I have a broad range and musical likes. One is the Blues. Recently I listened to a segment on radio national about slide guitar. Apparently it originated in India, was introduced to Hawaii and then was picked up by blues players in the south of the America. That’s strange in itself.
But in my mind, what’s more strange is my buying the song, recorded in 1937, on my lap top from iTunes whilst sitting on my decking having a beer.
What would Blind Boy Fuller think of that?
Check out my “most recent song purchased” link and think of Blind Boy Fuller, the life he led and the music he created whilst experiencing hardship we could not imagine.
