The sweetest and smoothest old school bluesman that ever lived!
The music starts at 0:40... it grooves like mad, and the vocal harmonies are (natural) genius.
Little Walter makes the harmonica freaking wail in this one!
"Oh! ...don't get me killed honey!"
You like harp, eh? I've played since I was 8. (47 yrs, one of the best things my dad ever taught me!)
I can play that. And I can play better than that. Only reason I make that claim, is there's someone here on this board that's heard me play a LOT, that can back me up! budman.
When I started playing, a Hohner was $2. The damn things are $26 now. And to play any song, you need 12 of them. 11 for me, because I just don't have the wind for a G anymore. It's like self imposed hyperventilating, and you know you've had enough when your face and teeth start getting numb.
Blues is my first love for that very reason.
Well to hell with it, let's just load the stage and play!
Doc Watson... playing a country blues/gospel/traditional one.
Just started playing last Christmas. I suck but I've learned a few simple songs. Up until last night I've only had a C so a lot of the songs I learned sounded wrong. I basically play while driving alone. I spend a lot of time in my car and it's fun to play along with the radio. I just picked up a G last night and you're right about the hyperventilating. I had no idea. (But I'm glad you said it because I thought I got a bad harp) I actually feel like my tonsils are being pulled out of my throat and I've only played it a couple of times.
Ive got a vinyl bootleg called Woke up this morning and found myself dead. Its actually just one of many different names for the live Jimi stuff that featured Jim Morrison attempting to play harmonica and wailing "fuck her in the ass! Popular favorite"! and stuff
