Happy Birthday Mississippi Fred McDowell

Postby MooseMoore » Sat Jan 12, 2013 5:23 pm

In celebration of the life and music of a Delta
Blues guitar master and one of the greatest and most influential
slide guitar players who ever walked this earth.

Whether it be the mastery of his instrument or the heart,
soul and passion that pours through every note he sings and plays,
Fred is simply amazing.

Almost two hours of Live Video and Music of McDowell in his honor

"I made up a lot of the songs I sing. It's like you hear a record or something or other. Well, you pick out some words out of that record that you like. You sing that and add something else onto it. It's just like if you're going to pray, and mean it, things will be in your mind. As fast as you get one word out, something else will come in there. Songs should tell the truth... When I play-- if you pay attention, what I sing the guitar sings, too. And what the guitar say, I say." - Fred McDowell
