    Funny you should ask - another MIM Strat followed me home today.

    Yeah, I'm having a good time fooling with the blues.

    "Fooling with the blues", that's a good way of putting it. That's where I'm at. Never learned to play proper and not gifted but I have a good time with the blues. How many of those strats you got these days, they must be stacked up like chord wood. I picked up a MIM Fender Thinline 72 Reissue a while back, pretty good guitar for the money.

    Well - that's the thing about the blues. You get to do noodle around in the scales combining notes and putting little riffs together, and maybe play them over a 12 bar progression in a key of your choice. I haven't learned any songs officially, but I can sit for a long time and combine random notes and string bends. I carry a guitar in my work truck, and often times sit in a park at lunchtime and play for the trees.

    The old guys like Reed, Johnson, Muddy, and Hooker make it sound like it is easy to do, but for me it is deceptively hard. I can play right along with Jimmy Reed most times, until he gets to the turn-around. He's too fast for me on that, but I'm catching up. One day.......

    Strats? Let's see.- purple, maroon, cream, black, sunburst........ looks like 5, and a 6th cheaper ($30) Arbor strat copy I keep in the truck. Keep in mind, I'm a southpaw so they are a bit harder to find. But I'm doing my best to corner the local market.

    Some more flea market finds got a spin yesterday:

    Ray Charles - Ray Charles Greatest Hits, a 1962 album featuring Hit The Road Jack, Georgia On My Mind, and other standards.

    Jan and Dean - Command Performance/Live In Person, a 1965 pressing of a live concert in Sacramento.
    This one is a hoot, and a great listen because it contains most all their hit songs, performed whilst teenage girls scream in delight.

    Elvis - Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden. Recorded/released in 1972. Meh - he's The king, but by this time he was pretty much mailing it in. Kind of boring.

    Ooh! Awesome. But, is it the REAL Sonny Boy Williamson?

    Why, yes - yes, it is. The fellow that started it must be a very interesting man, and everyone he meets just adores him.

    Well, now. I just learned something new- thanks for that tidbit of info!

    Looks like my record is that latter, recorded by the 2nd Sonny Boy Williamson that died in 1965.

    Yeah, I have a friend who is quite particular about differentiated between Sonny Boy I and II. He likes the first better. They are both great harp players.

    The musical delight of the evening is: Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain
