    Funky bass intro; funk guitar lead; funk-R&B vocal; great funky drums & organ. Cool key change. Slick musicianship. This is not Blues but it's good pop dance music.

    Who knew? It's a Willie Dixon tune first recorded by Muddy.

    Oh, yeah...you got them hot licks, Slideman. One of my personal favorite tunes. Really good job. What guitar are you playing in the photo?

    And I'd agree "this one's probably folk". I'm an advocate for folk music (and tend to avoid labeling most acoustic singer-songwriter music as folk). To me, folk is music in the oral tradition, not written or recorded. Blind Lemon and Robert Johnson were playing folk music when recording and writing music were just becoming popular. Even though Blues was first written and recorded earlier in the century, the first generations of recorded Blues musicians we're aware of were folk musicians. IMHO...

    The guitar on "If I Had Possession" is a National Tricone.
