    I dunno :D

    I haven’t got a lot of traction with this thread, mostly me and the sex chicken. But I like it, so I’m going to keep adding to it. If you haven’t been through this thread, there is some good stuff in here!

    @Hong Kong Phooey@Hong Kong Phooey here is a different version of Sugaree than what you may be used to :D
    JG was influenced by Elizabeth Cotten, especially if you go back into his early bluegrass days. You may have heard him cover her "Freight Train", and you can hear this style of playing on the Shady Grove album too.

    More useless trivia by Grateful Dude....

    The great Jesse "Lone Cat" Fuller. One man band: Guitar (often 12 string); contraption around his neck with microphone, harmonica, and kazoo; a Fotdella (which is a bass rig he invented and played with foot pedals), and a kick drum and hi-hat he played with the other foot.

    My brain can't handle that many tasks at one time........pretty cool stuff :D

    @Hauler@Hauler I think it was you I talked to on here about folks that play their guitar upside-down....Elizabeth Cotten was one I would have mentioned. I've tried it before and it totally scrambles my brain, it's like starting over again with the instrument. Anyway, here's another cool vid

    Earlier today, my five year old asked me to add this to his playlist that I have for him (Spotify). And then asked me to take him to the library so we could read about Sister Rosetta :D

    Someday he’s going to realize how old school the music I introduce him to is lol

    I saw him a couple years ago, totally agree.

    Awesome to watch, and he told some funny stories. His banter in between songs was priceless.

    I think he spent half the night tuning his guitar and bullshitting. And I loved every second of it.
