This nice little tune is a song by Robert Johnson, 32-20 Blues. I play this song in Open-G here. The common knowledge about this song so far now is that this was played in key of A with regular tuning. But I believe that this song was player in Open-G tuning.The total resonant is far greater when you play it in Open-G than played by regular tuning. In this video, I'm using Open-G with capo at 2nd fret, key of A. Also, it's more comfortable to play in Open tuning, for sure.円熟。
And, of course, you know, Robert can play this tune both in regular and Open-G with exactly the same notes. This is my hypothesis that Robert can play a song in different tunings almost identical way.
Robert Johnson is still mystery...

Mississippi John Hurt recorded thirteen songs on the Okeh label, including "Avalon Blues." Then he disappeared. His music influenced generations of folk and blues performers, but the mystery remained. Who was he? What happened to him? In 1963, Tom Hoskins, following the clues of the "Mississippi" in Hurt's stage name, and the lyrics of this song, "Avalon, my home town," located Hurt living in a simple shack in tiny Avalon, Mississippi, the same shack pictured early in the video, and later as the reconditioned Mississippi John Hurt Museum. Not only was Hurt still alive in 1963, but the real miracle was that he retained his sweet singing voice and fluid guitar skills. He recorded dozens of songs and toured extensively in his final three years, sharing his beautiful music with the world. Sometimes there really are happy endings.
