    Mean Town Blues was the first electric blues riff I learnt from a teacher I had when I was about 13.. He was a JW freak!
    Partly the reason I have a Firebird these days...

    Johnny Winter might be my favorite, not sure why. Saw Sonny Landreth recently - he was pretty amazing. Jason Isbell does a good job the song.

    Thumbs Carllile. But he didn't use a slide.

    Certainly not me, never have been able to get a decent sound, or wanted to commit to a 'proper set up'!
