Just a quick run through of a song and melody I’ve always loved! Hope you have a great weekend!
Well now, I just took a trip on your channel. Nice!
Didn't know about Way Down in the Rust Bucket either. Might need to acquire that now.
Thanks for keeping the music of Stephen Foster alive.
It has occurred to me that the most popular American music of the 19th century is unknown to most Americans. Foster’s melodies and harmonies are achingly beautiful, though many of his lyrics romanticize about plantation culture, which may contribute to all of his gorgeous songs being disregarded.
Very VERY nice! Whoo!
Have you heard Jim Campilongo's version with Martha Wainwright singing? It's good.
Nice! I play that tune a lot finger picked on ukulele...I need to learn it on guitar. Loved your version.
Thanks so much, Harry- I teach HS English for IB kids and one of our early units takes a side trip into the history of some of that music (and our complicated, deeply troubling history of minstrelsy)- you are right though- so much of his music is just breathtaking and moving. One of the first songs I covered on that channel almost three years ago was “Hard Times Come Again No More,” which could’ve been written yesterday!
That sounds right up my alley- going to check it out now!
Hard Times - fun to present @ open mic.
I was surprised by the number of folk who joined @ chorus.
The yt channel is a Saturday tradition, as I mix up the pancake batter. Enjoyed today w/ sausage...
Peace - Deeve
Nice work. You’re a hell of a player! Your version of Any Major Dude in your page is excellent.
Thank you so much!
Very nice, as said before, thanks for keeping Stephen Foster's song alive.
Is your Tele going through those Mesa amps in the back? And your tremolo? Heck how about your whole rig?
Thanks so much!
Pretty simple rig for this one: tele is going through a Strymon Mobius for tremolo right into that Fillmore 25- I got that amp before Christmas. I really love it!
"Hard Times" could have been written yesterday by Gillian Welch.
