Great stuff, Pan! I liked the arrangement of Troubles a lot, is that your own?

Thanks for the kind words everybody!  :)
Yes, yogi, "Troubles" is my own interpretation of Kilby Snow's tune.

Cheers

Thanks for your interest, yogi. Sorry, I don't do tabs. The song is really simple, though, there are just two chords, the IV or G chord, and the I or D chord.
On the instrumental part I start with a G chord like this: x-x-0-0-8-7. the top note then changes to an A on the 5th fret of the 1st string. Then follows a "transitional" G chord with no 3rd and an A on top: x-x-0-0-3-5. What follows is a D chord: x-0-0-x-7-5, with the 2nd string F# note sliding in. The 2nd string then has the 3rd finger sliding down from the 7th fret to the 5th, followed by a D note on the 3rd fret with the 1st finger. The following G chord should pose no problems: x-x-0-0-0-x. The next G chord is x-x-0-4-3-(0), with an alternating bass changing from the open D string to the 5th fret G-note. This is followed by the already explained D chord on the 5th position.
The accompaniment to the vocals just has the following two chords: G: 3-2-0-0-3-x, and D: x-5-4-2-3-x, with the 5th string alternating between the 5th fret and the open string. I play a sort of stride line with 3 bass notes to the chord, filling in with the 3rd and 2nd strings.
This should get you started, just listen and watch my video, and do listen to the original Kilby Snow video also found on YouTube, and you should be able to come up with a version of your own.

Cheers

Pan

Thank you for posting your enjoyable performances on youtube.

I wondering is that a ladder-braced catalogue parlor you are playing? I try to play slide on a stencilled Harmony/Richter but I've not seen them be used for the kind of picking you are doing so I thought I would ask.

Hi Harriet.

Yes, it's a ladder braced Oscar Schmidt Stella from the 30's. The company was bought by Harmony in the 40's but the latter "Stella" guitars were quite different. Do a search for "Stella" in the forum, and you'll come across some discussion over these instruments.
Some links to check:
http://www.stellaguitars.com/
http://www.vintagebluesguitars.com/
http://www.fraulini.com/

Players like Ari Eisinger and Paul Geremia like to fingerpick these guitars.

Cheers

Hi Pan,

Thanks I couldn't see what looks like the detailing on it- those Oscar Schmidt Stella's from the 30's are IMHO beautiful for the kind of music you play.

Very nice picking, Pan, enjoyed that a lot.  Looks like you're putting some fingerboard wear on the old Stella!
Here's a sister guitar to the one you're playing, for those interested.  The Hawaiian design is pretty uncommon in the Stella line.  Tom
