The tune is real similar to Budded Roses which was fairly popular in the 1920s and 1930s.

Hi all,
For the benefit of those who are interested in such things, here is how the phrasing works out for "Little Mamie" by the Kentucky Ramblers.  The phrasing in the instrumental intro is slightly different from that of the verses.  The intro is phrased like so, with the first measure in each of the first three lines in 3/2 (boom-chang, boom-chang, boom-chang) followed by two measures in 2/2 (boom-chang, boom-chang).  In the last line of the intro, all four measures are in 2/2.

In the sung verses, the last line is phrased like the three other lines, with an opening measure in 3/2 and two measures in cut time, 2/2.  So it is that the song begins each line with a measure in 3, followed by two measures in 2.  As Mel Allen used to say, "How about that!"
All best,
Johnm

Thanks John.  I probably couldn't sing and play that if I tried.

Nice one, John!  It kind of reminds me of Big Bill's Saturday Night Rub

Hi all,
Anybody heard or heard of Byther Smith before?  He's a new name to me, and this was just posted on youtube today.  Boy, he's great!  What tone, both on the guitar and vocally.



All best,
Johnm

Yes I know him. He must be in his late 80s now. I got a couple of his records and even a DVD called "Blues On The Moon" produced by Delmark Records.

Here it is:



No talking heads, no interviews, no fancy cross-fades or editing tricks, just 70 minutes of Byther Smith and his band playing in some tiny tiny blues joint, the Natural Rhythm Social Club, somewhere on planet earth.
