Hey, a John Hurt tune. Can’t go wrong with one of those.
Big Leg Blues
Another John Hurt tune, just can’t get enough of this guy. Also courtesy of Mr. Miller.
More John Hurt goodness, only I’m having trouble with this one, not so easy.
This is a pretty little Mexican folk tune. I’m not too happy with this recording, but I’m ready to move on to another song and this one is really meant for a classical guitar. I think I’ve figured out where most of my background noise is coming from — my computer.
I’ve recorded this one before, but I thought the first time was a little rough. This one’s got a lot of background noise in it, though. Got to work on that in my new recording space.
It Won’t Be Long
Another one I learned from Happy Traum’s DVD.
A new DVD & booklet of John Hurt tunes by John Miller means new recordings!
You’ve got to Walk that Lonesome Valley
This is probably Elizabeth Cotton’s most famous song. I learned it from Miller’s DVD with a little bit from Traum’s DVD thrown in for good measure. Oh, and I’m singing. Enjoy.
A version of the buck-and-wing dance song I learned from the Grossman Book. It’s still a bit rough in the middle; those triplets are hard!
Here’s a simple John Hurt tune I learned by listening to his recordings.
