Default Pig Meat Strut (Big Bill Broozny cover) on a Gibson L-00 Vintage

Hi Guys,

Here's my latest recording. Big Bill Broonzy's Pig Meat Strut played on a Gibson L-00 Vintage. It's from an arrangement by Woody Mann. The original was arranged for two guitars, one playing the ascending walking bass line and other playing the descending melody and licks. Woody combined them into one arrangement for solo guitar. It's fun to play.



I hope you like it.

Good job on that. Is that the actual Woody Mann arrangement or a loose approximation of it?

Thanks Derek! I learned it about 17+ years ago so honestly I don't remember exactly. It may have morphed considerably from the source. I've also listened to the original recording multiple times over the years so that may have influenced my playing of Woody's arrangement.

If I remember correctly Woody's arrangement used dead thumb bass for the first half of the tune then switched over to the walking bass for the final chorus. I prefer the walking bass throughout so that's the way I play it.

Looks like I missed this one - intricate and clean playing, Doug. Great stuff, good sound from your Gibson. Very cool!

Wow, great work Doug! Keeping up the bass run throughout is an incredible challenge, and you've nailed it. And the melody has a nice syncopation that I haven't heard before.

I was fun to listen to (as well as fun for you to play).

Excellent little ditty for your arsenal.
