Title: 99 Year Blues
Post by: Norfolk Slim on August 28, 2018, 11:29:01 AM
I am in the process of trying to build a new youtube channel featuring only more recent and polished tunes, so as to have something to direct people to for potential gigs etc.  I am also trying out some new recording equipment.  So here is the result of the intersection of those two things!

This is a tune I've been playing for years now.  One of my "go to" tunes when playing out.  I think I;ve posted it on the back porch before in various states (including a very early 2005 posting) but this is the polished one for the new channel...

Good stuff, NS! How about a link to your channel page so we can subscribe?

Nice one Simon!  love this song, loved your "old" version and this is really great.  Looks like you've got a lot goin on there but it seems to be working :)

Really a nice job, Simon!  Your time sounds really snappy and emphatic, and I like the clearer vocal tone with occasional gravel rather than continuous gravel.  You sound like you mean it!
All best,
Johnm

Nice performance, Simon and great choice of material. I like those Julius Daniels pieces very much.

Thank you folks.  I will add some more to the channel over the next few weeks (including, perhaps, a few obvious ones which will be of less interest to Weenies!)

Well PP, I was going to add some RJ for some lowest common denominator commercial appeal :-) 

However, I got round to this tune first:

Continuing to fill up the new channel...  I'm conscious that this is another string snapper- but what the heck.  Its fun to play...

Thank you for the prompt PP.  I hadn't realised he was over in November.  I will see what I can do about getting over to New Milton.

Its been a while but thw Wife is currently away so I'm trying to record some stuff.  Here is Don't Give my Lard Away by Stump Johnson.

The guitar is home-made and the sound is just through the camera mic (the other mics are up for some testing).

Nice job on the tune, Simon, and great choice of a tune.  Your guitar and the playing and singing sound good.  That's a neat arrangement, too.
All best,
Johnm
