The post title doesn’t refer to any personal problems, thank goodness—my wildly unkempt appearance in the video below not- withstanding— but instead refers to an old blues song by the great Reverend Gary Davis—in case you’re curious, this bears no resemblence to the Johnny Cash song of the same name. It’s a song I’ve been drawn to for many years, ever since first hearing it (can't recall who the performer was) on University of Vermont radio when I was but a callow youth—probably in my very late teens. When I began playing the guitar it was certainly high on the list of songs I wanted to be able to play, & I have been messing around with it now for several years at least, finally settling on playing it in the key of D (in case you were curious!)
I believe this will be the last webcam post for a while—I have other ideas for Sunday come October. I’d also be interested in hearing from any blog readers who are so inclined about what they might like to see more of down the line. Robert Frost’s Banjo has been a work in process since the beginning & will continue to be, but I know some things get more “air time” & some less depending on the phase I happen to be in, so please let me know.
In the meantime, hope you enjoy the song & have a wonderful Sunday.
