Hello, imaginary interviewer. Thanks for this opportunity.
This is one of the songs that I'll be playing as part of the Brass Note Jug Band on Saturday 11/14/2009 at Chicago's Second Annual Battle of the Jug Bands. Our instrumentation will be:
After discussing it with my instructor, David, I'm going to just mess around on the jazz pentatonic...
and throw in a little string-bending.
110 BPM, since the rest of the band is practicing along with the Levon Helm recording. I don't think I need to follow the practice-at-20%-faster rule. Rather, I need to make sure that my groove is slow and steady.
Gizmo (Jacob Fishman) wants to sing it in G, just like Levon Helm. So that'd just be the basic g'dgbd' banjo tuning.
Same as Levon Helm. Though as I noted, Gizmo will be singing. I think he's going to have his daughter join him on stage for this song.
Don't confuse this song with J.B. Lenoir's better-known I Feel So Good, which is all over YouTube.
