 I was thinking about doing the Truckin' My Blues Way ragtime progression, if it hasn't been done yet, for the next open month (October?)

Thanks all. It certainly is getting trickier to come up with something original. I had another tune as back up so just wanted to check.

All the best,

Hi all,
I have selected Fred McDowell's "Let Me Lay Down In Your Cool Iron Bed", originally released on the Testament album, "Levee Camp Blues" for the Song of the Month lesson for August, 2019 at my website, www.johnmillerguitar.com.  Here is Fred's performance:



INTRO

Please let me lay down, darlin', let me lay down in your cool iron bed
Well, let me lay down, baby, let me lay down in your cool iron bed
Lord, I been drinkin' white lightnin', yes, it done gone to my head

Well, I been drinkin' white lightnin', darling, it's done gone to my head
Well, I believe to my soul, this old whiskey gonna kill me dead
Lord, I believe to my soul, baby, this old whiskey gonna kill me dead

SOLO

Lord, I ain't got nobody, baby, hold my worried head
Lord, I ain't got nobody, baby, to hold my worried head
I want you tell me, baby, what have I done wrong?
Tell me, baby, honey, what have I done wrong?

SOLO

Lord, bring me a Christmas present, darling, baby, I'm in jail again
Lord, bring me a Christmas present, baby, baby, I'm in jail again 
 
The lesson includes a transcription which has his intro, verse one and two accompaniments, and his solo.  In addition to the TAB transcription, you will receive very thorough talk-throughs of the piece.  Cost of the lesson, for the month of August, 2019 only, is $35.00 U.S.  For more information or to order the lesson, go to www.johnmillerguitar.com in the Teaching section.  I hope folks will be interested in learning this song from one of the greatest of Country Blues singers and players in the post-War era.  Thanks for your time.
All best,
Johnm

I wasn't griping, just pointing people back to that thread for some more tunes. Easy to hit duplicates when you go for these "well trod" tunes. Good post all the same, Ned.

I particularly go for this1928 version by Bert M Mays.



Also from 1928, this version by James 'Boodle It' Wiggins



And while we're in 1928, here's Tampa Red's Hokum Jug Band

Live sound setups frequently employ bi-amping. Personally, I have enough trouble managing all the permutations all the way through the signal chain that adding more knobs to twiddle would make matters worse. But for top live sound engineers (i.e. not me) of course it gives you a lot more control. I have so much respect for great live sound engineers.

But on a home system, why not? You can spend hours dialling it in, without getting beer-canned from the crowd and humiliated from the stage! I say "go for it". Hell, get a 2 channel mixer with low-noise and great EQ while you're at it.

Oops, I should have checked before that last point I made.  BanjoChris has already made such a list of the Songs of the Month and has been maintaining it as new Songs of the Month have been posted.  So Chris's thread is the place to check before posting a new Song of the Month, going forward.
All best,
Johnm
