Re: [Harp-L] plagarism

Does that mean every time I do a third-string bend up to the 2nd string and
then high E at the nut of my strat, I am plagiarizing Clapton?  Or when I
double-string bend 2nd and 3rd strings at the 8th and 9th frets, I'm
plagiarizing Chuck Berry?


I was unaware that Little Walter and Sonny Boy had copyrighted their riffs.

Believe in Magic!
