Hi all,
Cornelius Bright's versions of "Devil Got My Woman" and "My Baby's Gone", posted by Pan in the Cornelius Bright thread, were both played in cross-note tuning.
All best,

Hi all,
After re-reading this thread and looking in the "Adventures in Cross-note" page at Weeniepedia, I realized we had never identified the Henry Townsend songs played in cross-note tuning.  As he was one of the foremost practitioners in the tuning, it is kind of a serious omission.  The following tunes of Henry's were all played in cross-note, and I may add others.
   * Doctor, Oh Doctor
   * Henry's Worry Blues
   * Jack of Diamonds/Georgia Rub
   * Mistreated Blues
   * Poor Man Blues
   * She's Got A Mean Disposition
All best,
Johnm

As per video posted over on "Down The Dirt Road", Arthur Crudup played "That's All Right, Mama/If I Get Lucky" out of cross-note tuning.

I've been listening to a LOT of Arthur Crudup lately, and while I haven't heard EVERYTHING, at this point I'd be hard pressed to pick out an example that was NOT played in cross-note!

I *must* be wrong....

I don't know, Frank, I think you may be right, at least for his E-sounding stuff (and I don't know if he had anything that wasn't E-sounding stuff).  Whenever I hear him, I find myself thinking about how terrific an electric guitar can sound sometimes.  And his singing, gosh!
All best,

Hi all,
On his album released a couple of years ago, "Every Day Seem Like Murder Here", Hayes McMullan played the song "Sugar" out of cross-note tuning.

Hi all,
Fred McDowell played "Jim Steam Killed Lula" out of cross-note tuning on his album "Levee Camp Blues", on Testament Records.
All best,
