Title: What tune is this?
Post by: si on July 17, 2005, 05:28:29 PM
This is just one verse. It's in open D tuning. I have totally forgotten what its called and who originally recorded it. Am hoping someone will kindly jog my memory?

I Will Turn Your Money Green -- Furry Lewis

Thankyou. I had remembered this tune as being in open D. Now it appears that I was wrong as a quick search indicates that "Turn your money green" is usually in open G.
So now I'm going to retune to open G and play the same fingering but starting from the 5th thickest string instead of the 6th. That is great because I was trying to work out a bottleneck version and it was not easy in open D, hopefully will be easier now. :)

Hi Si, yes I think it is usually in Open G.  I learned it from John Miller in Open G... and know that Jerry Ricks also plays it in Open G -- and since both of them hung out with Furry, I figure they oughta know.

Cheers,

If I recall correctly, which may not be the case at all, Stefan Grossman teaches this adapted to open D on one of his videos. So perhaps that's where an open D version comes from.

Maybe so.  I know that Steve Cheseborough played it in Open D - a very nice version.
