Hey all. I was in here looking around and thought I'd tell you, if anyone is interested, that I recently ordered a Hot Rod Old Skool 12 with the vitage finish. You might recall that this resonator guitar was featrued in AG in 2013. I loved the review and have been looking for a decent resonator to replace the Regal I now have. I'm looking forward to the Old Skool 12 - should be here any day now.

Take care - m

Interesting but I think he puts more importance on lynching than on slavery as the gensis of blues and the true meaning of "Hellhound on my trail." He also misinterprets the rising wind and rustling leaves of a tree as a reference to lynching. Nope. Without going into too much detail, it means movement, spirituality, mystery. Or as my people used to say, "Skan taku skan, skan."
Much deeper meanings than the superficial, false remorse of lynching...
RIP, Robert.
