Now and tomorrow. Here and gone. The fragile state of exist. And so far I suck at playing Robert Johnson, so doodling.

Thank you Brother3string, I appreciate that! It’s pushing myself to play a style or rythem patterns like Robert Johnson, that’s so out of my ballpark,  that helps me come up with these ideas. In this case, I was trying so absolutely unsuccessfully  after a couple of hours, out of frustration and need for a break, I came up with this in a couple of hours. I’ve had the earthquake videos for some time, just didn’t have the right vehicle to drive them home. Boom bang, that’s how my disjointed left side of my brain deals with  the rather illogical side of my right side. Now the way things generally goes now, I’ll go back to that beloved Robert Johnson song and play it completely different and have him spinning in his grave, and say I played a RJ song ha! Thanks Brother, your comments inspired me!

You just stay away from the Robert Johnson tunes, and keep creating more of these... This was great. Nice playing and video work, Richard.

I’m in agreement Derek about earthquakes! I was stationed in Sacramento and my first experience was at work. The shelves started moving back and forth a few inches on the floor. Of course not knowing what an earthquake felt like, I was trying to analyze the situation.  These were tall metal shelves with metal parts stored on them. A guy from the bench yelled earthquake, I instantly went from investigator to freaked out! It’s unlike anything, you just freeze! Thank you D, appreciate it that very much!

Excellent Richard! This has a great vibe and stride. The big open sound is super. Tasteful licks! I remember the little earthquakes when I was little and we were still in California - they terrified me.

Yes Sir, Jim! I watch the series Supernatural, no crossroads dealings for me ha! Guess I’ll have to do it the hard way.......find someone around here that plays great RJ, then put my name on it .......I think that might be crossroads dealings. Back to the drawing board, or as Andries says, play like your chopping wood. Thanks Jim!

Yup Richard but don't go down to the crossroads.It's a hell of a deal.
