Beer + guitar + new cam = This!There is a glaring mistake in the second half that makes me start laughing but other than that I liked it so much that I added some harmonica to it.Plus it was actually requested by Mr Barrie Coll, and who are we to refuse him.I used to perform this song as part of the blues duo Rhythm & The Devil but in almost an exact reverse format to this - I would do the first two verses with just harmonica and vocal and then Ken (the other half of R&tD) would come in on guitar from the start of the harmonica solo. I may record another version in that format.Anyway, this is actually a mish mosh of King bee and Honey Bee by the mighty Muddy Waters. Hope you enjoy it.
Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon were a sublime meeting of genius. Here's my version of one of their collaborations, which I hope does it justice.Sorry about the camera angle looking over the top of my head - it's all guesswork until after I finish the song :D
A song I used to sing as part of the duo "Rhythm & The Devil". I used sing and play harmonica on it and (much better) guitar was supplied by Ken, the other half of the duo. The big sigh at the beginning is because I had just catastrophically flubbed my first take to a standstill, making my "First take goes up" rule impossible. So a scant second before this clip begins, there was a horrendous guitar noise, some "sailor swearing" and a deep breath before carrying on. So it's still part of the first take session, just not all of it.Once again, my singing suffers from playing guitar, but it's a road you have to travel - you can't just *arrive* at good.. Anyway, please let me know what you think in the comments :D
My version of Hard Time Killing Floor Blues.What you can't see is that this unrehearsed clip was taken in the middle of a larger session of mucking about. to test sound with my new setup.So as usual, you get it warts and all.And oh boy, is it warty...:D
