    I was at my parents house and they were watching Steve Harvey on Little Big Shots. There was this blues guitarist - 78 years old - that was plugging away doing a good blues number and I noticed two things: 1: Beverly, the lead guitarist, is playing a Squier Strat, and 2: the bass player is playing some kind of 5 string Warlock.

    The bass player caught my attention first because I was like "I've never seen someone play a Warlock in anything other than a rock band." But the bass sounded smooth as hell - not what I would typically assume of a Warlock bass.

    Just wanted to share,. Here's a link to the vid:

    That's Beverly Watkins, an Atlanta blues legend. She's been playing around here for over 50 years!
