Liza Jane 2

December 19, 2014 11:30 AM

A second version of the traditional tune Liza Jane, on clawhammer guitar . . .

Back in March I posted a version of this tune - but have since reworked it in a different tuning. Playing it in open C means I have more options for some harmony stuff up high in the melody which I liked, and I also got a bit heavier with the syncopation which seems to push the song along a little better. The introduction bit was improvised, and I worked that into it's own tune (of sorts) later on.

What Johnny Wallflower said :) Also the current mr bee just lifted his head and said "Who's that? It's good." (Which is praise indeed - I'd played another music link from the blue earlier and he didn't lift his head, just muttered "What's that? Not impressed".)
