Well, doggone it, Frank, that is great.  You're taking it wide around the curves, I sure like that.  It's inspiring to see and hear what you've been working on.
All best,
Johnm

Terrific take on one of my all time favorite songs (Doctor Clayton originally) but Guitar Pete Franklin's, Scrapper Blackwell-esque version is the Papy o' this version. Its a long time staple of my repertoire as well. Its a song that deserves to be heard and played by a lot of people...... as long as they're as good as Frankie! ;)

thanks, alla yuz. it took me years of singing this in the car to work up the nerve to try actually playing it!

o'muck - thanks for the tip on the dr. clayton source..  I'll seek that out. I always got the impression that there must be more verses to this. I hope that turns out to be true!

onewent - a regal archtop - yessir. a crack in the back could use fixing and it'd be nice if the action were a little lower and the tailpiece better aligned with the neck, but it's a keeper. Sounds like exactly what it is: the finest birch available.... "for the price!"

Well...  I can't lie...  I'm having a hard time stopping.  :-\  If it comes to me and I get something that feels real in one take, up it goes:



I always wanted to hear a really long version of this tune...  this still isn't really long enough, but it's where I landed today. Safe to say that some of this is stuff only I probably like, but it feels kinda good to get it outta my system.

thanks for listening/watching/indulging my self-indulgence!

Mets pitchers and catchers report for spring training and Frankie posts a beautiful (and beautifully long) version of Country Blues.  All's right with the world this morning.

Thanks, Frankie.
