pickin' & grinnin' in Fl.

Postby pikengren » Thu Jul 18, 2002 2:33 am

Been playing for about twenty years, but don't play like someone that's been playing that long. A few years ago I lost all my guitars and didn't play for two years. Man, can that mess you up! Lost a Les Paul, that was the one I figured I'd be playing for the rest of my life.
Anyway, always liked classic rock, somehow started playing with a guy that got me listening to Johnny Winter and S.R.V., and that was it.
Started messing with the slide about a year ago. Against everyones advice, I keep it in standard tuning. I've found some things that work.
Glad I found this place. Everyone seems knowledgable and helpful.

Well, Duane Allman seems to have gotten along OK silding in standard tuning. :)

bf, you must be thinking of John Hammond. He did "Buzz Fledderjohn" in Open A. :)

Robert Nighthawk handled himself pretty well in standard tuning as well.

Yep, know that, Ric.
I was referring to the grin in " pickin' & grinnin' in Fl."

Meanwhile, I try not to think of John Hammond, especially Buzz Fledderwotsit. x(

Love the Allman Bros. Grin yes, pickin' no. I'd love to do Statesborough Blues, or Southbound, just don't have the time to learn it. Didn't Duane use open D too?

"Little Martha" (which is credited to G. Allman on my CD) is recorded in Open E. I'm learning it, playing in Open D.
