JOHN CEPHAS & PHIL WIGGINS:

The blues flavor that starts this song is Piedmont Blues. One of the best Piedmont style players is John Cephas. In this video, look at the thumb on Mr. Cephas' right hand. It moves back and forth on the lowest string on the guitar. Here he plays the Richmond Blues with harmonica player, Phil Wiggins.

SPECIAL VOCABULARY: VITAMINS & MINERALS

The song says that "vitamins and minerals make you strong." Both vitamins and minerals are found in foods and are essential for the nourishment of the body. When the body lacks some of these, a person might become weak or sick. Specific vitamins and specific minerals have specific jobs in the body. For example, if a person does not get enough Vitamin D in his/her food, s/he might have very weak bones.
