thanks to Matt for recording these under very difficult circumstances...(recording wise)...still, he got good sound...and gave us a time to remember just how good Thumbie was.....and thanks to Terry and Sam...I'm forever grateful.....Virginia
Long live Thumbs! I am working with David Corcoran right now who actually dedicated his Downforce Guitar Methods book to Thumbs! Everyone can learn to play in this method easier!http://DownforceGuitar.com Thanks,Mr. D. Gardner
I was lucky enough to play bass with Thumbs in Chattanooga for a few months in the mid eighties. I had trouble concentrating on my playing due to always watching him play. Truly amazing. A great experince in my life's musical journey.
Shortly after he moved to Atlanta, I had the pleasure to play bass with Thumbs in Decatur at a club that had a name related to the railroad (Depot?).He was not only an outstanding player but a beautiful human being. His daughter Kathy was also a great blues singer if I remember correctly. I wonder if she is still singing! phil morrison http://philtrio.blogspot.com www.myspace.com/worldunityjazzensemble www.myspace.com/starkrealitysunday
