Big Joe Turner:



Memphis Minnie *- Hoodoo Lady Blues




*Memphis Minnie (June 3, 1897 -- August 6, 1973) was an American blues guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter. She was the only female blues artist considered a match to male contemporaries as both a singer and an instrumentalist. She was active from the 1920s to the 1950s

Re: Blues Blues Blues: Redux

Rhythm Willie has a cult following. The cult only consists of few dozen people, but it exists. Nobody really knows much about him, or is even sure who he was.

Here he is playing a take on St. James Infirmary. The notes say he's in upper 4th position. He played a lot of stuff high up, some of it in 1st. The guy must have been a master.

On the trail of Rhythm Willie.

My bad, I got in a little over my head.

I should have said, "He's playing the harp in an unusual way that is difficult to master."

You did get that point across.

I'm still curious what upper 4th position is/means, and some of it in 1st?

Standard 10-hole harps come in keys. For example, a harp in the key of C will blow a C chord when you exhale through 3 or more holes.

But you can play other keys on a C harp by distorting or "bending" the reeds. If you play in G on a C harp, you are in 2nd position; D is called 3rd position; A is 4th position, and so on.

'Upper' doesn't really add any information, since all the A blues scales on a C harp are are in the higher notes, but other positions can play 2 or 3 octaves.

Interesting. Thanks.

You will note that Luna is more of a Muddy Waters girl than a Hambone Willie girl.

The Rock 'n Roll HOF inducted Paul Butterfield. Here's one of his better known rockier tunes:



This is a little jazzier in an R & B kind of way:



It's a rainy night in the People's Republic of Texas, and only the State Militia stands between me and the combined forces of ISIS, the Navy SEALS, and the Green Berets.

Last hope's gone.

Re: Blues Blues Blues: Redux

As I mentioned in the book thread...Say no to the Devil...the life and musical genius of Rev. Gary Davis by Ian Zack.
"Davis would visit Lead Belly on weekends. Wasn't no drinking or getting drunk. At parties were Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, brother Stick McGhee, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Burl Ives, Josh White, Cisco Huston, Big Bill Broonzy, all in the living room, all on the floor and in chairs taking turns playing all night long." 1950
