SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Looking to join or help form a blues band that plays electric delta blues or hill country blues. I can play rhythm, lead, slide, etc and I am familiar with open tunings. The stuff that I really like to play and am somewhat competent at are songs by Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe, Charley Patton, Muddy Waters, Blind Blake (his blues and ragtime tunes), John Lee Hooker, Albert King, and for the more "modern" stuff Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Keith Richards (thru Exiles) Freddie King, Howlin' Wolf's guitarists Willie Johnson and Hubert Sumlin, Johnny Winter. I believe in learning the original arrangements of the early blues songs and not trying to shoehorn them into the 12 bar blues shuffle that every band does these days. Will travel to play/rehearse, have own transportation. E mail me at xawseebn at dot com
