How about Dix-a-billy? IIRC, this was considered side B on one of my 45s, and I couldn't get my fill of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvfPgOvawq0

There's a lot here that's impressive, but I am fascinated by (and a little jealous of) people who can yodel. Do you think it's a natural gift, or can people be taught?

Aw, anyone can do it... It was how folks hollered to each other back in the day. That's what folks do wrong, trying. Too timid. At least when starting, you've got to mean it - Belt it out. Kinda like gulping water backwards... without the vomit.  :laugh:  Really have to open the throat.

Also, re the stringed instruments you play... can you read music, or do you play by ear?

Nope. Can't read a lick.  :shrug:
Just picked up a guitar one day and never put it down. Learned pickin on Wildwood Flower... My folks still can't stand that song, I'll tell you what... Picked up the rest as I went along, and went semi-pro... played bars and honkytonks for a while, and was in the house band for a small recording studio...

Then life happened. Figured out I hit my limit, and like wrangling horses, there just wasn't any money in it.

Having a hard time sleeping tonight because LAST NIGHT I tripped over uneven concrete in my driveway and took a hard splat. Tonight I'm really feeling it. I'm ready to take something for pain and try again to get some sleep. Who knew I'd still be hurting like this since my fall was LAST NIGHT?

I get that @AllThatJazzZ ... The third day after a fall is the worst for me...  :shrug:

Hope you're alright.

Understand, I think part of the glue of this forum has to do with the fact that most of us are not spring chickens anymore. We all are conservatives in some sort of fashion, but there is a respect that we know each other as humans beyond the political differences. I don't take falls lightly anymore, most of us don't. So it is nice to have nice folks to share a story of a fall with, even late at night. I pray you make it through this with nothing but a brief bad memory. Next week it may be me sharing a story or two in a similar vein. @AllThatJazzZ

Hmmm... You play guitar (12-string included) and other stringed instruments. You don't read music, rather have a natural ability to learn on your own. You've done session work. You can yodel. You like country and numerous genres of music. I'm starting to wonder if Glen Campbell's Alzheimer's diagnosis and death was a hoax.

Fun stuff! I'd never heard this side of them. I've got some errands to run today, but I can see I'll be drawn back to the computer later and find myself blissfully lost in some rabbit trails of discovery and entertainment. In the meantime, here's another live performance I got a kick out of from the 70s. Enjoy!

Nice video. I was digging on it until 3:27 when the lyrics went tilt. I couldn't actually understand her lyrics, but I do know it wasn't "my beard a roughening coal pile." Being a lyric freak is hard.  88kleenix

@AllThatJazzZ

Yeah I know... As it turns out, there is an alt lyric that is often offered for the song:

"My beard a rustlin cold towel"

If you were to search the lyrics, I am sure you will find them both ways.
It being one of my favorite songs, it ain't the first time I heard it presented that way. I think somebody somewhere wrote it down wrong back in the day.  :shrug:

I ain't as much of a stickler, as I had heard it done wrong before.

I still like the cover - and I rarely like covers... Maybe it's just the banjo  :laugh:

@roamer_1

Interesting, although I don't understand what "my beard a rustlin' cold towel" might mean. Or why a woman is singing about her beard. Sign of the times?

Glen Campbell is my absolute favorite entertainer, and there are a few instances on some of my favorite videos where he gets the lyrics wrong. In almost every case, it lessens my enjoyment of the song. A couple of them are accidental, and people wouldn't ever know if they weren't lyric nuts. A couple of them are deliberate. He decided to update "She's Gone, Gone, Gone" by changing "train" to "plane." It doesn't work for me. However, he changed a lyric in Allen Toussaint's "Southern Nights," and I like it far better. He first recorded it as Toussaint had written it: "Every flower touched his cold hand." That line made me sad, and I guess it had the same effect on Glen because in later performances, he changed "cold" to "gentle." Yes!

This is my favorite version of "Southern Nights." I have to hear it at least once a week.

@AllThatJazzZ
Yeah... I guess I am a lot the same way - I tend not to like concerts because the artist will often want to change it up a little bit after singing the same ol thing several hundred times. I tend to like studio better for that reason... A proper version, set in stone.

Maybe that is partly from working in a bar band, as by far and away, what you are doing is playing covers, And in almost all things, you'd better strive to play it right, or the crowd will have your head.
The closer you can come to that famous (studio) version, the better.

St. James Infirmary Blues is an American jazz song of uncertain origin. Louis Armstrong made the song famous in his 1928 recording on which Don Redman was credited as composer; later releases gave the name Joe Primrose, a pseudonym of Irving Mills. The melody is 8 bars long, unlike songs in the classic blues genre, where there are 12 bars. It is in a minor key, and has a 4/4 time signature, but has also been played in 3/4.
