T Model Ford

Click to Play He's 82 years old.  When we approached the house his wife immedietly got up and went into the house to get him up.  I joked, "Are there a lot of northern white folk that come randomly stopping by?"  She laughed and confirmed. T-model was laying in bed and his eyes widened at the sight of two young white kids stopping by his bedroom.  In his southern drawl he uttered, "Hey, you wanna play?"   "No, I don't play." I said.  "Dja want me to play fo ya?""Sure if you don't mind.""Grab that gitar case and ampifier, and I'll play for ya.  Jus let me get my pants on." I didn't even have to twist his arm.  He played for an hour.  Often playing the same songs over and over - here is edited footage of one song that he did twice, I edited the 2 versions together.  Sometimes mixing the songs together, sometimes having the one version standing on it's own.
