Thread Name: The fiddle and the blues?
Subject: RE: The fiddle and the blues?

Point taken, re: the slide guitar. I happened to listen to an old Jack Teagarden blues recording on my way to work this morning. He was an idol of mine when most kids my age were listening to early rock n' roll. That bone is an instrument I always wanted to play, but never quite got around to. My dad couldn't afford a trombone, so I started with a borrowed school cornet and e-flat horn, tried trumpet and eventually wound up with guitars. A weird way to get to a good place, I reckon.
