I had to sell my soul to the devil in order to learn to play like [Tommy Johnson]. Only the fellow who called himself the devil offered to teach me guitar in ten easy lessons, fifty dollars down and ten dollars per lesson.

Thanks to the keen ears of Uncle Bud and DJ, I have been able to work up a rendition that approximates Curley's original recording. Thanks guys!

Sounding good, Nate. One thing I would comment on is the bass riff at the end. The time sounds a little off on it. Curley plays the first five or so notes ahead of the beat on the offbeats, whereas you are playing them on the downbeat and it seems to cause some kind of traffic jam at the end or something.
