    I think it's James Cotton.

    Who is the left-handed guitar player?

    Muddy adapted the song, which was originally written and recorded by Red Foster......

    How do you spell that word?

    "Woorik" or "werick"?

    Thanks, johnny k, for posting that - I was really in the mood to hear Mojo!!!

    Blue, blue, the guitar was blue.** I remember the racing stripe :)

    Carey Bell, harmonica, with Pee Wee Madison iirc Pee Wee takes the solo on James Cotton's recording of "Sweet Sixteen"

    ** for historical ambiguity as to the guitar in this b&w photo, see posts #9 and #11 :)

    I think his Competition Mustang was red, or at least it looks that way in this video:

    This takes me right to my first real blues band ( I joined into an already gigging band, that lost a guitar player...) we played this song- way too hyper, and loud!

    There were 5 of us- 2 guitars, harp, bass, drums.
    We all took turns singing lead vocals, and each lead player ( harp, guitars) soloed on EVERY song! It was too much, too loud! I guess folks dug it ( volume/energy) but it got old after a while

    srblue5 - You are correct - at 30:45 in the Muddy Waters in Concert video* - red guitar!

    I cling to the hope that I will find a photo of Pee Wee Madison playing a blue one with stripe :) iirc a photo from an album jacket.
