Most all the years I spent as a performing artist, Leadbelly was my idol. I had a lovely Epiphone Bard 12-string guitar and a good enough voice to match my ear for being on pitch. Sold my axe when I stopped performing, left New England for the Navajo Nation, eventually Santa Fe. Music has been centered in my life since childhood. Thanks, mom.
Still have a 6-string stashed in the study. Yamaha. Take it down and think about being some kind of old-timer…once in a while.
