My All-time favorite men who ever picked up a guitar.

Son House & Skip James…

Skip James was unique among Blues players in that he tuned his guitar to an open Dm. Most that used an open tuning for slide work used an open G major or E major (such as myself). He was a very creative and inovative musician. He often sang in a high falsetto voice and that combined with his prediliction for minor keys gave his music a very destinctive sound. And ihafta mention his finger picking style. Which was almost classical in nature.
And Son House! Whata man! Whata musucian!

How Solemn As One By One

By Walt Whitman


How solemn, as one by one,
As the ranks returning, all worn and sweaty—as the men file by where I stand;
As the faces, the masks appear—as I glance at the faces, studying the masks;
(As I glance upward out of this page, studying you, dear friend, whoever you are;)
How solemn the thought of my whispering soul, to each in the ranks, and to you;
I see behind each mask, that wonder, a kindred soul;
O the bullet could never kill what you really are, dear friend,
Nor the bayonet stab what you really are:
The soul! yourself I see, great as any, good as the best,
Waiting, secure and content, which the bullet could never kill,
Nor the bayonet stab, O friend!
