Outstanding DS - this song and style really suits you and your vocal range.  The vocal is super.

Makes me want to immediately go out and buy a lap guitar.  ;D

Big Road Blues
« Reply #47 on: April 02, 2007, 10:20:07 AM »
Here's another tired ole' classic, Tommy Johnson's "Big Road Blues" in drop D (half step down). 
Since I don't have the brilliant Charley McCoy "seconding" me I thought I'd record it with the 12-string to make the arrangement a bit richer :)
Enjoy,
Carl

A few people asked me for the chords to this song; here they are :

walk up to the intro is played on the third string : open and second fret
intro : C - Am - /D7 - G7 - /C C7 F Fm /C - - -/
1st verse : C - - - / C7 - - - /F - - - /F - - F#?7/C - - - /Am - D7 - /G - - - / G - - - /
C - - - /C7 - - - /F - - - /F -  - F#?7/C - Am -/D7 - G7 - / C C7 F Fm/C - - - /

F#?7 is 2x121x

You can play variations at will for the 8 beats in G

The G7 after the D7 is 3x343x

Cheers,
Carl

Nice job, Daddy S.

Just a note to add that if people are interested, the tune (and how to play it) was also discussed here:

Hi all,

Here's an arrangement I learned many years ago from a record of a British bluesman named Dave Peabody.  Works great on a 12-string guitar.
Originally recorded by Ida Cox in 1924; don't you love the lyrics  ;)



Enjoy,
Carl

And enjoy it I did. Thanks for posting the link. Anybody wanting to listen to the original can find it here as a RealAudio stream:
http://www.redhotjazz.com/coxlabs.html
If you've never been to this fantastic web site, you'll find a lot more of interest!

Another tune I like that was first performed by a female blues artist is "Why Don't You Do Right" which was recorded by Lil Green in 1941 (written by Joe Mccoy). It came to broader attention when it was re-recorded a year or so later by Peggy Lee as a young vocalist fronting the Benny Goodman Orchestra.

We interrupt this thread for an off-topic information item.

When jazz writer John S Wilson interviewed Lee in 1981 for the New York Times he raised the subject of "Why Don't You Do Right" and she told him:

"I was a big fan of Lil Green. When I joined Benny Goodman I travelled with a wind-up phonograph and some records by Lil Green and some Debussy records. What a mixture! My dressing room was next to Benny's. He heard me play Lil Green's "Why Don't You Do Right" over and over".

Normal service may now resume. :)

Hi all,

Instead of bashing the good ol' Reverend I thought I'd record one of his bluesy gospels.

Recorded in my rather narrow hallway for added reverb effect ;)



Enjoy,
Carl

Nice, what would you term that tuning open C ?

Did BWJ use that, or who did?
(That's enough of that. Ed)

Yes, this is what generally is called Open C.
BWJ never used this tuning, he only played slide in Open D.
I've read in an older tread that Sylvester Weaver is the only one in Country Blues to ever use this tuning.
I play Lemon's "One Kind Favor" also in this tuning (it's also on Youtube).
Cheers,
Carl
