The Walking Blues

This song is one that made me want to play slide guitar.  In 1992 when I saw Eric Clapton perform this on MTV's Unplugged, that was it.  I went the next day to Cecil's Bandstand in Jackson, TN and, with some inheritance money, bought a dobro.  Unfortunatley, no one told me I was going to sound like two badgers f*%#@*!  That all changed a few weeks later when I was learning slide from Steve Patterson.  He told me exactly that.  Fortunately he also told me to work through it, and keep practicing.

I am glad I did, because this has become one of my favorite songs to play.  I hope you enjoy it, and I hope my wife and daughters enjoy it as well.
