My Hard Time Killin’ Floor Blues Arrangment

Howdy, music folks. Thanks for all the kind words regarding my new EP Hard Times. Many of you have asked where I learned my arrangement of the Skip James song Hard Time Killin’ Floor Blues. That is my arrangement and it developed over a few years of playing. A fellow picker, Wes Weems, and I were attending Tennessee State University and would often pick between classes. The SJ song was one of our favorites and it was played often. Like a good stew, a little bit of this and a little bit of that was added until viola! 

I’m proud of the arrangement and hope Skip would be as well. Take a listen for yourself and let me know what you think. Buy a CD and support independent blues music. And as always, thanks so much for stopping by. 

Peace!
