We “fall in love” all the time, which really means that we can project our mother-longing or father-longing onto almost anyone: a therapist, celebrity, sports hero, professor or teacher, boss. This article (link in bio) goes into depth about how to understand this highly common and grossly misunderstood experience of transference, and also offers specific guidelines for how to work with it effectively and responsibly when it arises. *
*
*

From the end of the article: The unassailable truth that needs to be placed forefront in the excavation process is that a crush stirs up longing like dust that has settled at the bottom of the soul, and that contained in this dust is an invitation to turn toward ourselves, to pull back the projections and seek an experience of wholeness in the company of our own being. When we become adept in the language of longing, we may even begin to find rapture in the longing itself. This, in itself, allows us to taste our own wholeness, if only for a moment. And that’s what we’re all seeking: to bathe body and soul in the gold-dust that carries the whispers of our own awakening. *

Nehemiah “Skip” James’s (June 9, 1902-Oct 3, 1969) music earned him a reputation as one of the great early Mississippi bluesmen. He grew up at the Woodbine Plantation where he developed his musical abilities. He later became a minister, but returned to performing blues during the 1960s “blues revival.” The music of Skip James & fellow Bentonia guitarists such as Henry Stuckey & Jack Owens is often characterized as a genre unto itself. The distinctive approach is notable for its ethereal sounds, open minor guitar tunings, gloomy themes, falsetto vocals, & songs that bemoan the work of the devil. Stuckey learned one of the tunings from Caribbean soldiers while serving in France during WWI, & said that he taught it to Skip setting him up for fame. Inspired by Stuckey, he began playing guitar as a child, & later learned to play organ. In his teens he began working on construction & logging projects across the mid-South, & sharpened his piano skills playing at work camp barrelhouses. In 1924 he returned to Bentonia, where he earned his living as a sharecropper, gambler &  bootlegger, in addition to performing locally with Stuckey. Later he traveled to Wisconsin for his historic 1931 session with Paramount Records. “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues” alluded to the Great Depression, while the gun-themed “22-20 Blues” provided the model for Robert Johnson's “32-20 Blues,” & the haunting “Devil Got My Woman” was the likely inspiration for Johnson's “Hell Hound on My Trail.” His records sold poorly, so later in 1931 he moved to Dallas, TX where he served as a minister & led a gospel group. He later stayed in Birmingham, AL then Hattiesburg, MS & Meridian, MS, occasionally returning to Bentonia. He later lived in Memphis, TN & Tunica, MS where he was located in a hospital in 1964 by blues enthusiasts who persuaded him to begin performing again. He relocated to Philadelphia where he later died.

Had such a blast sitting in with @erichughesband tonight @rumboogiecafe on Beale Street after our show! Sang “That’s Alright,” in honor of my session (with Eric) at Sun Studio on Monday, and also “Love in Vain,” by Robert Johnson via The Rolling Stones. The club asked me to sign a guitar, much to my delight and disbelief; all in all a very special night in Memphis!! .

Tommy Johnson (1896-November 1,1956) was a pioneer in Mississippi blues whose songs and distinctive falsetto moan were adopted by many of his contemporaries and followers. He was born in 1896 on a plantation between Crystal Springs and Terry and was one of eleven children. Johnson learned to play guitar from his older brother LeDell (1892–1972) and as a young teen ran away to the Delta. He returned two years later an accomplished performer, which, according to LeDell, Johnson attributed to a meeting with a mysterious figure at a crossroads. The story, which involved Johnson handing over his guitar to a large black man who tuned it for him, predates the similar and more famous tale of the (unrelated) bluesman Robert Johnson (1911-1938) selling his soul to the devil at the crossroads.
In 1916 Johnson moved back to the Delta with LeDell and their wives, settling on a plantation in Drew. There Johnson renewed his ties with local bluesmen who had influenced him on his earlier visit, notably Charley Patton, Willie Brown, and Dick Bankston. After a year in Drew, Johnson traveled for several years and upon returning to Crystal Springs played music locally with LeDell and their younger brothers Clarence (1904–1945) and Mager (1905–1986). Johnson’s brothers lived relatively settled lives—LeDell became a preacher—but Tommy continued to travel extensively, playing in the Delta with Charley Patton and working regularly at parties and dances in Jackson with Rubin Lacy, Charlie McCoy, Walter Vinson, and Ishmon Bracey. Johnson’s recordings for the Victor and Paramount labels from 1928 to 1930 included “Canned Heat Blues,” “Big Road Blues,” “Maggie Campbell Blues,” “Bye Bye Blues,” “Big Fat Mama Blues,” and “Cool Drink of Water Blues,” which contains the memorable line “I asked for water, and she gave me gasoline.” In addition to his solo performances, he recorded with the New Orleans-based jazz group the Nehi Boys.
He is buried in the Warm Springs Methodist Church cemetery. #blues #deltablues #bluestrail #chicagoblues #bluesguitar #howlinwolf #robertjohnson #dockeryplantation

Some chicken pickin in E Major.  This is the default gospel blues song I play when I pick up the guitar.  It is more major in tonality than delta blues. 
The camera is on my face and my right hand, so you can see my fingers picking the strings.  It is simple music but not easy to play, it takes skill as a musician. 
I hope to make music a regular side gig in addition to graphic design, cooking, and swimming. 
This summer won't be wasted.

I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees. Asked the Lord for mercy, "Save me if you please". || Eu desci até a encruzilhada e cai de joelhos. Pedi misericórdia ao senhor, "salve-me se for de seu agrado". (1937 ; JOHNSON, robert)

The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. Many lost their homes, jobs, and lives due to this. Around the same time, the "Delta Blues" music was born. Very little is known about the originator of this new sound, except one legend, that a young man sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads in return to be a god on the guitar. Shortly after that, the young man died, broke and unknown. But before he passed on, he produced two tracks that went on to inspire many generations of musicians. If you want to know what happened at the crossroads that day, read on.

Had such a blast sitting in with @erichughesband tonight @rumboogiecafe on Beale Street after our show! Sang “That’s Alright,” in honor of my session (with Eric) at Sun Studio on Monday, and also “Love in Vain,” by Robert Johnson via The Rolling Stones. The club asked me to sign a guitar, much to my delight and disbelief; all in all a very special night in Memphis!! .

BB King Performing “Blues Boys Tune” Clip Stolen From My Good Friend @twentiethcenturyblues The seeds of Riley B. King's enduring talent were sown deep in the blues-rich Mississippi Delta, where he was born in 1925 near the town of Itta Bena. He was shuttled between his mother's home and his grandmother's residence as a child, his father having left the family when King was very young. The youth put in long days working as a sharecropper and devoutly sang the Lord's praises at church before moving to Indianola -- another town located in the heart of the Delta -- in 1943.

Today is the 108th anniversary of Robert Johnson’s birth 🙏🏽 The greatest lie that’s ever been told is that a man has the right to sell his soul. Give this man some credit on his born day anniversary for a talent that bears fruit for over a century ✨✨✨
