Diggin’: Alabama Slim – I Love My Guitar

inDiggin'on July 14, 2016


Alabama Slim plays Deep Blues. Originally from Vance, AL but Slim has lived in New Orleans since the late 60s. Standing tall at around 6’7″ and always wearing a pinstripe suit, Slim’s guitar style is influenced by his slender build. Sparse lead guitar on top of a walking bass line sets the tone for I Love My Guitar. The tune is about the love a musician can have for one’s instrument and the need to play. This need is so great that Alabama Slim warns women not to get too caught up their relationship because he can really only love one thing – his guitar.
