Thread Name: Delta Blues CD from Starbucks
Subject: RE: Delta Blues CD from Starbucks
Very interesting.........

I'll be going to the Starbucks in Sterling, Virginia this Wednesday. Maybe I'll pick up a CD there if they don't charge and arm and a leg for it.

The interesting coincidence is that I'll be there to "play the blues" from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM. I'll be doing three of the songs from their CD (but not like the masters). I have to agree with Max that it's not all Delta on the CD. For example, Lead Belly lived mostly in Texas and Arkansas. His style on the 12-string is pretty individualistic and not really Delta blues (when he played the blues).
