    What are you listening to?


    OK... I admit I have an ulterior motive for asking. I love music. All kinds of music. In fact, I'm hard pressed to name a genre that I don't like. (Well... maybe one. ) I know, that's weird. But that's me. I love musical variety. Even though it's a small world, there's still a lot of diversity out there, if you just look.

    I'm fortunate to live within broadcast range of a couple radio stations that don't follow a corporate-approved playlist. But sometimes I go online and scout around for something even more obscure. Ergo, my request here. Have you heard anything lately that stood out as noteworthy? If it's something online, that would be cool. But even if it isn't, and you think it's especially good, post it anyway. Please don't hold back.


    So... what are you listening to?

    Right this minute, Thin Lizzy. Earlier on some Rory Gallagher.

    Generally speaking I'm a Blues and Blues/Rock kinda guy. You'll often find me listening to Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Cream, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Otis Rush, Blind Boy Fuller, T-Bone Walker and a lot more in the same area. I'll listen to anything that isn't a product though. I can't stand corporate music of any genre any more than I can stand "yes" men.

Pink Anderson, Etta Baker, Sonny Terry, Blind Willie McTell and Blind Boy Fuller are just a few of the recognisable artists associated with the Piedmont Blues tradition.

    I always did wonder what the Piedmont Blues were, I figured it was just a style of playing/picking

    That's some nice listening there MikeTbob

    Dapper, you're the first person I've heard refer to Piedmont blues outside of wikipedia I came to it through Blind Boy Fuller and it's had a big influence on my own playing. Maybe you guys would like to see how I came to Blind Boy Fuller, with me growing up in Ireland....well, check this out :-

    YouTube - Rory Gallagher - Pistol Slapper Blues

    Sorry for mentioning Rory twice in 24 hours, but I just got back from the Rory Gallagher festival on Monday
