Another One

Another good performance at B. B. King's last September-- well edited, exuberant, with errant fingers, but great Rock and Roll.  A few days later he played Blueberry Hill, and properly warmed up, put on a show that seemed to take him 15 years back in terms of guitar virtuosity.  But what interests me about these later day performances on the guitar is the rhythm and the efficiency.  He doesn't play a lot of notes, but he hits them like a talking drum.
