Django, will always be remembered by me, as one of the greatest at improvisation. He has inspired me to try and learn to improvise and to play through the pain in my hands due to arthritis as I get older. I'm so glad others can experience his playing on YouTube. cool

Today( 2/11/19) marks the 105th anniversary of the birth of another of my favorite "old time" bluesmen.....

JOSH WHITE Sr.



His son(Jr.) would be a "regular" on a local '70's children's TV show, HOT FUDGE every weekend morning. My kids LOVED that show!

Funny but,

My Mom wasn't really a Beatles "fan", bu did like a couple/few of their earlier tunes, and she too like GEORGE. I'd kid her about it because her husband's( my stepdad) name was George too, but she said she thought out of all of them that HE was the most handsome: "Those dark, piercing eyes just seem to go through you." wink

Early on she used to laugh that, "Those skinny legs could HOLD UP under the weight of that big guitar!" grin

Today is the 117th anniversary of the birth of ....
EDWARD JAMES "Son" HOUSE.
A name big in the realm of the blues genre. And sadly, a name that too many people think by just KNOWING it, makes them "experts" about blues. wink
