For those of you who enjoy my banjo music I wanted to let you know that I've taken a recent interest in learning blues guitar and harmonica. I can already play some blues guitar, both fingerstyle and electric improvisation but I've always wanted to do a deep dive into the genre and REALLY learn it inside and out. So, I've dusted off my 6 string electric guitar and am enjoying taking the pentatonic minor scale into uncharted territory! I've also set a goal to learn blues harp (an instrument I have never really played). I have absolutely no doubt that banjo fever will return and I still play my instruments frequently, but for now I feel compelled to follow my muse and see where it takes me!

Rick, I am sure that whatever you decide to do will be cool. I used to play a lot of Robben Ford.

Came back to more of a banjo focus.
Still like both blues and banjo. No need to limit one's musical interests. Have fun!

Thanks for the support guys! Banjo and blues have quite a bit in common too.
Robben Ford is a great "uptown" blues artist.

Ric, please let us know where we can hear what this journey's like for you. I can't wait to hear the country and electric blues players when they come out the other side of the Frailblazer!
BTW love the graphic. Cubist Blues--your album title. :)

Thanks Robert. I may post some blues noodling here on my blog page.
I love the artwork too and found it online. I have no idea who created it.

Hi Jim!!! All good here and hope the same for you. I'm really lovin' learning blues guitar (again) and I'm making good progress. It's so much fun to improvise completely on the fly in real-time. I will post something soon!
