Is this the greatest blues lyric ever?This past Sunday, my son Brennen and I were doing body work on his 1962 Corvair and I had a blues radio channel blasting the entire time. The station kept dipping into some serious BB King throughout the day, reminding me why this guy was truly the King of the Blues. Who else could write the lyric, "Nobody loves me but my mother...and she could be jivin' too!" Wow.
I made a t-shirt tribute to that lyric and it's the Shirt of the Week over at Primal Threads. The shirts go up to 5xl and are also in women's sizes, too. (Scroll down to see other blues shirts at the bottom of this email).
Speaking of blues legends, I just released this video featuring a 2-string guitar built by modern Gospel blues legend, Glenn Kaiser.And one more note about the blues... I've been going through my entire Youtube channel and I'm starting to re-film the earliest videos featuring blues basics. Now that I have better cameras, lighting and split screen editing, I can teach you how to play the blues more effectively on your cigar box guitars.
There's so much more coming soon... including those one-on-one lessons I've been promising.
