Moving Day

New on YouTube: “Moving Day“, a 1906 song that Charlie Poole recorded in 1929. Played here as a cross between a dirty blues and a country fingerpicking rube song.

Production notes: National Estralita acoustic guitar with glass bottleneck; iMovie HD; Garageband for audio processing.

The bottleneck riffs are copied from brass band parts in the 1906 Arthur Collins recording, which I got on

The song is by Harry Von Tilzer and Andrew Sterling. Original sheet music available on
