Ah, swing, well we used to call it syncopation - then they called it ragtime, then blues - then jazz. Now, it's swing. Ha! Ha! White folks yo'all sho is a mess. Ha! Ha! Swing! - Louis Armstrong, asked by host Bing Crosby to explain swing on a national radio program

Hi all,
It has been a while since this thread hast been posted to, and I've found a number of other songs played out of Vestapol.  Fred McDowell played "I'm Goin' Over The Hill" out of Vestapol, for his duet performance with Annie McDowell.  Jessie Mae Hemphill played in Vestapol quite a lot, and she played each of the following tunes out of Vestapol:
   * Eagle Bird
   * Go Back To Your Used To Be
   * All Night Boogie
   * You Can Talk About Me
For anyone interested in figuring out songs by ear, I would recommend the Jessie Mae Hemphill songs because her left hand parts tended to be very minimalistic, most often free-handed with no chordal positions and very easy to hear, play and find.  The songs I've cited are all available on youtube, too.
All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
I'm moving all of the "Adventures in . . ." threads over to the Licks and Lessons board since they pertain strictly to guitar playing.
All best,
Johnm

Never heard of vestapol before today. Got here trying to figure the tuning for Lesley Riddle's "John Henry". Seems to be vestapol tuning in C.
