I posted an old cover video I did of a Corey Harris song today; so, I thought it would be a good time to add another name to my “Who’s Your Daddy?” list. For those of you that didn’t read the first one, this is basically a list of the people that inspire me to create. This Catfish Blues video below is what got me hooked on Corey’s sound. That Delta Blues style walking bass got me hooked right away, but he embellishes it with his riffs to make it even more soulful. I also think he has a great blues...
It was the perfect
Witness; The blind blues player
Called his dobro to the stand.
This post is about my musical inspiration (my “Who’s Your Daddy” list). There will be more to posts come like this, and I eventually plan to compile a list, but for now I’ll start out with individual posts. In this post I have to send some love to Carlos Santana. I got this “Who’s Your Daddy” list idea from him in his autobiography. He said in blues music everyone has a “Who’s Your Daddy” list; it’s your list of artists that inspire you and consequently contribute to the development of your own style. I’m not sure that I like every Santana...
I heard the wind tell a whisper About me again. I heard the ocean answer back, Said I was "wishing, wishing", Wishing I was free, Oh!, like the wind, Wishing I was free just like the wind. How do they know me?! They can't see me in my home! How do they know me? 'Guess they see I'm all alone. Oh, I'm trapped up in my mind. You can see it in my eyes; But mostly, You can feel in my vibes. I heard a bullfrog laughing at me As I was walking by, And clouds are writing messages About me in the sky. I wish I had some wings So I could fly away; Fly away, and leave my pain behind. How do they know me?! They can't see me in my home! How do they know me? 'Guess they see I'm all alone. Oh, I'm trapped up in my mind You can see it in my eyes But mostly, You can feel in my vibes.
