re: Patrick Sweany

"Good soul singers always make me cry"

Million To Me by Patrick Sweany is a sweet gem.

That Rev Gary Davis song he did had some gnarly tone. Nice pickin'. Nice git.

I like the raunch of Muddy Shoes. Tearin' that shit up! I love that dirty fuzzed out slide guitar shit when it's done with such high energy.

Thanks, maps.

I led a blues band some 10 years ago.
I like the swing in that blues music. That tuplet feel. Good.

But, IMHO, blues is boring because they're hooked on that 12 bars.
Why do musicians composing those blues songs are so lazy that they don't
even want to try to break the "formula".
Blues needs some new ideas.
Keep the swing, keep the feel, but try to do something new !
:idea:

^^If we wanna hear a cover of Mustang Sally or Jessie's Girl we'll call you.

The last thing I posted here before today was Some Blues But Not the Kind That's Blue by Sun Ra. You should have listened to that.

I don't know Jessie's Girl !
:smoke:
I play Mustang in a Retro Band, never played it in my Blues band.
Hope you won't call me.
:smoke:

We played Robben Ford, SRV, mostly. and some others (Taj Mahal, Hendrix, Powder Blues, etc...)
No B.B.King kind of stuff.

I listened to Sun Ra. Sounds more like Jazz than Blues. In fact, it's not a Blues.
Interesting, but not Blues.

If Sun Ra say's it's some blues then , damn it, it's some blues.

I referred you to Sun Ra doing just what you said you wanted. Now you're complaining it's not blues. Not formula enough? And on top of that, you don't even know one of the greatest blues songs ever-Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield.

Sun Ra wants me to believe it's blues. But not the kind that's blue.

Maps will be awake soon and he'll help us straighten this shit out.

Sorry, I didn't know you responded to me.
I went to listen to a few tracks.
It's still blues to me but mixed with a rock attitude, well, to my ears.

I like what you said
"What have the Whites to be blue about ?"
:lol: 8)
