Hot Tamales and They're Red Hot.....


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
A Robert Johnson classic and one of my faves ....cos it is not actually depressing or about blowing someone away ....or stuff. This is a repost ...a snatched away version went up last night ...or the night before...but the vocals were VERY ropey and rightly pointed out it got yanked ...oh shit I can't say that ....urm it got pulled off...oh bugger that's worse ...I removed it and redid it ...this is for Vic D....if I could separate the guitar from the vocal of the last version i would send you a copy....

I saw Robert Johnson and had to hear it ... didn't hear the previous ... this sounds as authentic as him ... Robert has been such a huge influence on music ... you pulled it off just great! ... I like your improv pickin' lead and the percussive squeak of your chair seems to be in beat ... seriously though ... nice job of a great tune!
Cheers

It was meant to be
more an interpretation than a impersonation or copy....I played the guitar in a country blues style which I think is much my metier .....but it was just for a bit of a hoot....

Thanks

There is a nice, authentic feel to this, Chris. Some nice picking hiding in there, too. Tight ending :-) Thanks, Peter.

Thanks for that...
I noticed the Epiphone 175 hadn't had an outing just lately and might feel a bit neglected what with new Banjos and Pianner Ackordeens coming into the house....

Thanks

thanks for indulging me
I like the feel of this. A bit hi-fi to be 1920 shellac, but otherwise authentic sounding.

No problemo Vic...
the vox is not great ...but hell I can't really sing.....I think I may try out the scratchy shellac deal ,sounds like it could be a laugh...

Thanks for the patient listen ...

Cheers

Nice contribution Chris.You got this Willie Nelson timing thing going on, but once the ear gets acclimated it's all good...Much enjoyed.

Guitar playing rolls along nicely. I find the vocal is sort of "in the distance" and would have preferred it up a bit, but I enjoyed listening to the performance! Nice one, Chris.

It is difficult
for me to play and sing at the same time and remember where the microphones are .....still BBKing can't play AND sing at all.....although when he plays...............sheesh !

"Oh shit, I can't say that"....
You are such a card Mr. Jarvis! You also seem to underestimate what a wonderful and individual gift you have with your music. Man, listen to you go brother! You really impressed me with your picking and strumming and your vocal work (and this song) really made me feel good; I think that's what I love most about music, that feeling. Well sir, if you don't mind, me shall place this track on my new-fangled mobile phone (first time I've ever had one and this is a good place to keep it) and thank you for re-posting this (I heard that version too last night!) Take care Chris, Michael

Cheers

Thanks for dropping by.

I've got to say
that your playing has gained a lot of fluidity and sounds just great with your new soft vocal style.... just sounds great Chris, regards M

Oddly enough
I think learning the banjo has improved my guitar playing....and I have been listening....and I mean really listening to others on here and their playing techniques...I am pleased that it has paid off.....

Thanks Mo,

Cheers

I remember hearing this song
for the first time in a folk club maybe 40 years ago.

This brings back the taste of Old Holborn, the nervously sipped pint and the excitement of getting up and playing LIVE!

Thanks Chris :-)

Cheers

Not something I have
ever been brave enough to do Dick....not outside friends,colleagues or family....and family is never bothered ....they've heard all the swearing and reswearing ....I mean rehearsing !

Thanks for having a listen.

I think
you are bit quiet with the singing but that is some exceptional banjoing. Sweet work, Chris. Thanks.
