Per his instructions, you listen.

"Albums to listen to:
Too Bad Jim by R.L. Burnside- changed my life and includes most of his staples. An electric album but we will play the acoustic versions of these songs the same way he played them electrically...too much?

All Night Long by Junior Kimbrough- changed my life and will immediately slap her into the dirtiest, sexiest, funkiest and musically wrong/perfectly right version of the Mississippi Hill Country Blues. (She could listen to Juniors off key and powerful voice phrasings and make it her own)

Possible songs:
1. Poor Black Mattie- R.L. (Key of G)
2. Goin Down South- R.L. (Key of G)
3. *The Thrill is Gone- (BB King version in the key of B..she could def do this if she sings Etta James)
4. Red House- Jimi Hendrix (I will sing in the key of A but she could also probably sing this)
5. I Feel Alright- Junior Kimbrough (Connor will sing. Very powerful song. She may be able to chime in on this one too)
6. Skinny Woman- R.L. (She may not be in on this one)
7. Probably do an instrumental here so Connor and Garry can show off their chops. She could improvise
8. Peaches (or Mellow Peaches)- R.L.
9. Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)- Jimi Hendrix
10. Have Garry do one of his originals
11. We do one of our originals
12. See what happens

And so on and so forth...I'm sure this will shift and change but the above is a good representation of what she can expect
