Russo is using a non-opposing right hand technique for much of his playing on this piece, as Leadbelly did, on this and many other songs.

Iíve never heard of Russo before the post by Wax.  This one is really great, itís pretty much an instructional video what with the closeups of both hands. Great energy. I especially liked Gallus Pole.

Arhoolie still had copies of Mike Russoís LP a few years ago. Might be worth contacting them if interested. Itís a great LP.

I first heard this tune on a Jim Kweskin Jug Band LP and searched for a copy of the original for a long time, and finally got a cassette from the son of the guy who recorded it in the 50's.  Anyway, Guabi Guabi:

Thank you, Eric. Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur also recorded it (as "Gwabi Gwabi") on their "Penny's Farm" album that you mentioned earlier.

If we're on African tangent, I've long thought Machanic Manyuruke deserves more recognition than he's had. This track is off what I think is his only commercial release outside Africa, issued by Cooking Vinyl in 1989 (despite the label name, it was on CD -- the first CD I ever bought).
