You are right about Ronnie Earl; one of the most polished, effortless, versatile blues guitarists I've ever heard play. The fact that he doesn't get more attention is almost criminal.

Jimmy is nothing without Stevie. Not much original talent. Just copies riffs and capo's when he can't reach them. Elder yes, statesman of the blues, not so much.


The Texas Flood video sounds cool, but two things I notice. One is that it is very repetitive. Maybe it's supposed to be. Two is that his fingers are flying everywhere. It doesn't seem very efficient. But he's better than me, so I guess that says something.
