Let Me Introduce y'all to My Young Friend . . .

Y'all may or may not know it but the Kay loves the blues -- a music genre which -- like jazz -- is distinctly American. I tripped across this young artist while surfing YouTube a few months ago and was amazed to discover that he was using the late, great Albert King's "upside down/backwards" style as a left-handed guitarist using a right- handed guitar. King influenced many of the great rock guitarists from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughn. My young friend calls himself bluesy13 and it is a good name for him as he produces some awesome blues sounds which I am proud to share with y'all. 

And if you like this one, he has a bunch more and the quality is maintained on all of them -- impressive, no? I have communicated with him on several occasions and can tell you that he is a really lovely young man with a good heart, a good mind and a wonderful ambition with the determination to make it come true. His stylings on his guitar have given me more than a few smiles. And, oh yeah, he respects his elders -- always impressive to those of us of a certain age and probably makes his mama proud. I hope you enjoy him as much as I do!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!


P.S. I'm not writing much the next couple days -- the holidays do intrude. 


  1. Kay, he's wonderful. He must be an old, old soul in that young man's body. I love the blues too! Merry Christmas!

  2. Kay, it has been a joy to discover you this year. I am hopeful to find high speed access this year so I can open videos and comment more often on blogs. Your messages are always so insightful. Merry, Merry, Happy, Happy, Ho, Ho, Ho......See you again in 2008!

  3. Thanks! It was a tremendous pleasure for me to crank up the volume on my speakers and let-r-rip.

    I love me some Blues too. I try to play a little on my harmonica from time to time.

  4. That's the beauty of YouTube. People get to see talent that would be otherwise overlooked. Thanks, Kay.

    And have a lovely holiday!

  5. Glad y'all enjoyed him as much as I do!!!! I wish him great success with his gift!!
