Hi,
You guys should check out Seasick Steve.
He calls it 'three string trance music'. One man, one guitar, three strings and a carpeted wooden box that he taps his feet on.

Free downloads at his site : Seasicksteve.com

I first saw him on Jools Holland here in the UK and I was immediately struck by the simplicity of it all. Kinda made me wonder what Protools was for.

" ... it's hard for a white guy to do the blues ..."

Maybe. But not for a white girl = best bottle slide guitar there ever was and a really great voice: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bonnie-Raitt...dp/B0009JOPD0/ ... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bonnie-Raitt...dp/B00005RG9N/ ... http://www.amazon.de/Bonnie-Raitt-Fr...dp/B000HT1WNI/ ... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lightning-Bo...dp/B00099BJ2A/ (with BB & John Lee just before he died = these are the only one's I would buy = 24 bit audio, but in the PAL format and need a zone 2 player.

Bonnie has been ridden hard and put up wet ... she knows the blues.

For those interested in watching the disc go around: http://www.amazon.de/Nick-Time-Vinyl...dp/B0000001CO/ ... better vinyl than in the US.

Most likely you have not listened to Country music. Lucky you!

You don't get whiter than Johnny Winters. White artists have brought a lot to the blues. But they usually aren't frontmen.

I'm a Johnny Cash fan.

Good ****:

Being albino and having a twin brother definitely qualifies you to sing the blues.

Another white guy who surprised me was Ian Moore, when he released his first CD. But as far as Blues goes, it was a one-hit wonder. He changed styles after that, but that first album is worth listening.

Great to see all the input and links to resources. I beleive this thread was needed Fasteddy, are you a teacher? I read at the PBS that the kids are having "Blues" in school in the US. What a great idea.
I bought most of the Scorsese series when it was recommended to me by a smart guy Thanks, Blues.
Its really great to watch the seven DVD set. Bonnie Raitt gives a great cover of Skip James "I would rather be the Devil" and she can play bottleneck indeed. Here is a nice little read on Skip James: http://paramountshome.org/articles/s...%20project.pdf Somehow I find the guy amazing. His early music is a bit terrifying and spooky, but really appealing (at least to me) His guitarplay is some of the best, you will ever hear. Prepare for some surface noise though, its the old 78's thats been recorded.
Here is another great resource, if you want to look up an artist (or something else): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_...%28musician%29 I hit up an interesting guy, as you can see

Steen
