A Fist Full of Riffs - Catfish Keith $15.00

   Catfish lets his guitar do all the talking! String snapping toe tappers mix with down and dirty slide ditties to create a very timeless blues disc.
 
In the artist's words...
Alright! This new album, my eighth, is a departure for me, and in another way it’s like coming back home where I started. I’ve always loved fingerstyle guitar. Even before I knew you could play all of that guitar, by yourself, I just loved the sound. About three decades ago, before I started to sing and play, I was just a picker. I went nuts discovering all kinds of great American music, and then started to sing too. On this album, I’m just picking again (with the occasional grunt or gasp). Lots of blues and jazz string-twanging like in the opener, Fistful of Riffs based on Lonnie Johnson and Eddie Lang, a new version of the original Mr. Catfish’s Advice and kind of a fingerstyle version of a Hawaiian guitar piece, Kohala March. There’s open-tuned slide guitar on the Baritone National on Freckles, Hawaiian Cowboy, Dark Was the Night and Motherless Children. Love that Baritone! Some of the pieces have a Caribbean feel; Gonna Live That Life is adapted from Joseph Spence’s version. Down-Island Annie is a syncopated version of the old fiddle tune, Ragtime Annie. There’s some real finger-tanglers on here too like 12th St. Rag and the old New Orleans piece, High Society.
