Rewritten Song: Southland Blues (version 2)

Here’s the new recording of the song I released this week last year. Go ahead and compare the two by going here and listening to the 2010 version.

I did a little rework on this one. Jumbled some things up. But nothing too spectacular. I used another old Carter Family tune for the melody. This time, “I Wouldn’t Mind Dyin.” That’s another one I used to play out all the time. So it’s just kinda always in the back of my head.

Now, the previous version was pretty much a straight up blues progression. This one is too, might sound different, but it’s still blues. Just maybe a little more hillbilly blues than delta blues.

Also, I’ve got my new song all finished for this week. (Finally….) I’ll load it up tomorrow for you to enjoy over the holiday weekend. Then I gotta come right back with something else new, I guess.

Be sure you’ve marked your calendar for this Friday too. Remember that I’m playing at the Auxiliary in Logan Square. Check out the facebook event. It’s gonna be hot. Starts at 9pm.
