Steemit Open miC week 98 "Red House"/Jimi Hendrix cover by @gibber

in #openmic3 years ago (edited)

36 consecutive weeks for me and the "openmic" contest

I have always loved this 1966 12 bar blues from the great Jimi Hendrix...

The backing track is played with my "looper" pedal through a dedicated amp. The lead is another dedicated amp plus wah and tube screamer type of pedals. The mic is a shure 58. All this channels through an old mackie 12 then a Beringer interface into Audacity. The vid is shot from and Olympus sz-12 and put all together with Window Movie Maker.

"Red House"

There's a Red House over yonder
That's where my baby stays
There's a Red House over yonder, baby
That's where my baby stays

Well, I ain't been home to see my baby,
in ninety nine and one half days.
'Bout time I see her,
Wait a minute something's wrong here
The key won't unlock the door.

Wait a minute something's wrong baby,
Lord, have mercy, this key won't unlock this door,
something's goin' on here.
I have a bad bad feeling
that my baby don't live here no more.

That's all right, I still got my guitar
Look out now . . .

I might as well go on back down
go back 'cross yonder over the hill
I might as well go back over yonder
way back over yonder 'cross the hill,
(That's where I came from.)

'Cause if my baby don't love me no more,
I know her sister will!

that sounded great, man!! congratulations!!

Right on thanks for dropping by and listening ;9)

Way to bring down the blue house, brother Gibber!

Once the mash-up is done, you and I have to do some type of collab, bro... I can feel it! I dunno, I'm thinkin' maybe something from CCR - where we can go back and forth with vocals and guitars... That might be the ticket... What say you, bro? Any suggestions?

That sounds like a lotta fun... maybe some born on the bayou ;9)

You're reading my mind, brother!
-- or perhaps one of their versions of --
Good Golly Miss Molly/Heard it Through the Grapevine... :-)
