Title: Kay Archtop Guitar........cover of "When did you leave Heaven?"
Post by: onewilyfool on March 29, 2011, 10:50:00 PM
1940's (?) Kay all mahogany archtop. Very beautiful tortise and black and white binding on the top Here I'm playing a cover of a version of a Bill Broonzy song "When did you leave heaven?" Fairly chunky "V"neck, 1 3/4" nut....

Great job, you captured the feel so nicely. Love those Kay deluxe style guitars too. I play this song when my wife comes out to see a show every once in a while. I figure any song she loves must be a great one. I've also found a couple of simple moves in this song that make a big difference in the bass range. Too bad many of us aren't close enough to meet and jam. Keep em coming!

Thanks Guys.....Little Brother, always looking for ways to embellish, do you have a version you can share? I also play this when my wife comes to hear me play at the coffee house, BIG brownie points....lol.....I WISH I was close enough to a lot of you guys to jam....lol.....

Hey Wily,

My pleasure, you sure don't need my help, but this is how I've been getting this one done in basic form. You'' see the sliding bass move I like to stick in. I also love coming through that D to G change with a kinda Eddie Bowles sound. I guess this is cyber-porch-jamming to some extent! Weenie style....
