    Ha, sounds like he had a great sense of humor. I’ll check him out. That blonde archtop looks amazing. Bet it plays and sounds great too.

    Yes it will be culture shock. We’re flying out soon to check it out and if we make the move it’ll be a 2 year trial stay to see if we like it. It’s very old South there. Thanks for the info on Pink Floyds name source. Never knew that. Now I have to check out some Floyd Council stuff. It’s an amazing time we live in that we have access to all this historical music. Alot of these guys could only be found in out of the way record stores 20 years ago.

    Is there a better resource than this for finding the good stuff to buy? Bluebeat looks pretty good. I’m mainly using Youtube to explore the 30s,40s and 50s music and regularly go to the Jump Blues Guitar Killers facebook site which is posted single songs. I want to get some full albums in my collection. I love anything that falls under the category of Swing, from Western swing and Django all the way into early Bebop. Mike

    Thanks for posting all the vids. I learned about Pink Anderson from Roy Bookbinder lessons years ago. I really like him. We’re considering a move to Sanford NC from Tucson at the end of the year. My girlfriend owns a house there. It’s a small town but Raleigh’s not that far and I understand there’s a good music scene there. Looking forward to checking checking it out.Mike

    This is a cool review and much appreciated. I’ve been a D’Addario nickel round user only because they come in 10 packs and are readily available. I’ll be checking out the top 3 on your list. I want to experiment with flatwounds on my Tele so may look at the Thomastik flatwounds in the future. Looking forward to your “on deck” reviews. Mike

    Great idea Tommy. This made my day. I struggle with learning this stuff. I’m self taught and all my Buds play classic rock stuff. I have a solo acoustic blues and ragtime background but just starting on electric swing/jump styles. I’m using a Gibson ES-135 and a MJT Tele with a TK Smith CC neck pickup and mainly play at home with a ZT Lunchbox amp (for now). I get about an hour a day to play so a forum will really be helpful to streamline learning. Thanks! Mike
