Thought I'd say hello

Postby DonnyK » Tue Oct 05, 2010 3:02 pm

29 year old from Manchester, UK.

Been listening to blues for years and playing guitar for about 15. Would say my traditional holy trinity of musicians are John Martyn, Ry Cooder and Tom Waits. This has grown to include Davy Graham and more recently Bob Brozman. Love acoustic blues in particular.

More recently been listening to the likes of Albert Cummings, Ian Siegal, Ben Prestage (who I'm going to see touring with Siegal in November), Josh White, SRV (it's taken me a while to get round to him - was always primarily acoustic black man blues: Mississippi John Hurt being a long time love). But yeah, getting more and more into the white man electric blues.

So, hello! Pleased to be here

I've only just turned 29 (August) so still mostly ahead of me. My first baby is due in January though so I'm sure I'll age considerably...

Wow! Congrats.

My partner feels that a baby would interfere with her XBox/Halo time. Like in this video:
