    Love the guy, one of my favorite blues artist's. My band from a few years back accused me of trying to turn the band into a Tab Benoit tribute band! Would love to see him live.

    I like him a lot. He's very good at doing that thing where he plays the melody on his guitar in unison with his voice.

    There's a YouTube video of him (sorry can't link right now) of him doing a live version of "Standing on the Bank". Just him and his Telecaster. It is superb.

    Didn't know much about him. Saw him a couple of years ago on a friend's recommendation, he was great.

    I like some of his stuff. Say him maybe 20 years ago in a small club. Good southern style stuff. We do this one, but the Muldaur version:

    The Muldaur version has a different turnaround. What note do you hear on the end of the turnaround? F or E?

    Yep in fact I was just listening to his Nice and Warm Album (CD).
    I have loved the title track since hearing Jonny Lang do it.

    Great Cajun style Blues ! about as swampy as a big ol Alligator and tasty as a shrimp boil !

    Superb player and environmental advocate for the wetlands. One of my top favorites!
    And that worn-in Thinline that looks like it's been dragged through the swamp and marinated in a bayou... just wicked cool.

    His tech has been begging him to buy some new guitars for years but he wont do it!

    His main axe (The thinline) has extra screws and glue and God knows what else holding it together and is expected to simply fall apart every time he pulls it out.

    Here's an example of what I was talking about. It's from an album he did with Debbie Davies.

    Great player. I've got the Whiskey Store CD: Tab and Jimmy Thackery with various others. Bad blues!
