Like everybody else in the Delta, they listened to phonographs, jukeboxes and the radio, and they sang country music, popular songs of the day, even jazz, for both blacks and whites. Singer Johnny Shines, who knew [Robert] Johnson well, said that the singer of the doomy 'Hellhound on My Trail' was also 'a polka hound' - David Gates on the bluesman stereotype, Newsweek

Furry Lewis "I will turn your money green"
« on: April 01, 2005, 10:43:27 PM »
John was teaching me "I will turn your money green"  by Furry Lewis today, and I am just loving this song!!  You know those songs that just seem to fit your natural Rhythm (this is rare for me as my rhythm isn't the greatest at this point in time lol).  It is in open G and aside from lapslide I am new to playing in this tuning on standard guitar.  What are some of your fav's in this tuning??
Take care,

...and Ryan unwittingly invokes the Adventures in Spanish thread.;Itemid=47&topic=166.0

Check it out, Ryan. Lots of great ideas in there. You're right, Turn Your Money Green is infectious to play (as is a lot of Furry, IMO).

Thanks for the Spanish Tuning thread link Bud.  Some great ideas there.   I have not taken my National out of open G for the past month.  I've been working on some great stuff from my last lesson:  'Drinking Water From A Hollow Log', 'Jinx Blues', 'Yo Yo Blues', and Paul Rishell's 'Louise' and 'You've Got It Made'.    An awesome lesson to say the least.  Up next from the same lesson are 'Jitterbug Swing' and two standard tuning tunes, 'Keep It Clean' and 'Depot Blues'. 

Now, if I only had a third guitar so that I could keep one in G, one in D, and one in Standard . . .
