      That's a good point. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for sharing that
story with us.
      In answer to Santi Vernetti on a note admittedly not film
related I might add that if only you could learn to play the guitar
you could learn to play the blues. Once done you could learn to play
the blues in a blues band. And if that doesn't work and if you are
really stuck I suppose there's always the steam laundry!
      That's what Lightnin' Slim* did. Lightnin' Slim worked for the
steam laundry. The steam was hard on his hands. Lightnin' Slim didn't
have much in the way of luck though. If it wasn't for bad luck he
wouldn't have had no luck at all. You'll have better luck than him. I
just know it.
