This is the first in a bi-weekly post about our favourite Youtube pages and videos, the first Youtuber choosen is the stupidly tallented Blues mulit-instrumentalist DaddyStovepipe. I've been following him for some time (not in a sexual preditor sort of way) and really want to show you some of his stuff, I found him while searching for some ukulele blues lessons.
DaddyStovepipe writes about his musical life on his profile "I started playing fingerstyle music when I was 16 years old in 1971. I had discovered acoustic blues two years before that when I heard Big Bill Broonzy play St Louis Blues on the radio."
"I'm completely selftaught apart from a friend showing me a few chords and how to tune a guitar (thanks Jan). I learned mainly by listening to recordings. I mostly play country blues from "the 78rpm" era but I also like contemporary artists like John James or Leo Kottke. Sometimes, when I get bored playing the guitar, I like to dabble with Native American or Indian flutes, a mandolin, a ukulele or a Chinese guqin."
I hope that's wetted your appitite for some great playing, here's some of his best Youtube Clips.
