There's no way in the world I can feel the same blues the way I used to. When I play in Chicago, I'm playing up-to-date, not the blues I was born with. People should hear the pure blues - the blues we used to have when we had no money. - Muddy Waters

I think Blind Boy Fuller was pretty accomplished in G standard, as he was in several different positions.

I would also put William Brown on this list. Even though he really recorded only 2 songs for Lomax and Work, Ragged a Dirty shows a strong musicianship in G position and I often point out that he manages to incorporate the entire chromatic scale, save the flat II note, in his arrangement. I imagine Mississippi Blues will get him on the A standard position list, too.

Memphis Minnie, especially during her "inter-marriage" period.

I'd nominate Jesse Thomas for Blue Goose Blues.

Mississippi John Hurt has a few gems in G, especially the two songs played on Pete Seeger's Rainbow Quest show.

Hi all,
Yank Rachell did some sensational playing in G position in standard tuning. It was probably the playing position he excelled in the most.
All best,
Johnm
