Singing is where the rubber really hits the road. How invested are you? What do you have to bring to the song? How much are you capable of letting yourself feel? How much of that are you willing to show? Are you willing to step out of your set identity to engage a song? Unless singing is embarrassing, it ain't no damn good at all - Mr. O'Muck

Hi all.

I finally got around doing a YouTube video, as requested by a small Finnish blues festival ( http://www.kaaviblues.com/english.html ). I must thank the other forum members for all the good advice I got, I don't think I could have made it without your help.

Anyway, here's the video, it's very basic, lo-fi, etc. but shall have to do for now.




Thanks again, everybody! You are great!

Cheers

Pan

Thanks guys. :)

I finally just ended up shooting this one with our cheap little digital camera, to get off the hook with the festival.  ;)
The black and white looked actually nicer to me, than the colours.
I think I have to give the matter a little further study, before trying again.  :-X

Argh! Never ever buy a new guitar unless you want to redo the whole wardrobe as well!  :P

But seriously, a black hawaiian shirt with golden palm motives would be cool!  Thanks for the idea, Tom, I'll have to look into it.  8)

Hi all

I put my Zoom videorecorder on a mic stand at my gig on a Berlin bar last Saturday, to see what it can do. Here's a Blind Boy Fuller tune I did that night:

Yes, yogi, "Troubles" is my own interpretation of Kilby Snow's tune.

Thanks for your interest, yogi. Sorry, I don't do tabs. The song is really simple, though, there are just two chords, the IV or G chord, and the I or D chord.
On the instrumental part I start with a G chord like this: x-x-0-0-8-7. the top note then changes to an A on the 5th fret of the 1st string. Then follows a "transitional" G chord with no 3rd and an A on top: x-x-0-0-3-5. What follows is a D chord: x-0-0-x-7-5, with the 2nd string F# note sliding in. The 2nd string then has the 3rd finger sliding down from the 7th fret to the 5th, followed by a D note on the 3rd fret with the 1st finger. The following G chord should pose no problems: x-x-0-0-0-x. The next G chord is x-x-0-4-3-(0), with an alternating bass changing from the open D string to the 5th fret G-note. This is followed by the already explained D chord on the 5th position.
The accompaniment to the vocals just has the following two chords: G: 3-2-0-0-3-x, and D: x-5-4-2-3-x, with the 5th string alternating between the 5th fret and the open string. I play a sort of stride line with 3 bass notes to the chord, filling in with the 3rd and 2nd strings.
This should get you started, just listen and watch my video, and do listen to the original Kilby Snow video also found on YouTube, and you should be able to come up with a version of your own.

Cheers

Pan

Thank you for posting your enjoyable performances on youtube.

I wondering is that a ladder-braced catalogue parlor you are playing? I try to play slide on a stencilled Harmony/Richter but I've not seen them be used for the kind of picking you are doing so I thought I would ask.

Hi Harriet.

Yes, it's a ladder braced Oscar Schmidt Stella from the 30's. The company was bought by Harmony in the 40's but the latter "Stella" guitars were quite different. Do a search for "Stella" in the forum, and you'll come across some discussion over these instruments.
Some links to check:
http://www.stellaguitars.com/
http://www.vintagebluesguitars.com/
http://www.fraulini.com/

Players like Ari Eisinger and Paul Geremia like to fingerpick these guitars.

Hi Pan,

Thanks I couldn't see what looks like the detailing on it- those Oscar Schmidt Stella's from the 30's are IMHO beautiful for the kind of music you play.

Very nice picking, Pan, enjoyed that a lot.  Looks like you're putting some fingerboard wear on the old Stella!
Here's a sister guitar to the one you're playing, for those interested.  The Hawaiian design is pretty uncommon in the Stella line.  Tom

Hi all.

I haven't posted my performances in a while.

Here's one that got caught on a small blues festival in Tartu, Estonia, about a year ago, and which of I only just learned about myself. I think it might interest people who wonder about singing a song in a different key, than the original piece was done. William Brown's Mississippi Blues was played out of the A position in standard tuning, and probably capoed up, so he would sound about in C. Even in A  is too high for me to sing, so I transposed the song in E, still in standard tuning.  I sing the melody my own way, though, and I have had to reverse the bass line to play it in this key, but hopefully I have managed to keep the basic idea recognizable. 



Cheers,

Pan

Edited to add: apologies for the first 18 secs of electric blues guitar. :/

Wow, good for you, Pan!  That is really great and inventive guitar playing and the vocal sounds really good, too.  That last solo is really uptown--like it starting on that E6 chord up the neck.  It's really cool to hear someone do something different with that song that still has the same mood as the original.  Thanks for posting that.
All best,
Johnm
