Yeah, Barbeque Bob Maglinte's the one who pops in on our forum now and then.

I actually just got a 'best of' of his the other day, the old dead black one, that is. GREAT! "Barbeque Blues" was the first track on it.
Of course, I also heard "you don't know my mind" and thought that Guy Davis should just give it up.. ;)

He's great isn't he? I heard the song on one of Stefan Grossmans broadcasts (avaliable for download at his US site). I think the broadcast was about Atlanta blues, under the link Fingerstyle Guitar Workshop. I'm gonna get a CD with him if I can find one.

If anyone's interested, I found out he's probably frailing on this song.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Aug-02-05 AT 06:37 AM (EST)]Forgive ignorance, but I think, not sure, but think frailing is technical speak for pull-offs.

Frailing is equivalent to strumming...pull-offs are notes sounded by the fretting hand only (without picking) - the opposite (in terms of motion) of a hammer-on.

Frailing's a strumming technique using the fingertips. Think of the '20s uke players in their raccoon coats.

Some banjo players use it... Basically, it's a pattern repeated, I'm working on a song with a lot of frailing right now (inspired by Mr BBQ) that's pretty standard. I pick a bass note with my index finger, strum two strings with my middle finger nail and play a second bass note with my thumb. The timing is a bit different than the standard blues.

A. P. Carter dd a simular thing they reverently call it hte Carter Family Brush Stroke. Melody is played mostly with thumb, fingers do downstroke for rythem.
