Big Dog Blues

The old tin geetar…

Did this one sometime in 2009 on a Boss MBR. I’d recently joined what became Songcrafters.org and PJ (Wiley) posted a bass/drum track for us ubiquitous blues guitarists to solo over.

I decided to go a different route and got the resonator and slide out… While I was fiddling around with it I started trying to do a Howlin’ Wolf voice for a laugh. After I’d recorded the guitars I thought “what the hell?” and pressed record. This is what came out…


Big Dog Blues - A A J Russe

People say there’s trouble
People say there’s trouble in my home
People say there’s trouble
People say there’s trouble in my home
It’s true the last ten nights or more
I been sitting watching the curtains on my own

I hear that you been messing
That you been messing on the other side of town
I hear that you been messing
I can hear you across the other side of town
Gonna get me a big dog
And we’re gonna go and track you down

Go get her Rover

If you’re gonna do is cry
If you’re gonna do is moan
If you’re gonna do is cry
If you’re gonna do is moan
Well I’m not sure that me and Rover
Want you back in our happy home

Like the bruthas on the Southside of Chi town would say, "that white boys got some stank on him" Damn that some low down blues! We need to collab on a blues. I am convinced of this.

Thanks Andrew. Glad you enjoyed the album. I was pretty happy with it for my first RPM and my first real dabble into that style of playing. I will be swinging back by to check out your tracks!

A fine little blues. When I hear you do such vocals I'm always afraid you'll lose your voice! ;)
