Jeff Martin’s “The Black Snake Blues”

Jeff Martin’s – The Black Snake Blues

With the guitar on your knees you can bring some of the finest blues around. Texas bluesman Black Ace sho’ knew how to play the squire-necked guitar. He showed us that you can really bring the blues feelling to your audience this way. The Black Snake Blues performed by Jeff Martin is a song that has a similar thrill, it brings you back to the delta, and I try to imagine how this would sound on a lonesome porch or what melancholic place you would like.
