Subject: RE: Obit: Manias de Plata, old 'silver fingers'
woke up this morning with various thoughts....

1) i can't think of a single folk blues singer/guitarist who played strict twelve bar blues.

2) a query - seeing as we seem to have some people who know about flamenco. that cante hondo style, that sounds very like blues singing. the singer waves his hand about and seems seems to be extemporising. are they all frantically counting? keeping to a strict form.....
