    We know Southern Rock, Texas Blues, Chicago Jazz, and Bakersfield Music. Tulsa sound is unique and kinda hard to define. Slow mellow guitar loaded rock, laid back with a steady beat. JJ Cale had it down, hell he may have invented it and passed it on to many, including Clapton, and Paul Benjaman. Vintage Guitar Mag did a interview with Benjaman, who's latest work is "Back to Paradise-a Tribute to Okie Music". Here's a classic, written by Cale, "Ride Me High".

    Got some Tulsa time, post up.
