Hi all my PW friends,

I thought maybe this little YouTube video clip might get everyone in the “Bluesy” Christmas spirit.

Take care,

Rick

Rickster - nice effort on a great old blusey Christmas tune that actually goes back farther than Elvis - to the 1940s I think, and which has been covered by a lot of real Blues artists since.

Rickster,
I don't know which is better, enjoying your music or watching you enjoy your music. Either way it is appreciated! Thank you. Have a Merry Christmas and a very happy, productive New Year!!!
Woody

Thanks for the compliments, my fine piano friends. I know I’m not that good at playing the piano, but its fun to play what little I know \:\) .

And, Woody, yes, I have entertained myself a great deal with my music over the years. Glad you enjoyed it too. \:\)

And, Rocket88, I couldn't ask for a nicer compliment coming from a pro like you! Thanks, man! \:\)

I still seem to hold back a lot at the piano and not let myself go like I would like to. But now I see why Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder, and others rock back and forth at the piano. When it sounds good you got to move \:D .

Take care,

Rick
