This week we're starting in on an old Jimmie Rogers song, "Any Old Time." It was famously recorded by Tony Rice on his iconic record Church Street Blues which is where I learned it, but Jimmie's version is very cool. Julian Lage and I also recorded it on our record Avalon. At any rate, it's a great song that gets us away from bluegrass and a little closer to swing territory (although I wouldn't consider it a swing tune, per se). The rhythm guitar approach is built around muting the strings and choking the chord after playing it to create a more driving rhythm sound. There are also some new chords (diminished, minor 4, and strings of dominant chords) that we'll be learning to play this song.
All good stuff! Enjoy!
