Some of you may have heard of Straight-Up Willie, the pickingest banjo man ever to be run out of Chatahootchee on a rail...

"Step-Daddy of the blues", holy shit that's funny. This is you ba? Very cool. Made me smile!

I used to know some blue-grass guys from PA who played stuff like this. Cool little gee-tar song, thanks!

I "wrote" and "sang" it, while Nicholas Markos played guitar. Obviously a one mic/one take affair. The intro invoked two members of our imaginary blues and folk pantheon, and was somewhat inspired by Bill Monroe. I saw him at the C&W Festival in Chicago, and he introduced every single song with a variation on "This next song is very good. I like it. I hope you like it too." Which makes so much more sense than most introductions.
