Cover of Robert Johnson's great tune. Playing with a brass slide on the Prust Tackhead, which holds up real well to a heavy metal slide, much to my surprise and pleasure.

Very cool.  Could listen to that all day long.  I'm sure RJ would be happy you haven't left this gem alone.

I really enjoyed it. It is inspiring to hear creativity at work. Too few are willing to try anything on their own, and I find that sad.

This flows, and is not too long, because one gets caught up in it and doesn't want to let it go.

Good job.

Hey Dannjo, thanks for ALL the kind words on my postings. I'm in open E here, which is just open G dropped one and one-half steps to accommodate the Tackhead. I think that Johnson played this on the guitar out of G.
