Ben, another group called The Spinners with some fantastic shots of the UK. The song was all about the "Right to Roam". Written by Ewan MacColl I've walked and climbed in most of the places in th

Yes.  I'm aware of all three, but only Robert Johnson has made much impact on me.  And I did say 'some'. Try to keep up.

I can't resist putting up this video of Elizabeth Cotton

Interesting that she played left handed with the guitar strung for a right handed player. I wonder how many lefties played like that?

Quite a few of the 'older' blues players Oz. The two that immediately come to mind are Albert King and Otis Rush.

On a modern theme, the Amazing Eric Gales, still have tickets to see him, now over a year old!!

I listen to "Always" and I'm thinking of fabulous Mrs WW, from happy courting days to the sweetest honeymoon, through all the years, all the sunsets, all the sunrises, all the hard times, near disasters, great times, son off to uni, daughter's marriage to a good man, all the travels in cars, boats, planes, all the beaches and all the playing in the sea with the children, all the playing by the sea with grandchildren, tears and laughter. Life's tapestry.

 

Sitting in the garden sharing a drink with my wife in the slow dusk of a spring evening, the quietness conveying a myriad unspoken feelings between us.

When I was an uninspired 24yo I could never have dreamt anything like this, she gave me the dream and made it real. Last month we celebrated our wedding anniversary. It's a fairly big number.

Hi Oztalgian, not the same but I played in a five piece band and the lead and rhythm guitarists were left-handed. The rhythm player learn to play right-handed.
