Leadbelly-I always likend Henry Townsend's Fishin'Blues as "Happy Blues". He played Quills or Panpipes and guitar together. How can you not be happy with a sound like that! Then of course there was songs by Barbeque Bob,Jesse "Lonecat" Fuller and Blind Willie McTell. All of them played 12 string Guitar. Ever try slide guitar on a 12 string? What a gas!!    Cheers-Dave
