Because this is a blog about myself and the things I like to do, I figured it would be appropriate to explain where I come from. My parental units, Larry and Myra Puckett are very creative people. My Mom is a quilter and always has been as long as I can remember. She has always made me smaller quilts, “Wall Hangings” if you will, of different subjects that I have loved over the years…baseball, fishing, music, etc. Mom is an artist, her canvas being fabric.
Larry Puckett is a musician, always has been and always will be. He just released an album on CD Baby, Evolution Blues, a collection of songs that he has written over the years, and it turned out very good. The music that he delivers that I am most impressed by his ability to play Flamenco, spanish style guitar. He was mostly into this kind of playing as I was growing up and I think really seeped into my music intrigue the most. The rhythms are incredible and I know has definitely had an influence in my rhythm guitar playing. I have included a track of Dr. Lawrence Puckett playing some Flamenco…hope you enjoy it.
Out of the both of them, I most impressed by the fact they can be so creative but also as organized as my Mom is and has scientific as my Dad is. My mother keeps everything organized to the smallest detail and Dad was a High School and College Chemistry Professor in Dallas, TX. I really inherited minimal organization skills and hardly any math and science ability. Maybe I will learn someday!
Here is some Larry “Gypsy” Puckett for ya.
