Country Blues Lyrics / Re: I'm going home - WD "Bama" Stuart
« Last post by Johnm on September 13, 2019, 10:48:53 AM »
Hi Dale,
The obvious answer is that "I'm Going Home" has no chords, at least as 'Bama Stuart sang it.  Here is his version:

If you want to put chords to it, you could do the following:

    |    I     |    I    |    I    |   V7    |
    |    I     |    I    |  I  V7 |    I     |

    |    I    |    I    |    I    |    I    |
    |    I    |   V7  |    I    |    I    |

Plug in the chords that are appropriate for whatever key you're comfortable singing the melody in.  If you were playing this on the banjo, clawhammer style, you wouldn't need to play any chords at all, just play the melody and let the open strings drone.  I hope this helps..
all best,

I really don't think there's any need to limit yourself to wireless microphones.

My USB microphone, an Audio-Technica AT2020, came with a cable that's about ten feet long. Sitting down, I can shoot a video in which the guitar is fully visible from about four feet away, and if for some reason I wanted to make a video of myself standing up and playing, with my whole body visible, I could do that from about seven feet away with the iPad positioned vertically. The fact that you can't record and charge the iPad simultaneously might be inconvenient if you do a lot of marathon recording sessions, but personally I've never found it to be an issue – at this point, the iPad stays charged up much longer than I do!

I'd recommend you at least consider a USB microphone of some sort, though of course you should follow Harriet's very sound advice and make sure whatever you buy is compatible with your iPad.

Hi all,
The Arhoolie Foundation just shared a link on Instagram to a recent podcast focusing on Chris Strachwitz and, of course, the music he loved and recorded. I figured some here would enjoy listening so here it is:
2019 version of the 1927 event ... as the article states, different disaster speed. Do check out the "big picture" maps showing the amount of land that flooded this year ... and take a look at Cairo, Illinois, a town we like to sing about ...

I just replaced mine and got the version before what they are selling now to keep the headphone jack. Even with the connection, I don't know what system you have, Sixthstring, but you might want to double check whatever you are buying with the manufacturer's specs as to compatibility with the operating software on the ipad so the mic is recognized properly.

Someone has posted the Bob Howard version on YouTube. The lyrics are a little different from McTell's in a couple of places – notably, he sings "Is this love or heart disease?" where McTell sings "Is my lover hard to please?" and "Made that man give up his crown" instead of "Made King Edward give up his crown."

And according to Discogs, that's Teddy Bunn on guitar!

OK, thanks, all.  This iPad has the headphone jack, for what that’s worth.

Hi all,
Here is one from the downstate Delaware musician, Frank Hovington, recorded as "Guitar Frank".  I really like everything he did, and there is more stuff of his on youtube than just the record he recorded for Flywright.  Here is "Mama Don't Allow":

All best,

Can I add Papa Charlie Jackson's Mama Don't Allow It (And She Ain't Gonna Have It Here) from 1925
