On the 'tube

Nokie is Still kicking ass

Nokie is a cool guy and about as smooth as they come on guitar. I love his arrangement of I Got A Woman. Here is an electric version from 2009. Notice that Nokie uses no effects. He just plugs into the amp. No reverb or nuthin'.

I'm impressed when guys make it look so easy.

And it's only about 55 years since I spent my pocket money on Ram Bunk Shush.

Nokie's a sweet guy, and the only person I know who mumbles worse than I do.

Judy's a sweetheart too and takes good care of him.

Judy is the best. That's certainly the truth, Billy. Nokie will be 80 this year and they will be out on the road, once again.

Very impressive. Both versions. He's definitely still got it!

Thanks for those.

I got to shake Nokie's hand at CAAS last July and also got to hear him play a set. He was using a scooter to get around, but the man can still play!

I didn't realize until a few years ago what a great thumb picker that he is.

Today is Nokie's 80th birthday!

Happy birthday Nokie and thanks for all the lessons!
