Mitch Laddie & Gary Grainger at The Blues Show – video

Mitch Laddie has been playing Raw Guitars‘ the Prowler and working with Simon Raw on the development of the guitar, which features great pickups by Bob G. Harrison.

Mitch and Simon came into The Blues Show studio to talk about future developments and for Mitch to give a demonstration of the guitar. After Mitch played some tasty slide riffs to show the great sound of the guitar, we though it might be useful to hear how The Prowler sounded in the context of some proper songs.

Well, given that we hadn’t rehearsed at all, this is as proper as the songs got!

I’ve had to just put the video link here as the embed function seems to be bjorked.

Howlin’ Mat – Late In The Evening Blues

I’ve had to just put the link to the video as the embed function seems to be broken at the minute

Here’s Howlin Mat from his recent Blues Show session, playing his home made cigar box guitar – with a tobacco tin as a floating bridge, which also acts as a kind of resonator.

There’s more from this great session at my YouTube Channel.
