When I lived in Mobile AL back in the 70's we listened to an excellent radio station, WABB FM. They played such an amazing mix of music that I was probably 15 years old before I realized some people differentiated between blues and rock.. WABB played "regular" stuff like Beatles, Stones, Moody Blues, Allman Brothers mixed with Taj Mahal, BB King, JJ Cale, Bobby Bland, etc.
When I moved to New Mexico in 1976 the first bunch of people I met were musicians, several of who formed a band. They played a lot of Grateful Dead covers, but also a lot of music that was somewhat new to me.

Corky I do like that classical gutairist
Thank you I think I forgot his name (it's been years)

I remember finding the evens on myspace by chance
Fugazi ( Ian MacKaye ) more mellow stuff
I added a bunch of bands I liked so Okay to look through
I liked the Kramus band with Matt Ledford used to Jam(bass guitar) to that one a lot
I Play Guitar too but I liked jamming to bass with the evens as well
Lucid Fly was good


Finally Riding my bicycle in Chicago I one day stopped in a music store and saw these two Cd's
was so happy

Shelter Two
Cut from the cloth


Corky You might like this as well
Tools Singer band Perfect Circle
Album
Thirteen step



Speaking of that Classical player
I just bought a Claasical Guitar ($2000) didn't pay that much
I finger pick (not supper fast, and bland ) a lot of technique (tonal)

got to go, but I like a cheap guitar more then the $2000 classical
not the style I play (haven't learned ) all technique I made up is lost on classical.
(that of coarse takes years for me to play to come up with my techniques)

(edit Oh Will check those out when I have more time
I Remember Eric Clapton doing a lot of covers by that artist just listened to him JJ Cale)

I like The Evens, I'd never even heard of them but that's a great sound. My daughter and her boyfriend are huge Tool/A perfect Circle fans. We listen to a lot of that while we're visiting them in Phoenix.

Several friends and I took a year off college and worked on the drilling rigs in Hobbs New Mexico in 78/79. I went from a dead broke college student to bringing home $800-100 every 2 weeks. With my first paycheck I went down to the local record store and a really good looking, young(married) clerk took one look at me and suggested 2 new artists: Dire Straits and George Thorogood. I bought their first albums that day and have been hooked on them ever since.

What an amazing and unique sound.
