Have you ever thought you played like your all thumbs?


Recommended Posts

Yeah, Thumbs was great!  Remember first seeing him on the old Roger Miler "summer replacement"(remember those?) show in the mid '60's.  

And add blindness into the mix, and you get this also amazing player!

Thumbs  didn't like his nickname,  Ken was his actual name,  he released a album around 1970 or so, that Miller financed. was sort of Tower of Power crossed with Chicken Pickin

Every g@wd d@mn day!

[omg] ALL your thumbs?   How many do you have, anyway?  [confused]

I only play like my LEFT hand thumb, which only plays when my right thumb gets tired.  [wink]

I use my right hand thumb a lot for picking.  I use the left one for fretting the low bass strings.  Beyond that, my playing really is “all thumbs.”

Yep really me too. I couldn't play with them, LOL.

I get the "all thumbs" thing.  I'm that way when doing any handyman work 'round the house.   Two right hands, all thumbs.  [wink]( I say two right hands because I'm left handed.)

Plus I wind up doing the work of two men!  Unfortunately, those two men are LAUREL and HARDY!  [laugh]
