Normally on a Sunday morning I'd be cramming on some oldtime tunes in anticipation of attending a great oldtime jam that I like to go to on Sunday afternoons. I took a break from that today to sleep in! Now I think we'll go do a walking tour of Fredericksburg, a city about 40 miles to the north. Maybe go to a book store and stop in a brewery up there.
Before I leave, I wanted to post this video
of Norman Blake playing Whiskey Before Breakfast in the key of E-flat on guitar. Norman has long been my favorite guitar flatpicker and one of my favorite mandolin players too! Some would say his music is not oldtime. I don't want to get in on that debate. It sounds old timey enough to me!
As I type this it just passed from morning 'til noon, but there's still some time for a little Whiskey Before Breakfast, right? Cheers.
Oh snap...it won't let me embed the video. Here's a link anyways: http://youtu.be/sYau7QfiiuM
