Tasty and tasteful. Thanks for sharing. Mr. Blake would approve.

The age of the post doesn't matter to me.

I just realized this thread is over 2 1/2 years old. Funny how a thread like this keeps getting bumped up. I'll have to pay more attention in the future.

Great playing though!

Hi Greg - Don't worry about reviving old threads here. We're fine with that.

Here's an attempt on another difficult but fun tune....  I think this was the first Blake tune I fell in love with lots of years ago.



Really nice job and thanks for opening my eyes on a problem I always had trying to work this out off the record at normal speed, (I don't have one of those slow downer thingos). First were the bass notes in the first part of the verse and more importantly to go to a G7 instead of D7 after the run down to A7. Also the begiining of the intro you showed is the same as the opening part of the intro  to Hey Hey Daddy Blues and I hadn't made the connection before. Basically you have nailed it shut. It is amazing how many variations he had for his song intros, Blake is the master of cool intros
I met a woman she was a pigmeat some
Big fat mouth, I followed her home
She pulled a gun and broke my jaw
Didnt leave me hard on, I didnt get sore
