Subject: 'Your Blues Name'
From: YOR
Date: 29 Apr 02 - 10:05 PM

I have been hanging around mudcat for a couple of years but I don't know if this has appeared here before or not. It's floating around some other forums. Its' proven to be a lot of fun. If this is a repeat, so I wasted alittle more of cyperspace.

My compliments to the unknown person who wrote this and to the any number of people who have retyped it and passed it on.

"Skinny Baby Smith" here! Over and out.

------------------------------------------------

This was pretty popular on the Taylor Guitar Forum and the Acoustic Guitar Forum. Let's see how it does here. ------------ I saw this on the Carvin Message Board and thought it was cool.

From the first list, take the name using the initial of your first name. From the second list, do the same with your middle name. From the third, your surname.

First List A = Fat; B = Muddy ; C = Crippled; D = Old; E = Texas; F = Hollerin'; G = Ugly; H = Brown; I = Happy; J = Boney; K = Curly; L = Pretty; M = Jailhouse; N = Peg Leg; O = Red; P = Sleepy; Q = Bald; R = Skinny; S = Blind; T = Big; U = Yella; V = Toothless; W = Screamin'; X = Fat Boy; Y = Washboard; Z = Steel-Eye

Second List A = Bones; B = Money; C = Harp; D = Legs; E = Eyes; F = Lemon; G = Killer; H = Hips; I = Lips; J = Fingers; K = Boy; L = Liver; M = Gumbo; N = Foot;O = Mama; P = Back; Q = Duke; R = Dog; S = Bad Boy; T = Baby; U = Chicken; V = Pickles; W = Sugar; X = Cracker; Y = Tooth; Z = Smoke

Third List A = Jackson; B = McGee; C = Hopkins; D = Dupree; E = Green; F = Brown; G = Jones; H = Rivers; I = Malone; J = Washington; K = Smith; L = Parker; M = Lee; N = Thompkins; O = King; P = Bradley; Q = Hawkins; R = Jefferson; S = Davis;T = Franklin; U = White; V = Jenkins; W = Bailey; X = Johnson; Y = Blue; Z = Allison

Old Killer Davis. Well, not sure about the old but it's mean and cool. I'll settle for that. My partner, who does sing blues, comes out as Curly Legs McGee, not sure if she'd be too pleased by that: her legs are reasonably straight.

I was advised that the way to pick a blues name was:

1) Select (at random) a physical handicap or deformity for the first name.

2) Select a fruit or vegetable for the middle name.

3) Select the surname of an ex-President of the US for the last name.

That works, but this is more definite.

You know, I found this no fun to use family names. All the last names the same just didn't do it. Especially my 4 brothers, all 5 of us have a first name that starts with 'R', and with the last name being the same, BORING! And yes I was called by the dogs name many times by my parents.

Old Money Jefferson here, you all. A moniker that sets with me jes' fine; a name that perches on my wafer-thin form as jauntily as my slightly battered silk top hat, its brim dipped just above my cracked and cloudy monocle. Pull up a tattered silk settee whilst I amuse you with a few of my self-penned favorites: "Ain't Got No Lovin' Baby to Share My Chateaubriand" "Thirty Years of Cognac Tears" and "Nobody Knows the Securities and Exchange Commission-Related Troubles I've Seen!
