I like the blues, though I couldn't name one blues artist or song.

Oh, Ray Charles.

Any of the negro prison blues Allan Lomax recorded do it for me.

I saw Buddy Guy about 25 years ago, playing in front of 30.-40 people at one of those summer venues in Italy where people eat, buy food from stalls, and watch a movie or see a free concert. How he ended up there...

Wow, that is amazing.

I am envious.






I found this kinda humorous....





"Rules of Singin The "Blues"...

If you're new to Blues music, or you like it but never really understood the whys and wherefores,
here are some very fundamental rules:

1. Most Blues begin with: "Woke up this morning..."

2. "I got a good woman" is a bad way to begin the Blues, unless you stick something nasty in the
next line, like, "I got a good woman, with the meanest face in town."

3. The Blues are simple to sing. After you get the first line right, repeat it. Then find something that rhymes -
sort of like this: "Got a good woman with the meanest face in town. Yeah, I got a good woman
with the meanest face in town .... Got teeth like Margaret Thatcher and she weigh 500 pound."

4. The Blues is not about choice. You stuck in a ditch, you stuck in a ditch...ain't no way out.

5. Blues cars: Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs and broken-down trucks. Blues don't travel in Volvos,
BMWs, or Sport Utility Vehicles. Most Blues transportation is a Greyhound bus or a southbound
train. Jet aircraft and state-sponsored motor pools ain't even in the running. Walkin' plays a major
part in the Blues lifestyle. So does fixin' to die.

6. Teenagers can't sing the Blues. They ain't fixin' to die yet. Adults sing the Blues. In Blues, "adulthood"
means being old enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.

7. Blues can take place in New York City, but not in Hawaii or anywhere in Canada . Hard times in
Minneapolis or Seattle is probably just clinical depression. Chicago , St. Louis , Kansas City,
Memphis, and N'awlins are still the best places to have the Blues. You cannot have the Blues in
any place that don't get rain.

8. A man with male pattern baldness ain't the Blues. A woman with male pattern baldness is.
Breaking your leg 'cause you were skiing ain't the Blues. Breaking your leg 'cause an alligator be
chompin' on it is.

9. You can't have no Blues in an office or a shopping mall. The lighting is wrong. Go outside to the
parking lot or sit by the dumpster.

10. Good places for the Blues:
a. highway
b. jailhouse
c. empty bed
d. bottom of a whiskey glass

11. Bad places for the Blues:
a. Nordstrom's
b. gallery openings
c. Ivy League institutions
d. golf courses

12. No one will believe it's the Blues if you wear a suit, less you happen to be an old person,
and you slept in it.

13. Do you have the right to sing the Blues?
Yes, if:
a. you're older than dirt
b. you're blind
c. you shot a man in Memphis
d. you can't be satisfied

No, if:
a. you have all your teeth
b. you were once blind but now can see
c. the man in Memphis lived
d. you have a 401 K or trust fund

14. Blues is not a matter of color. It's a matter of bad luck. Tiger Woods cannot sing the Blues.
Sonny Liston could have. Ugly white people also got a leg up on the Blues.

15. If you ask for water and your darlin' gives you gasoline, it's the Blues. Other acceptable Blues
beverages are:
a. cheap wine
b. whiskey or bourbon
c. muddy water
d. black coffee

The following are NOT Blues beverages:
a. Perrier
b. Chardonnay
c. Snapple
d. Slim Fast

16. If death occurs in a cheap motel or a shotgun shack, it's a Blues death. Stabbed in the back
by a jealous lover is another Blues way to die. So are the electric chair, substance abuse and
dying lonely on a broken-down cot. You can't have a Blues death if you die during a tennis
match or while getting liposuction.

17. Some Blues names for women:
a. Sadie
b. Big Mama
c. Bessie
d. Jennie

18. Some Blues names for men:
a. Joe
b. Willie
c. Little Willie
d. Big Willie

19. Persons with names like Sierra, Brittany, Sky, Bianca, and Heather cannot sing the Blues,
no matter how many men they shoot in Memphis."

We could use more of those type of venues here in the States!

Something in the first few replies bothered me and I can't let it go!

Hendrix used his lighter as a slide, and he got the idea from Syd Barrett.

I knew Barrett did, but I didn't know Hendrix copped it as well.  Thanks.

Hey Hoochie Coochie Man,

You gotta try and find a blues recording by the King Biscutt Boys.

Singing about his girlfriend....

"Her eyeballs look like a roadmap,
 and dey looking two differn't ways
 I'm sittin cross the table from her
 and she hasn't looked this good in days"

Well i hope it doesn't bother you that i remember seeing footage of Hendrix using his ring as a slide which sticks in my mind being a guitar player myself,plus i've read references to this in books/guitar magazines. ;)

In all probability i betcha  lighters and a few other smooth straight edged implements were used by guys in the delta decades before Barrett. :)

LOL!  That is awesome!


I will have to check into that.




But i'm only going to be the Hoochie Coochie Man for a few days before I return to Silenzio with a new and improved signature.

Ok, I thought I knew things, but why have I not heard of Jeff Healey.  The video I was watching was already blowing my shit away, and then when I heard he was blind.... dang.
Dunno if you heard the sad news of Healeys death (at 41 years) yesterday from the same cancer that stole his sight when he was only one :(

Easily the best and most exciting electric blues guitarist that i ever saw in a live concert.
