Does anyone know "Remington Ride"...

... the way it's played by Freddy King? I have been working throught the picking OK, but can anyone help me with the chord shapes/positions in the backing rhythm? I really like the "stabby" chords, but I'm having some trouble locating them and would really appreciate some help. I've always had a hard time figuring out chord shapes and positions, and these are buried behind the crisp guitar. Before I drive my wife completely nuts with the repetition, I'd love a hint or two (or three!). Thanks.

The Herb Remington "Remington Ride"(that's become a standard in the bluegrass banjo world) is an "AABA" form song with I-IV-V-I-V on the "A" part and IV-I-II-V on the "B" part.

Freddie's version is a masterpiece of manipluation of tone.

I wonder how he got all those tones. Did he use different:
guitars

amps

effects

mic placement?


It sounds like there's several different players playing different guitars/amps.

hunh! I didn't remember that he did this tune, but hey I had the record.

It's pretty basic, A section is E7-B7-A7-C7, the turnaround is E-C#7-F#m-B7. The bridge is A7-E7-F#7-B7.

The rhythm section is really muddy, I wouldn't worry too much about the exact voicings, tenor and piano buried in there too -- but you can get the basic chords out of there.

The thing I want to grab for the first chord is 5th position E7, or 7th position works too. The rest of the guitar rhythm part works fine around that area, 5th-9th position, standard chord shapes. I didn't hear anything exotic.

Thanks for checking it out for me, I appreciate the help. PM sent.

+1 with Mr. Lucky....with the caveat that the 'verse' line ends on an E after that C chord. FWIW, this is one of the 'lightest' tunes I have ever heard F. King play.
Chet, those quick tone changes are the result of the Varitone on that STereo Gibson. Having had an ES-345 since I was 16, I am much accustomed to guitars that offer a great deal of flexability.
