Canned Heat Blues - uncle bud mp3
« on: April 04, 2004, 06:21:30 PM »
It ain't hi-fi but here it is. A little shocked to realize this was recorded three years ago. Note clam in the middle that I deftly turn into a break (!).

Hi UB:
Very nice, very listenable. But you can't do TJ w/o having drank lotsa whiskey!

I don't think I ever thought of that as a clam!  I still love your take on this, especially the 'heavy time'.

Yeah, sitting on the I chord was one of those "what the hell am I playing again?" moments.

As long as I don't have to drink Sterno...

I really enjoyed your version of "Canned Heat"...I had that song on my "to learn" list but I forgot about it until now... your recording has inspired me to pick up my guitar and start practicing again !!

Thanks Mardelle, you're too kind. I put it together based on versions of the song shown to me by Paul Rishell (in class at Port Townsend) and by Michael Jerome Browne.

This is a great version - I see it's been up for some months, and don't know how I missed it....Anyway, great playing and great singing too, with excellent recording quality!

There's a few older contributions that newer members might have missed - one tune from Slack - "Rising River Blues", a bunch of stuff from Reso1, banjochris and Montgomery, first efforts from a2tom, a tune from markm and thumbstyle...? Norfolk Slim, ragtime_uk, katie... probably more that I'm forgetting.

It's usually worth the effort to investigate further than the first page of topics - weenie's always got something interesting to check out!

Very fine, UB!  That's some driving, convincing, rhythmic right hand.  Vocals great too.

Thanks for letting us all in on one of Uncle's greatest hits.

Thanks Bob and Scratchy for the kind comments. It's a little mindboggling to me to see 80 people have downloaded this, given I can barely work up the nerve to play in front of my dog.

I'm also a fan of Paul Rishell ! I have two of his CD's "Moving to the Country" and "I Want You to Know" ..
I've been working on Rory Blocks version of "Canned Heat"..I have her "Classics of Country Blues Guitar" instructional cassettes...she's a great teacher..some of the other songs covered are Big Road Blues,Walkin Blues/Crossroad Blues,M&O Blues,Future Blues,That's No Way to Get Along & Police Dog Blues.?
