The Friday Mystery Box

We conclude our Friday Mystery preview of the year's T Bone Walker Blues Festival with Eric Gales.  Eric grew up in a musically talented family. Gales picked up the guitar at age four. His older siblings, Eugene and Manuel, taught him many songs and licks at a young age, in the styles of  Hendrix and classic bluesmen. In 1985, the Eric began playing at blues competitions with his brother Eugene backing him. Although Gales plays a right-handed guitar "upside-down" (with the E-bass string on the bottom), he is not naturally left-handed; he was taught by his brother who is left-handed...
