Crossroad Blues

I was 14 when Matt Harris told me to watch "Crossroads."  No, it wasn't the Britney Spears movie, it was the Ralph Macchio one.  The story of a young man who loved the blues, and went in search of Robert Johnson's lost song.  When I heard "crossroad blues," that was the beginning and the end.  The beginning of a life long love of the blues, and quest to learn it.  The end of searching for a sound that moves me, and that I love.  The slide guitar just resonates with my soul; anytime I hear it I have to stop and listen.  It is the music, and rhythm of my life.

So, I have wanted to play the crossroad blues for quite a while.  Well, today is the day.  I hope you enjoy.
