the dirty boogie

latin lupe lou
an imposing photo of H. looking very latino - advertising a top for the shop.
based as usual on a hurrell image(genius stuff, never get bored of admiring his photos), and given an extra noire edge, by using stark shadow... this was deliberate as i wanted it to be moody looking - i even went as far as darkening the shadow on the torso even more... the pose however is very flamenco, to match the top, and as a consequence of us both talking about some latino people we know recently...

another day another guitar book: guitar tech magazine, with free cd of blues licks(which is why i bought it).

although to be honest - i had no idea that the grim spectre of zwyngie malsteam still rears it's ugly fretworthy head... still, the magazine has a timely article on ike turner and plenty of blues tabs to learn.
all good - the blues lessons contained within will be added to what i already have around the "study" and will keep educating me in the art of the delta music.
and when i got home, i found my copy of "brian setzer - legendary guitar licks" had arrived.
i now have enough material to keep me going through the long, hot summer of 2009...
