David Beckingham – Blind Blake (Tab)
Here’s another great tab by David Beckingham. This time of a tune by, ragtime blues innovator, Blind Blake.
Here are a few notes on the tune from David:
The arrangement has Blake’s intro, but I didn’t play it in the clip – mainly ‘cos it’s hard to fit it in with the backing track.
I’m using thumb and two fingers more than usual in this one. Blind Blake’s “sportin’ thumb” is a notoriously difficult thing to replicate and I’ve really just given up on authenticity and gone for fun (and added my own little variation up the neck)
