I met John Hurt through Mike Seger in Newport in '63. His agent, Tom Hopkins said we could sit and talk. Of course it was a festival and I was sitting backstage with him and a few people. A month or so later he was playing at the Philadelphia folk festival. I saw him approaching me and I started walking briskly to him to ask if he remembered me, I was in my early 20s, and when I got near enough, he said 'Hey Man! Do you remember me!?' hehe! That explains Mississippi John Hurt! Instead of me asking, he did! - Jerry Ricks, http://www.blueschat.com/tscripts/bc062198.htm

"Arrangment for me" by Bo carter
« on: January 29, 2019, 04:47:23 PM »
Hi, there!
I'm new to this board and I'm 19.. seems to be one of the youngest if not mistaken. I'm a country blues player and here's my take on Mr. John Miller's arrangment of "Arrangment for me" by Bo carter.
I'm pretty sure John played it in standard tuning and in key of A, while Bo seems to use DGDGBE tuning. Anyway, I really like John's arrangment, for a tighter tonality that Standard tuning has. Hope you like it.

Sounds good. Smooth fret work. Why not try to sing the song?

Hi alexwang17,
Welcome to Weenie Campbell!  Credit where credit is due--your arrangement is quite different from what I played, which was in DGDGBE like Bo's, so you can consider this arrangement all your own.
All best,
Johnm
