: I agree with what's been said, but in the case
: of Blake I think additionally he uses a lot
: of stereotypical piano licks. For instance
: in the boogie woogie beginning of the solo in
: Police Dog Blues that follows the line
: "she didn't like my kind." Or that
: phenomenal little figure in Seaboard Stomp at
: about 2:26.
: I think maybe he did a bit of good-natured
: championing of guitar vs. piano, for instance
: again in Seaboard Stomp where he refers to
: the "piano shah" as
: I remember seeing an old ad for Blake on the
: web which emphasises his "piano sounding
: guitar." I noticed the other day that
: in the famous photograph of him, he is
: sitting on a piano bench. I like to think
: that was an intentional comment and not just
: what the photographer happened to have on
: Peace out.
