This Old Hammer
'This Old Hammer' is the first solo recording of country blues I\'ve made since the mid-1970s. For this project, apart from my own tunes, I wanted to retain particular aspects of the songs that I was starting with, but always to be introducing different elements, as well--perhaps a new melody, different lyrics or a new harmonization, in addition to, in every instance, a different accompaniment. I treasure what I've learned from the many great musicians in this style, but I suppose I wanted to say things my own way on this go-round. John M. Miller.
