Ken, here are videos that Max and Joey did for my BluesLoops project. I sent this to Scott years ago, but I don't know if he or Jimi ever saw it. It definitely hasn't been used yet. Jimi talked to me about Dunlop producing a branded line that could be used to generate donations to Blues Camp through our Blues Kids Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. I was now, sent to you.
Over the course of a year I see over 500 Blues Kids in my camps and over 10,000 students in public and private schools plus colleges and festivals in different parts of the world.
