Thread Name: Lead Belly's autograph
Subject: RE: Lead Belly's autograph
Reminds me of the story of a well known old time fiddle player from back in the thirties. Even after his death people would make the trek up to his home place to pay homage. Whenever a visitor asked if his widow had his old fiddle in her posession she always brought it out to show them. When asked if she would consider selling it she usually agreed after a little negotiation on price. It would surprise you how just how many fiddles the guy had owned.

Just a word of warning
