Swamp Blues

Slim Harpo delivers the languid swamp blues Louisiana sound with as little effort as it apparently takes here on King Bee which was later covered by almost everybody including Englishmen The Pink Floyd

If you`d like to take the swamp outta the blues and head into jazz experimentalism start with Captain Beefheart`s Diddy Wah Diddy and head into the space of Trout Mask Replica and Bat Chain Puller.

Jeff Beck

I`ve been lucky enough to spend an entire gig standing next to Jeff Beck, drink a few beers, chat awhile and ask him some questions about tremelo and the performances I`d seen at Hammersmith Odeon. I also saw him at The South Bank in London and he played with John McLaughlin and The White Stripes.
