Title: Bukka's Jitterbug Swing - Bukka White
Post by: Big River on April 01, 2013, 02:00:52 PM
Here is a recent video I did of Bukka White's "Bukka's Jitterbug Swing". It is in open D tuning tuned a half step low to D flat. I tried to capture Bukka's lively train rhythm and not be a slave to his original performance and throw in some of my own thing into it. Of course, Bukka had that weird minor tuning, but I think you don't really need it (just change your fingering for the four chord). A fun tune to play live and I did a little tweaking of his lyrics on the last verse. Hope you like it.
