Glory Of Love
« on: April 03, 2009, 01:18:32 AM »
My own simple version of a well known song I guess.  Guitar is Gibson Nick Lucas Special - 12 fret "large body" mahogany from 1929-30 or so.  I've had this guitar for some time now and can't imagine parting with it.  Original, but plenty of cracks and wear.

"Simple"?  Thanks Gerry, very nicely done.
(and a damn sight less simple than my version....not that simple is bad....  )
That's one of my all time favorite songs.
 Really enjoyed it, Gary

That is nice.  I play that, but don't sing it.  The way I play it, I go to a minor 4 chord the second time in the bridge, and the flat third is in the melody.  I play kinda a combo of Joseph Spence' version and RealBook changes.  Drop D tuning, key of D.

Big Bill Broonzy apparently loved this song, since he recorded it many times.
I've been playing it myself, so I really enjoyed to hear your version.

Cheers

Blue, I use an older Edirol .mp3 recorder with just the onboard mic for short samples at home (like Springtime Blues).  The full length tracks were done some time ago in a friend's professional studio.  They are .wav files with fidelity reduced to the required .mp3 size.  Thanks,

Gerry
