Now THAT is a juxtaposition of opposing styles which result in order and harmony, IMHO.

Nice dig, CCJ. cheers

I am going to plead unfamiliarity on this one. Is this gentleman a homegrown talent to your region of the south?

Ive seen this guy play a few oddball guitars.

He played some angular Peavey thing at one time too.

Theres also a clip of him playing a nice sunburst MIM Tele on a porch somewhere too.

Wow! Made my head spin around a couple of times!
A pointy guitar ain't the first thing you think of when you consider the blues. tongue
Very reminiscent of early John Lee Hooker's sound to my ear.

Just shows to go ya, the Blues is in the fingers and the soul...not the guitar!

Reminds me of R L Burnside, particularly the guitar tone and approach.

R.L. is one of the best Hills Bluesmen (vs. Delta kin) that I can think of. American civil war history is beyond my expertise. Perhaps R.L. was old enough to have served in the Boer war, but I digress..... Laughing Laughing

Ah, whatever. I still like my story better. Laughing That guy had some wicked side burn action going on too, if I recall.

Oh yeah, and to stay on topic... Westone something or other. Very Happy

Burnside's name became the term for the style of facial hair he sported. Massive sideburns down along his jaw and attaching to his equally massive mustache, but a clean shaven chin. So if you shave only your chin, but not the rest of your facial hair, you have a burnside. Very Happy

cheers When I retire and no longer need to "look presentable", I'll be sporting eccentric accents such as these. That is if my tastes don't change by then. But they say that as you age that you stay the same person inside (you just get smarter and hopefully more wise) and only your body changes, so my tastes shouldn't change too much. Very Happy
