A Musical Interlude: Delta Blues Slide Guitar

Would you believe that by day this amazing guitarist is a Belgian shopkeeper? No kidding! That's a long way from the Mississippi Delta, both geographically and culturally. But he certainly has the chops [that's musician's slang for technical aptitude, in case you didn't know ;0)]. If you are an aspiring guitarist and have the passion and patience (not to mention the time for practice) to develop the requisite skills you can learn to play it via his freely available on-line lessons complete with tabs - follow the link here. Or if you just love country blues you might want to buy his CD. I love the way this bloke plays; technically good blues guitarists are a dime a dozen these days, but "daddystovepipe" also has the blues feeling. Bless him!

Among the many great things about the blues genre is that old age actually serves as an enhancement!

So true, Joel.
Like a good guitar or a fine wine!
