Taking requests...

Post by Blindboy »

The Trainwreck Blues Band is taking requests... Just write it on the back of a twenty dollar bill and pass it up to the stage. :lol:
Actually, we are looking around for a little new material, ten or so songs. Many of y'all here on 12bar are familiar with our sound and style (such as it is :roll: ), so I thought I would ask if anyone has any suggestions for good blues tunes. Slow, fast, or half fast... stuff that is at least a bit danceable would be good. Nothing too hard, though. (Our drummer wants to do "Couldn't Stand the Weather" :yikes: )
Any ideas?
Thanks, Guys.

What about some more songs from Albert and Freddie King? :dance:
"I'll play the Blues for you" should fit!

Some good suggestions guys.... :D
Losaavedra, We sometimes do Smokestack... I once did that one on stage with Hubert Sumlin... one of my cherished memories. We also do "Hurts me Too" and sometimes "Ramblin'"
12bar... The Kings are always a good bet...
We did pick up Otis Rush's "All Your Lovin" and "Killin' Floor". We'll see how well they work out.
Hoping for more suggestions, guys....

BB. I give no suggestions for songs. You get to choose what suits you and your level and style. However, I put up this link. There you can choose from. http://www.guitar-tube.com/
