Blind Willie Johnson's Soul of a Man
« on: March 09, 2006, 02:53:50 AM »
Hello everyone,

     I have a few of questoins to ask.

       1. Has anyone had any experiance with Willie Johnson's Soul of a Man? I think he does it in D tuning.

       2. I've heard a very good recording of the song done by Bruce Cockburn which sounded like it was done in a C tuning. Can anyone expound or offer tabs to either arrangement.

      3. I recently heard Cockburn's King Kong goes to Tallahasse. Drop D I think. Same question applies.

  Thanks for any replies

Blind Willie Johnson's "Soul Of A Man" came up on another forum a week or so ago.  The linked thread should give you some pointers.  Can't help with the other tunes - never heard 'em.
