If you started following me more recently just wanted to say heyyy and also tell you a bit about me (in case you’re like who’s this rando i accidentally followed🤪) ! I started my insta when I was working another job and I have always wanted to be a full-time guitarist. I really wanted to do something that I could connect with other musicians who also felt like they needed reminders that they weren’t alone in their journey because going for music can be hard/ confusing/ scary sometimes. Connecting with you all has been absolutely amazing and I’m just super thankful to have met you all and am continually amazed anyone reads my blog or watches my videos. So thank you so so much. My dream is to be a touring guitarist and blogger (I’m not full time yet but i did quit my real job a bit back!). Right now i live in Nashville and am in multiple bands (and just started my own!), work with some awesome gear companies, and am bloggin away! I’m just really happy to get to be doing this. I hope you know how unique you are and how you can reach people though your music. Know that I’m with you as you are figuring things out! Would love to hear more about you below!! .

From our What-If Dept.: While I was researching Butterfield performances for "Guitar King: Michael Bloomfield's Life in the Blues," I came across this tantalizing mention of the group in a 1971 edition of "The Pony Express," the student newspaper of Sacramento City College. It was an announcement of the formation of a campus film club, and among the arty films to be shown was one called "East-West" with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. I immediately wondered if the movie might have been a student production, filmed at one of the band's California shows as they performed Bloomfield's famous opus. If such a film still existed in the college's archives, it would offer a fascinating glimpse of the PBBB – and Michael – at a critical time in their development. I managed to contact one of the school's librarians, and he kindly dug through their vast collection of uncatalogued movie reels from the period, but could find nothing that appeared to be the footage described in the article. I also contacted one of the student organizers of the film club, now in his late 60s, and he had no recollection of the Butterfield movie. The fact that the film's duration is listed as "14 min," the same length as the album version of "East-West," suggests that the film might have simply been a collage of "psychedelic" images set to the commercial release of the tune. But ... what if the movie actually showed the band wailing on Michael's mash-up of musical genres? Anybody out there in Sacramento willing to look into the possibility?
