There was a huge debate about blues on another board. In response to that thread I recorded this (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=m4P5xGqPTNc). Some of you might like it...

Very cool. As a resonator player, I'd also argue that the one chord blues is possible (worked for John Lee Hooker).

LOL!

me played blues on bagpipes first time ever yesterday... it's perfect for it, since the pipes sometimes sound sort of wailing...

You need to check out Rufus Harley (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeAsSgPBmO0&feature=related)playing jazz bagpipes...



But for the life of me, I'll never understand the need for some folks to codify musical styles into rigid "correct" forms. (see Bluegrass & hardcore punk rock.) It's all a bunch of pedantic bull from folks who haven't listened to enough music and want to appear knowledgeable.

Codification is life.. it's how we relate and identify. I would imagine you are proud to be an American? I'm just glad to be alive :rock:

Thanks for the tutorial, Pete. It's great to have such readily available help from experienced players and I hope you feel that the time and effort you put in is appreciated. (and maybe you'll do some more ...)
