Duke Robillard is probably the best living blues guitarist today and anybody who knows what he's talking about will tell you that I'm sure.

Ohhh...EEE...!!!

I just bought me a brand new Dean Palomino Hollow Body Electric guitar in Gloss Natural finish with case for $460.00 incl. tax.

It's the exact same design at T-Bone Walker's main squeeze with the tripple P-90's...! Sounds great and plays beautifully...!!!

Now... I'm a Man of The Blues...!!!

(((BIG SMILE)))

Poor Duke...!!!

Did you ever think about all of the other great guitar players who played with crippled of injured hands...? Django Reinheardt's was injured in a fire, Less Paul had serious arthritis and Jerry Garcia had a deformed right hand. Can you think of any others...?

Hi Dave, Yeah, Bucky is amazing still! I have lots of his work over the years. He's a band all by himself! And John ain't no slouch either! I saw them come into the Iriudim 10 or saw years ago on a Les Paul Monday night gig and Les went and got a beer and those two tore it up! Duke

It was the first time I ever played with Matt. I told him to just play his blues song the same way as he always would and not to adjust his normal playing to mine. I wanted him in the driver's seat. And that I would "respond" to him and not the other way around. The blues guitarist's role is more responsive ( as in "call and responce" ) than that of a so called "lead" guitarist. I think that is a subtle but salient point that many don't quite understand. Just my two cents worth...!

Double stops are important. Maybe the Dukester could do us a long detailed lesson on just that someday at they pertain to the blues.

Awesome.  I love the groove / feel you guys got going.  I like those double stops around 2:15.

Sonic Junction should let Rickie King Russell do guitar lessons for us giutar players too. I'd like to learn that little walk up he uses at 1:11 to 1:14 on the time dial.

I really want to expand my knowlege of double stops, but I want to still confine my scope to the Blues. My motto: The Blues, the whole Blues and nothin' but the blues. That may sound narrow minded, but frankly I see a whole universe in just the blues.

Attn: Mike Caren... Considering MikeH's suggrstion... I wish you'd take a look at the "Guitar Pro" software, it's a wonderful and usefull program that I use. It's inexpensive. ( I'm not working for them..., honest... )
