Hi all,
Here is one played in F position I'd never heard before, "Mississippi Strut" by Charlie "Dad" Nelson.  Boy, it's nice!



All best,

Hi all,
Asa Martin played his "Jake Walk Papa", for which he was joined by Doc Roberts on mandolin, out of F position.  Here it is:

Hi all,
Bob Coleman's "Sing Song Blues", recently in the "What Is This Musician Doing?" thread, was played out of F position.
All best,

Hi all

If I'm not terribly mistaken, "Waiting for You" a waltz by Mississippi John Hurt is played out of F position.



Edited to add; as Johnm says below, MJH actually played out of G position in std tuning.

Cheers

Pan

Hi Pan,
I think John Hurt is working out of G position there, Pan.

Oops, so I was wrong! Thanks for the correction John, G position really makes sense.

I edited my post to include your correction. Now back to the drawing board!

Cheers

As I mentioned recently I have been getting into playing in F and I was led there by a song that is not previously mentioned in this topic, "Fattnin' Frogs for Snakes" by the Mobile Strugglers. I've been working with a fiddler and she asked if could we play it pitched a F like the recording. I was trying to create a backing arrangement using some of the mando licks in the treble against some of the bass licks from the boom-changy guitar of Paul Johnson. Sure seemed like he was playing in F, so I decided to follow suit and learn something. That was a really fun project, altho the pandemic has preclude me getting together with the fiddler, so I tracked down this thread to find more songs played in F. It was fun to read through and remember some of the interchanges from before.

Anyway, I don't really know if Paul Johnson would qualify for the new "Guitar Stylist" topic, but wanted to put the song on this topic.
