Shawn Holt & The Teardrops

"Lil' Slim (Shawn Holt) is the son of recently deceased Chicago Blues stalwart Magic Slim (Morris Holt). Shawn "Lil Slim" Holt and The Teardrops play that old style of Chicago blues without all the special effects and pedals popular among many of today's young guitar players."

"Lil' Slim plays with just a thumb pick (similar to his dad's style of playing), plucking out most of his notes with his thumb and occasionally using his other fingers, but no flat pick, so he is able to get that tone that you just can't get any other way. This was blues played with a rich sound, easy on the ear, and with the occasional gale force bursts of speed when that thumb begins to fly across the strings. One journalist has called him the "fastest thumb in the West." -MN
