Lonnie Johnson: Dropped-D
I was trading licks and stories with my dear friend and blues brother, Reverend Robert Jones of Detroit, at the Fox River Folk and Storytelling Festival in Geneva IL over Labor Day weekend. He asked about some Lonnie Johnson licks. We didn’t have time to really explore them together and I promised him a short video. Here it is.
