Sounds a bit like Saturday night shuffle, which is a lovely little piece... I have played it based on Eric Lugosch tabs... http://www.ericlugosch.com/SaturdayNightShuffle-lo.mp3 Very nice! :clap: Well played. Have you ever heard Roy Bookbinder's version of that? (I think he calls it "Saturday Night...

Caterpiggle Crawl...

I have been fooling around occasionally, trying to get some fingerpicking skills back. Here is a recent effort. It is a tune my Dad wrote years ago. It has one of the hardest licks I have ever tried to learn. It is a five fret stretch across six strings, then you slide the two notes to the same fret...

Re: Mannish Boy Blues collab anyone?

OK, I got my software working. :banana:
How do we do this? Do I send you my track, do I post it here? With or without the BT?
I'm confused. :think:

Re: Relaxing Weekend?

Did you read about the flood? It happened long time ago, in a little country town, way back in North Berwick It gushed out of the shower, it gushed both night and day The people got worried, they began to cry, 'Lord have mercy, where can we go now?' There were women and there was children, screamin...

Yeah, it's floodin' up in Scotland, and the plumber is out of town.

Re: Complete the following......

I have heard it both ways, often by the same person. It seems to be sort of interchangeable. From a singers' viewpoint, a verse is like a stanza in a poem, a chorus is a repeated stanza that reinforces the theme (my wife's analogy). From a blues guitarist's viewpoint, a verse is a chorus is a round ...

Re: Spring weather in NM aaarrgh!

Some spring BB - I guess it looks nicer from a distance. Do you often get that much snow this late in the year. :sad: What does look nice is the studio - doesn't look like a self-build. :thumbsup: No fun when you've got to chop your own logs for all your heating though. Hope you get a quick thaw. Y...

I always liked this song when Neil did it, but never thought about covering it (there are so many cool songs). Maybe I should. :big_smile:
Sounds like an octave run in the solo.. I dig that.

Open letter to members of 12bar Forum

I just want to thank the members of this forum for their enthusiasm, friendlyness, (MAC comes to mind on those) and general encouragement. I had been getting kind of jaded with playing. Hadn't played at all except for parties, open mics, and (very occasional) gigs, in ten years. Never played by myse...
