Default Hesitation Blues (Rev. Gary Davis cover) on a Gibson J-45 Standard

Hi guys,

here's my latest recording. Rev. Gary Davis' Hesitation Blues played on a 2012 Gibson J-45 Standard. From an arrangement by Woody Mann.



I hope you like it.

Nicely done. Thanks for sharing that. The Woody Mann arrangements are all done well.

I learned this song from Phil Heywood, and usually start with Sally Where'd You Get Your Liquor From and go right into Hesitation Blues.

Thanks Sal! Yeah Jorma for sure. I was lucky enough to take a FPR class with him and we've had some nice conversations and emails over the years. He has very kindly praised my playing too. Jorma's a great guy.
