Several years ago, I got an email from a woman I hadn't heard from in years, she'd been a barmaid at McGlinchey's at the time that I was working the door.

The Email just filled me in on how she was doing (well) and mentioned that she'd looked me up after having a dream that I was playing Leadbelly's "In the Pines".

I don't know that I'd ever played it before that, but I added it to my setlist immediatly.

It's amazing how many people think that song is a bluegrass song. :D

It's titled Where Did You Sleep Last Night on the above CD, I think.

One tune I play in Waltz time is Leadbelly's "In the Pines". Never heard an electric version, but it could work.

Think I'll do that in a little bit, come to think of it. 8)

Still, thanks for the suggestion. It made me go and have another look at stuff with a more jazzy feel. I looked for stuff with a 2/4 beat or feel (like the original Beatles version of "With a Little Help") that I could "Cockerise" (if that is a word I can use on this forum) into 3/4.

I can now do a great version of "Nevertheless" in 3/4 - unfortunately, it is not very blues-sounding. Still, it is a great holding song until we find something that the whole band can play. If I need a slow waltz now, I can do "Nevertheless" with just me on vocals and guitar and the drummer tapping along behind.

Thanks everyone
