Ah, swing, well we used to call it syncopation - then they called it ragtime, then blues - then jazz. Now, it's swing. Ha! Ha! White folks yo'all sho is a mess. Ha! Ha! Swing! - Louis Armstrong, asked by host Bing Crosby to explain swing on a national radio program

Kid Bailey - Rowdy Blues
« on: December 22, 2010, 04:23:37 PM »
Not to bombard you guys with videos but I'm off this week on vacation so I have a little time on my hands and want to share my musical ventures. No second guitar here and I 'm not  bendy enough on that 1st string - heck not even sure I 'm playing it in the same key as the orginal. But anyway here's what I ended up with.  

I'm wearing a different hat - still working on changing the sweatshirt - vacation...remember!

Cool version! I like the heavy time and the new hat. What kind of giant capo is that?

sounds great, nate.  I feel like there's more tension on the turnaround if you avoid the IV7 chord altogether, but that's just a personal thing (why change chords when the I will do? :-) )

Thanks for the recommendation Frankie - I'll give your IV7 turnaround omission a try.

UB - Thanks for the feedback. I bought the capo from a store around 15 years ago and I've never seen another one quite like it. Basically it's a slightly concave rubber roller with a steel rod that has springs attached on one end. The other end attaches to a small sleeve that slides over the end of the rod. Both springs attach to a shorter rod that passes through an hourglass shaped piece of rubber that is perfect for the old V - necked guitars. You can also roll it up and down the neck w/o removing it which is kind of cool in a gimmicky sort of way.  Not sure why it appears so large in the video as the top bar is only 3 1/2" long.
