12-string blues--crazy idea?

Post  pinhedz on Tue Dec 06, 2011 11:10 pm

Who started it? Blind Lemon Jefferson? Sometimes a bluesman needs a bigger boom in those rowdy joints with no mics.

Or was it Lonnie Johnson?

So how about the intro on this number--thumping away in the lower register of the 12-string.

Sound familiar?

Which in turn inspired Glen Campbell to get a 12-string--thereby leading to this: http://acrosstheuniverse.forummotion.com/t1289-the-folkswingers

I would link to the Dave Ray thread if there was one (which there isn't, due to the lack of Dave Ray videos on the Web Neutral ):
