So they get part of the tune. Then they flag it and get frustrated. Damn, be happy! You got part of the tune. That doesn't stop you... it's not being complacent, it's being realistic. You can't just go through every CD you have and every tune that you like say 'Why can't I play that?' Or 'Why can't I play it as well as that?' - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

Nice. What's the guitar actually?

You could slow down a bit. This is not a criticism, I just reckon a slightly slower dynamic would open up more possibilities you could exploit. Very enjoyable and educational.

Liked the way you saved the mega 'churchbell ring' til the end, knowing the Lemon freaks would be waiting for it! Thoroughly enjoyed that one Mr Stovepipe.

You're right Rivers, it's a bit too fast (that dreaded red recording light...)

The guitar is a "L-00v" made by John Gr?ven.  John got hold of a few L-00 from the thirties (one is Mary Flowers') and started to make copies.  I really like it, plays well and souds real vintagy.  There's an interesting rewiew of it on the Little Brother site.   
Cheers,
Carl

Gospel Blues

Hi all,

Here's a little "Gospel Blues" on the lap slide.
First I play McTell's "River of Jordan" and then "Right on That Shore" based on Roosevelt Holts rendition.  He's one of those musicians that falls into the category "wish we would have heard more of"
Enjoy,
Carl

Beautiful playing.  Thanks for that one.  What tuning are you using?

Fulfilling cheapfeet's request with another tired old standard.
Poor Boy, but in Ramblin' Thomas' version.
I'm one half step below Vestapol.
Enjoy,
Carl

Well, here's another classic that's been done a zillion times...so one more won't hurt I guess.
It's more based on Johnny Shines "Ramblin' Blues" than on Robert Johnson's version.



ps : it looks like I'm having the "porch" pretty much to myself lately.  How about it guys...I'm going to feel really blue when you leave me so alone....dust off those strings, have some fun and start posting.

Nice job, Daddy S.! That's one beautiful-sounding weissen-thingy. An unusual choice of tune to take on, in this version, very reminiscent of Blind Willie Johnson at times, eh? You've got a great touch with both picking and steel hands. Way to dig up a weird one.  :D

I really liked this -- you get a beautiful tone from that guitar.

I've loved that song since the first time I heard it on the Anthology.  Great version!
  I've never sat down and tried to figure it out.. did Ramblin' Thomas do it lapstyle as well?

Jim,
this topic "Ramblin' Thomas lapstyle or not" has been discussed somewhere I think (but I can't remember where exactly); anyway, nobody can tell for sure.  In this case you don't have to play it lap style, it is easely played on a roundneck guitar as well.  But I have to admit that playing it  lapstyle gives the song someting extra.  Hard to explain, you'll have to try it to feel and hear it.
I think we're on the verge of a lap slide renaissance... ;)

Hi SpikeDriver,
thanks for the comments.
The Weiss was made by Tony Francis of New Zealand (his website will be up in a few weeks).  It's an exaxt copy of a Style 4 Weissenborn and made of Tasmanian blackwood, which is a member of the Koa family.  I also have a Lazy River in mahogany but I prefer the Tony Francis which is very well suited for my bluesmaterial.  I really like playing lapslide, it gives your playing a new dimension.  You'll be surprised that even the simpliest tunes sound great on a lapslide and it's not difficult to learn if you already fingerpick.
The little black guitar is a Gr?ven L-00v.  John Gr?ven makes copies of some older guitars now.  It has a cool vintage sound and plays real easy.  You'll find more info on John's website.
The resonator is a "Delta" made by John Alderson of the UK www.deltaresonatorguitars.co.uk

Here's a much covered Blind Blake song in a lapslide version.
I'm in vestapol, half step down.
I kinda wonder if someone recognises the basic lick and some other ideas...got it from a contemporary player.  That'll be the $1000 question  ;)
