Hi all,
Here is a really unusual one-chord number, Larry Johnson's "Lordy Good Lord", from his "Fast and Funky" album on Blue Goose.  This is really original guitar playing, I think.  Here it is:

Hi all,
Rube Lacy's "Mississippi Jail House Groan" definitely qualifies in this category.

I was searching this thread simply to see if this recording was mentioned. I'm glad it is. I have loved this track for a long time. One I'll never grow tired of.
