24. Yes, and he must have played most of his life....

to still be that nimble. I'm 71 and wanted to learn to play, but 'ole arthritis has held me back. I was raised up near Nashville and there was an old local saying that "there's 10,000 guitar pickers in Nashville" which probably was true, with a plentiful supply for the numerous studios, radio shows and Grand Ole Opry.

Ironically, in the area where I was raised, playing guitar was quite uncommon but playing piano in church was very common. Guitar playing was far more common in the mountains of east TN and KY, as well as in the western parts where cotton grows.

Fantastic 'ole player and thanks. He would be fun to sit on the porch with and pick and grin!....
