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.
