Really fine piece here. Eric Clapton likes Doyle Bramhall II (his father passed away recently who was also a noted guitarist and drummer). I brought up his work at Austin City Limits one evening, and his guitar work is splendid. I am partial to the use of slides and his slide work towards the end of “I’m Leaving” is outstanding. Bramhall’s voice is relatively low-key in projection, just enough force to make the lyrics truthful. He is a left-handed guitarist. His slide appears to me the Keb Mo slide. I purchased mine down in Fredericksburg and it is superior to glass slides. Doyle Bramhall II: here he is.

In the same evening, at Austin City Limits, here is Bramhall II with “Shape I’m In.”
