Not completely blues, but just wondering, any fans? I just admire him...

I was listining to some of his stuff on iTunes earlier today and thought it was pretty cool (reminded me of those old Buell Kazee recordings).

I just love this music, I call it "Slow Bluegrass". I also like the faster version of Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs.

It can be great fun to change things around. Ever try playing "Johnny B. Goode" as a slow blues?

Sure am. I love Ralph's voice.

Yeah, they grew up not far from here.

I'm going tomorrow to a little country clinic near the Carter Family's home.

I don't think so. They'd make me scrub it off!
