You did capture a bit o' that loosey goosey slipin' slidin' keep on rubbin' slippery Charlie style in your playing. Charlie = King of Position Playing that doesn't sound the same ol' same ol'. ---------- The Iceman
Around 1990 when I was learning I mostly listened to Paul Butterfield, Charlie Musselwhite and the harp players on Muddy Waters LPs. I don´t know what loosey goosey means but he has a certain "lazy" style, especially when he plays 3rd pos that I like. But of course Harpin' On A Riff is totally different. And his solo on the INXS song Suicide Blonde is crazy, I never found out how he did that.

So what is the truth behind the Suicide Blonde story?
'I recorded three tunes with INXS. One tune was sampled and played through a keyboard by Andrew Ferriss. Nice guy. I was in Sydney on tour in Australia. Henri took a call in the hotel room. Who is this? INXS? I'd never heard of them.
Re: Suicide Blonde, and the ridiculous MTV Award Show circa 1989, where the exact harp track from the record is played in their "live" performance, the keyboard guy not even breathing in time with the harp as he fakes it. I generally liked INXS songs, but their posturing detracted from the overall appreciation. I saw Norton Buffalo a couple years before that at a Boulder club, and he played his "Echoes of the Last Stampede" using an early pedal delay/echo system that was amazing. Someone with that skill and gear could have likely done live what they did with Musselwhite's track, as the effect is more delay overlap, versus lightning quick notation. Norton was masterful at both, and he never played sloppy, only crisp and clear. RIP
