3 string mojo

Postby 3stringmojo » Tue Feb 05, 2008 6:44 pm

A hello to all, specially the old friends I still see on the forum from time to time, and you know zactly who you are :)

I'm puttering around over on http://www.3stringmojo.com and paying special attention to what has become simply the best meeting place for blues players and blues lovers on the Net. Hat's off.

Needless to say, the slide bug has me by the throat these days, mostly on the Cigar Box Guitars I"m building. I got to pondering one of my favorites, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and it seems to me that that kind of haunting, drill-it-into-your-monkey-nerve blues might just go well stripped down even leaner.

Anyway, don't know if there are others out there in the forum who are messing with CBG's and slide.

Later, I hope -

Dr. Mojo

Whoa, I haven't seen that name around here in a LONG time!

I wondered what became of the good Dr. Oh, I still remember fondly the old "Slide Guitar.com" days. Doc, don't be a stranger.

well, I'm new here, so I'm not going wow, but it was CBG's that got me interested in slide. I'll be getting my first reso guitar in a coupla weeks.

For now I build, play and have sold a few of these little blues machines.

Mighty good to see you here by any name, Doc!

Hey, I've got Big Ass Buick (the whole CD, that is) on my iPod. :D

Can't say I was here to see Dr Mojo the first time around, but that site was... inspiring, to say the least.

I remember when I first stumbled onto this site a few years ago, I really loved those essays by him about the death of live music, the response to "Living Blues" magazine, etc etc... I've already bookmarked the new page. Great stuff.

Thanks for the good and kind words :)

I can already tell that 3stringmojo.com is morphing into the "cigar box mentality" which is to say, blues direct and uncluttered as symbolized by the 3 string cigar box guitar.

I'm still alive and well, or at least half of each, and being remembered is the best medicine/tonic a guy could hope for!
