Cosumnes River Blues

Artist: Dusty Turtle
Genre: dulcimer
Duration: 00:01:38

An "original" 8-bar blues that mimics unapologetically "Red River Blues" by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee. The Cosumnes River is one of the few rivers that runs free and un-dammed from the Sierras to the Pacific Ocean. Someday I'll add a verse or two of instrumental "interlude" (solos, to you young folks). I am playing a lacewood Modern Mountain Dulcimer tuned DAd. And yes, I have a 1+ fret that makes all this possible.

Thanks, Bob and Lexie. This is just the first idea of the song. At some point I'll have a few more verses and a solo and it will be ready for top 10 radio . . . or not.  smile
