http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasick_Steve...sed_Instruments

 

As well as an electric guitar and an acoustic guitar, Seasick Steve owns (and plays) a few obscure and personalised instruments such as these:

 

* The Three String Trance Wonder

o This is a normal guitar, but with only three strings. It has an old Harmony pickup added (with duct tape) and is played tuned to G, G and B using an E string in the A position, a D in the G position and a G in the B position. At his gigs, he often tells the story that he bought it for $75 in this condition in Como, Mississippi from a man named Sherman, who later told him he only paid $25 for it the day before. Steve vowed never to add another string, and that he would tour the world telling his story of how Sherman ripped him off. All in good fun as Sherman is a good buddy. A lot of the time he also adds (while picking up or putting away the guitar) that it is the "...biggest piece of shit in the world, I swear". During some Summer 2008 performances, the guitar had only two strings.

 

* The One Stringed Diddley Bow

o This is a one stringed string instrument played with a slide (He uses an old screwdriver for this purpose). It consists of a 2 foot long 2x4, with a semi-loose guitar string nailed to it at both ends. It was made especially for him by James 'Super Chikan' Johnson.

 

* The 'MDM', The Mississippi Drum Machine.

o A small wooden box that is stomped upon, providing percussion. It is decorated with a Mississippi license plate, and a small piece of carpet.

pentru mine... cel mai tare harp blues man este si va fi SONNY BOY WILLIAMSON II (RICE MILLER)

 

 

 

 

nu e Little Walter si nici Sugar blue... dar omu' are suflet cu caru' :)

 

 

Sonny Boy Williamson II, nicknamed "King of the Harmonica" by his peers, was one of the most inspiring harp players in blues history. With his passionate yet understated style, his metronome-like timing, and his endlessly inventive technique, he has influenced generations of players, including such virtuosos as Howling Wolf, James Cotton and Junior Wells. In action "Sonny Boy unfolded slowly," according to blues writer Paul Oliver. "He did not give away all his secrets either in conversation or music. Instead, when he played, he built up the tension of his phrasing with logical development. One had to listen for quite a while as he progressed from short bursts, single notes, punctuated phrases to filigree patterns of complexity and richness. His large, calloused lips enfolded the cheap harps that he played and he seemed to mould the notes through the long fingers of his cupped hands (King Biscuit Time liner notes).

 

Marc Ryan, another long-term admirer, wrote: "The tone of Sonny's harmonica was unusually full, the result of a combination of virtuosic breath control and an especially large resonating chamber created by cupping his hands around his ... harp ... Sonny thus brought unique timbres to his blues, which were ... laden with a joyful sensuality" (Boppin' With Sonny liner notes).

 

Sonny Boy's harp style included "intricately woven phrasing, bold sonic textures, trills and vibrato ... He was also an effective showman -- he could, for instance, put the entire harp in his mouth and still draw notes. More important, his playing made the harp the centre attraction, no matter how many other great blues musicians shared the stage with him (Sonny Boy Blues Society Home Page).

 

For blues harp aficianados, here are some further notes on Sonny Boy's innovative technique:

 

  • His preferred harmonica was a 10-hole Hohner Marine Band or OId Standby, but he sometimes played the larger Marine Bands: the 12-hole 364 and the 14-hole 365. Some publicity photographs show him holding an Echo-Vamper, which is similar to the 364. From time to time -- for example, on "Dissatisfied" -- he used a Hohner Koch Chromatic. It has been claimed that he modified his harps by slightly bending the reeds with a toothpick, but this may have been a misconception.
  • His preferred harmonica keys were F, C, B flat and D, but he also played in E, G and A.
  • He generally played in second position, with the occasional exception (e.g., on "Trust My Baby" be played in first position on a G harp, and on "I Don't Know" he played in third position on a C harp).
  • He used the tongue-blocking (as opposed to lip-puckering) technique most of the time and was an accomplished note-bender.
  • His Chess recordings were characterised by single-note runs, but his Storyville sessions reveal a skilful use of rhythm and chords.
  • He had a largely acoustic sound, playing to a mike on a stand and using his hands extensively for tremolo and wah-wah effects. However, he sometimes opted for an amplified sound, using a mike cupped in his hands (e.g., in "Cross My Heart").
  • Almost all his notes are lower than the 5-hole draw. He rarely used the top octave, but when he did (as in "Sonny's Rhythm") he used it very effectively.

Pentru mine cel mai apropiat de sufletul meu harmonica player ramane Sonny Terry:

 

De asemenea recomand cu caldura Lightning Hopkins, Leadbelly, Fred McDowell si chiar Blind Blake

 

E o chestiune de gusturi in final :)

Roosevelt 'Booba' Barnes (September 25, 1936, Longwood, Mississippi - April 2, 1996, Chicago), electric guitarist, band leader and owner of 'The Playboy Club' on Nelson Street in Greenville Mississippi. Booba Barnes did of lung cancer in 1996. His first and only album was released in 1990. The album was hailed by Allmusic as "an instant modern classic" and Guitar Player called Barnes "a wonderfully idiosyncratic guitar player and an extraordinary vocalist by any standard".

James Lewis Carter Ford (born c1920 Forest, Mississippi) is an American blues musician better known by his stage name, T-Model Ford. Unable to remember his exact date of birth, he began his musical career in his early seventies and has continuously recorded for the Fat Possum Records label.

 

His musical style melds traditional Chicago blues and juke joint blues styles with the rawness of Delta blues and the rebellious attitude of 1970s-style punk. Alternately known as "The Taildragger", Ford, in reference to his age, has been known to tell studio musicians, "T-Model Ford is going to remember you sorry fuckers how it's done."

 

James Ford grew up working various blue collar jobs as early as his preteen years, such as plowing fields, working at a sawmill, and later in life becoming a lumber company foreman and then a truck driver. However, when reflecting on this time in his life, Ford recalls, "I could really stomp some ass back then. I was a sure-enough-dangerous man."

 

During his tenure as a truck driver working another job at a log camp, Ford was sentenced to ten years on a chain gang for murder. Allegedly Ford was able to reduce his sentence to two years.

 

He ensuingly spent many of his years in conflicts with law enforcement. When asked about his run-ins with the law, he jokes, "I don't know [how many times I've been to jail]. How many? Every Saturday night there for awhile."

 

Currently, Ford resides in Greenville, Mississippi and also writes an advice column for Arthur magazine. (This has since ended). Ford claimed to be 88 at his birthday celebration in June 2008. According to records, his birth was somewhere between 1921 and 1925. According to his half-sister (still alive in Tennessee), he was born in 1922.

Junkie, esti mare, cum ii gasesti, nu stiu, dar imi place!!!

Dacã-ți plac T-model Ford și RL Burnside, mai sunt și alții din aceeași nișã de blues. Pe cei mai mulți îi gãsești la casa Fat Possum Records.

 

Cine are rãbdare sã-i asculte pe aceºti „vãcari infatuați” va observa cã existã blues, feeling și expresivitate dincolo de Eric Clapton și BB. :)

 

De exemplu

Dupa uni critici sau cercetatori /studii bluesul NOU modern se imbina cu HipHop ce este considerat bluesul orasenesc actual ( actual de un veac ? deci are deja vechime treaba daca o luam asa ). Au si inregistrat uni ceva fusion-uri de blues+HipHop si de astea ...daca va uitati la All you need is love a lui Scorsese in Electric Ladyland Studio este un repoartaj despre aceast aspect.Cum si unde sa dezvoltat nu stim noi de aici..daca nu incepe o casa de discuri sa promoveze si sa raspandeasca sa organizeze concerte nu prea vom afle ce canta cei care incerca alta forma mai moderna..

Cum bluesul este o forma de poezie si hip-hop este tot pe acolo mare diferenta nu este.

Tot pe atunci a avut si Jeff Beck o perioada de fusion cu HipHop si D&B sau si Dans/Electro la el totul este stilizat ..

 

Chiar acu noaptea am vizionat multe cu Jeff Beck de la Crossroad Guitar Festival 2010..si cu altii ..
