Jim I Obit: Davey Graham (1940-2008) (62* d) RE: Obit: Davey Graham R.I.P. (15 Dec 2008) 16 Dec 08

Late night coffee bar in Edinburgh, late 1960's, Edinburgh Festival time. Me with my three chords struggling with trying to learn how to fingerpick. Mysterious stranger in corner finishes coffee and walks over with beermat."Here" he says, "try this" before disappearing into the night.

'This' was a note scribbled on beermat, a half dozen lines demonstrating 2 clawhammer styles. A friend, open-mouthed, said "That was Davey Graham!"

I've never looked back and always been immensely grateful.

So, Thanks Davey; I for one will never forget.
