Justin Johnson can really play 'da blues' on a guitar......or a cigar box or a shovel, for that matter. :banana: :shrug:

Very good Wolfy.  I could drive a long ways on those songs.  That shovel has a terrific sound.

He is sure fine to listen to.  I like the instruments, especially the washtub guitar he has in another video.

I listened to the cigar box video. How do those loops work, what is he playing? I really wanted to like it.

 I hate to always be so contrary. That music page got hard to load. I'm just an ole rebel I guess.

  Some of my favorites...I'm a blues guy.




  I also enjoy a lot of other types, but blues is my Go To...my sitting on the beach at my cabin, watching the sunset, drinking a bourbon music.

  Aw crap, I gotta put one more....dunno why, but I just can't ever get sick of this song...'

  I have ahd the pleasure of seeing some of the great blues artists before they passed....Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter, BB King.

  Unfortunately, Bo Diddley was on my list, but I didn't get to see him before his passing.

  Performance wise.....Stevie Ray was the most rivetting performer I ever saw, bar none. It was mesmerizing watching him play...it wasn't so much like watching someone put on a performer, it was more like watching something just ooze out of the man, like it wasn't an act, it was just someting inside coming out.

  Johnny Winter was practically a corpse when I saw him...he literally looked like a white walker from Game of Thrones. He could hardly walk, he was stooped over, he looked 120 years old, even though he was only about 60, I think, at the time.  They sat him in a chair, and his fingers and hands just began to fly...it was wierd...like watching one of those Disney animatronic machines play....but man, his hands were just flying on that guitar while the rest of his body was motionless.

  BB King I saw on his 80th birthday. At that point, he wasn't really playing full songs, his band did most of the work, and he did a lot of chair dancing (he couldn't really stand very well), and chatting with the crowd, telling stories. Musically it wasn't very impressive, but the man still was full of life, and love, and all the charm and charisma he ever had. He made you feel like you were standing in Harvard Square chatting with a broke performer with his guitar case full of coins, and he was just smiling and laughing and singing and chair dancing. It was really kind of a warm, fun evening and you always felt the glow of being in the presence of greatness and a legend.

   Never got to see Buddy Guy. Still hoping to, though I'm not sure it's going to happen.

  My favorite contemporary blues man is Joe Bonamassa....in my mind the greatest living guitarist on the planet....I would say that he is a better guitar player than Stevie Ray Vaughan, but not quite on Stevie's level of artist, the ability to write great songs. He's good though.





  I've seen Joe several times, and I'll be going to see him again. He's bigger in Europe than he is in the US....just like so many other great blues artists.

  Incidentally, Joe got his start being the opening act for BB King...I think he was around 15 years old at the time.

That piece from 'Live At The Greek,' I'll Play The Blues For You, has been one of my all-time favorites of all of Bonamassa's stuff.  He needs to buy a bigger suit, though. :shrug:

I think they may have been applied with a paint roller. ???

So would I......she moves about as well as I ever saw anyone move across a dance floor.   The comments under the video indicated that her dance partner died at the age of 31.....pretty darned young, but I'll bet he died with a smile on his face! ;)

The loopers are digital recorders, they have various numbers of tracks depending on the unit you use. I saw Phil Keaggy in concert at the Newport Guitar Festival, he used one really well, had around 6 tracks going while playing over the top of them, including a percussion track he started off with recording the beat as he tapped the top of his guitar.

https://m.

I've seen some of Justin's videos linked on a guitar forum I frequent log into.

For the last 30 years I've been playing mostly blues, Graham Drout and Albert Castiglia are friends, we used to play some of the same venues in the Miami area. Albert was picked up by Jr. Well and toured with Jr. Up until he passed away.

Albert was invited to play the Florida Folk Festival a few years back, in this link he's playing a cigarbox guitar I built for him.



https://m.

I crushed my hand in motorcycle accedent back in 2012, my hand surgon repeatedly told me I would never play again, two months after my last appointment with him, when he removed the external fixation device from my left arm I had the opportunity to catch up with Albert at the high dive in Gainsville Fl, he invited me to sit in, I did. Some guy from the North Central Florida Blues Society Filmed this clip and put it up on YouTube. I sent a link to my hand surgon, thanking him for his fine work on my hand and pointed out to him I'm the guy on the right "o)

I may not have, I built this one maybe 5 or 6 years ago. Around the time I retired, a lot was going on at that time.

I still listen to him a lot, on Pandora.

I swear My 1967 Chevy Impala came to life with the heart of a Corvette whenever Maybellene Came on. Not Jerry Lewis, Or Johnny Rivers, Only Chuck Berry. I stuffed 6 of my friends in that car going swimming and they felt it too. We all started calling it Christine after that.

He had more influence on rock and roll than any other single individual. He had his followers, and was a great influence on nearly all musicians that rocked, but I believe he never got his due.

All the great songs he wrote, covered by every wanna be white and black, blues/rock guy, but the general public never got it. His only #1 hit in the US, was My Ding-A-Ling it's just damn embarrassing.

At least he was always surrounded by fans and didn't have to suffer the clowns too much. I saw him about 8 years ago, maybe 10.

RIP brother.
