Man that "Guitars and Righteous Men" story just melts me apart. What a tale, and how true.   AND a happy ending. Downright inspiring!

She writes prose as brilliantly as she does songs. If you go to her website, although the forum can be a bit sycophantic, you find that she does actually drop in and answer questions herself. When she answered a serious question of mine, I nearly fell off my chair!!!

Janis Ian is a Mudcatter, too. See This thread

I went to her site for the first time, after your links, JP, and must say that it is one of the best sites ever--her writings are great, and she has written the definitive defense of MP3 sharing, and, to show that she is more than just talk. has posted some great tracks of her own--listen to her guitar/voice version of 'Society's Child" if you wonder why Chet thought so much of her guitar playing!

As (almost) always, I concur with everything that M.Ted has said. Moreover, she is modest in the extreme when it comes to discussing her own ability on the guitar.

GUEST above is however mistaken in thinking that Janis Ian is a Mudcatter. She may well become one some day, but the posting referred to from "GUEST Janis Ian" was not in fact from her.

Absolutely marvelous! What a picture Janis paints of herself while telling about guitars and pickers.

Thanks Mike. I'm passing this on to my friends Eve and Ellen.

I am glad that we tend to agree Murray, as when we don't, it is at my peril--a thought that occurs to me each time I pop Tony McManus into the car CD player--have you managed to get your Cuban coffee? Yet another thing we agree on--
