my instrumental version of a Bo Carter tune
« on: November 04, 2015, 11:19:02 PM »
Hope you all like it, I really tried hard to learn this song as close to the original as I could get it, I decided to play the song slower, I think it's pretty that way and I decided to not sing over it until I get more confident and comfortable with the tune. I must thank John Miller for his Bo Carter lesson on his great Jackson Blues Guitar DvD, I highly recommend that dvd, its great. Without that lesson I would have had a hard time learning the turnaround which is the same as the one in let's Get Drunk Again, much of this song and the one John teaches is quite different but there are many similar elements. It's a great song.
                                                                         Cheers all, Greg.

I met a woman she was a pigmeat some
Big fat mouth, I followed her home
She pulled a gun and broke my jaw
Didnt leave me hard on, I didnt get sore

Thanks John, it was a tough song to learn, some parts I had to listen to dozens of times before I was happy, I got the turnaround bit from one of your lessons on that Atlanta video and also I picked up some things watching an excellent version on youtube by a really nice guitar player called Rainer Brunn who added some flourishes of his own. I don't know if you know Rainer but he is great and he also did some videos with a guy called Willie Salomon who is also excellent.
