pxm - "Cissy Strut Paxomania"

Post by pxm » Tue Jan 16, 2018 9:34 am


This is my version of the great funkblues
"Cissy Strut" (original by The Meters, 1969). 🙂

The arrangement and the bassline is by me.

I love this 12 bar bluestune, its just genial.
The head and the chords.

It was fun and interesting to record my own
version of this classic bluestune. 🙂

I call my version "Cissy Strut Paxomania"

What do U like my version ???
Does it work ???

Yes, it works! A bit faster than the original and very funky with a cool bass line :chicken:
