    Queria hacer una versión estricta de Crossroads de Robert Johnson. Aprovechando, en la adaptación, hacer hincapié en su leyenda del cruce de caminos, y el diablo etc...En inglés, todo suena muy contundente y musical, y tuve que hacer una clara variación de tempo, para poder sustituir al cantar Crossroads por el largo Estando en el cruce de caminos No obstante, y cumpliendo la petición de Carolina, ha quedado un Blues rural aceptable.....O eso creo....Un abrazo a todos!

  • Robert Johnson Cross Road Blues

    2:33

    This is a rare recording by Robert Johnson pioneer Mississippi Delta blues singer, guitarist, and songwriter. The song, Cross Road Blues, was recorded in 1936 on Vocalion Records. This, however, is an alternative version which was not released until 1961 when it was included the King of the Delta Blues Singers album on Columbia.
    It can also be found on The Complete Recordings box set released August 28, 1990 on Columbia Records. All of the songs were recorded in two sessions during 1936 and 1937 and first released on 78rpm records in 1937. The Complete Recordings contains every recording Johnson is known to have made, with the exception of an alternate take of Travelling Riverside Blues Robert Johnson's Mississippi Delta blues style became the foundation of the Chicago blues sound and had a major influence on many rock musicians in the 1960s, such as Eric Clapton and Keith Richards. In 1968 Cream recorded a live version Crossroads which appeared on the Wheels of Fire album popularizing the song. This sound recording is administered by SME.

  • Robert Johnson - Little Queen of Spades - Speed Adjusted

    2:27

    These are my own best guesses at what I think the actual speed of the recordings should be. To me the slower speeds sound much more natural. Some say they are 20% too fast but that seems unlikely. More likely is they are 10-5% too fast. The key
    to the whole thing is the vibrato of the voice. I did these all just using my ears and tried to match each song against the other with the constant being the timbral characteristics of his voice and what a natural human vibrato would sound like. Usually when I did this the speed would fall into a natural blues key like A or E, sometimes
    with a capo on the first fret. Again, these are just my personal opinions and please don't get offended and send me a bunch of musicologist stuff. These are just for fun. These were done in Cubase by resampling so the pitch and the tempo were changed together naturally just like you would slowing down analog tape. Personally, the more I listen to these slowed down versions the more obviously unnatural the CDs sound.
    But listen and decide for yourself.

  • Robert Johnson CrossRoads - Cross Road Blues Song and Lyrics

    2:39

    Robert Johnson Crossroad - - Cross Road Blues is a song by the incredibly influential Blues singer, Robert Johnson. The song was originally released 1936 by Vocalion Records and has gone on to influence not only blue music but the world of music as a whole. Amazingly the original version of the song remained out of print until 1990, however has since been rediscovered by several new generations of Robert Johnson Crossroads fans. Because of it's significance, the song Cross Road Blues, was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

    The following are the lyrics to Crossroad Blues by Robert Johnson.

    I went down to the crossroad
    fell down on my knees
    I went down to the crossroad
    fell down on my knees
    Asked the lord above Have mercy now
    save poor Bob if you please
    Yeeooo, standin at the crossroad
    tried to flag a ride
    ooo ooo eee
    I tried to flag a ride
    Didn't nobody seem to know me babe
    everybody pass me by
    Standin at the crossroad babe
    risin sun goin down
    Standin at the crossroad babe
    eee eee eee, risin sun goin down
    I believe to my soul now,
    Poor Bob is sinkin down
    You can run, you can run
    tell my friend Willie Brown
    You can run, you can run
    tell my friend Willie Brown
    (th)'at I got the croosroad blues this mornin Lord
    babe, I'm sinkin down
    And I went to the crossraod momma
    I looked east and west
    I went to the crossraod baby
    I looked east and west
    Lord, I didn't have no sweet woman
    ooh-well babe, in my distress

    Robert Johnson HISTÓRIA

    Uma das grandes lendas conta que Johnson teria vendido a alma ao demônio para obter o seu talento e a sua habilidade com o violão. Acredita-se que ele ficou a espera na encruzilhada das rodovias 61 e 49 em uma noite de lua nova com seu violão na mão. A meia-noite, o diabo em forma de um homem apareceu para afinar seu instrumento. A partir daí, todos que ouvem suas músicas são encantados por ela. No supersticioso sul dos Estados Unidos do início do século, eram comuns os mitos demoníacos, e o tema fazia parte da tradição do blues. Suas músicas como Me and the Devil Blues, Hellhound on my Trail e Crossroad Blues aumentaram as crenças na história, pois essas músicas tinham alguma alusão ao diabo. Esta história foi difundida principalmente por Son House, um influente cantor e guitarrista de Blues Norte-americano.

    A hipótese mais provável é que a lenda do pacto com o diabo tenha surgido por inveja, pois Johnson era um excelente tocador de violão.

  • IM A STEADY ROLLIN MAN by Robert Johnson

    2:46

    Anyone watching this probably knows about Robert Johnson being one of the most important and influential blues figures in history. If not, check him out on Wikipedia and elsewhere.

    This song was recorded by Johnson on 19 June 1937 and has been covered by several artists, including Eric Clapton. However, there is something special about the primitive original, with just vocal and guitar.

    I have put together a 'Ken Burns' style slideshow video. Comments are invited.

  • Rambling On My Mind - Robert Johnson

    3:21

    I have taken 'Rambling On My Mind', slowed it down a bit and lowered the key to approximate a slower tape.

    Recently, an old music tutor of mine - Paul Scott contacted me to say: The Robert Johnson recordings were not done originally to tape. They ... Read Morewere electrical recordings, done directly to matrices. Tape recording only began being used after the Second World War - it was a German invention.

    This means that the songs we hear are the originals, or that they were speeded up when they were transferred to tape later on.

  • FOUR UNTIL LATE by Robert Johnson

    2:34

    I first heard 'Four Until Late' sung by Eric Clapton on the Fresh Cream album. It was one of the first songs I learned on guitar, and one I still like doing. .

    Robert Johnson, of course, was the author of the song (although clearly influenced by Blind Blake's 'Georgia Bound'- see my video). In 1937, he travelled to Dallas, Texas, for his second and final recording session in a makeshift studio at the Brunswick Record Building, 508 Park Avenue. He recorded this song on 19 June 1937.

    It goes without saying that Johnson was one of the most influential blues singers in history. Wikipedia has a substantial profile on him.

    There are only two photos of Johnson that I know of, and I have used these and others to make a slideshow video.

    Comments are welcome.

  • Robert Johnsons Love in Vain | Justin Johnson

    4:48

    I've gotten several subscriber requests for Robert Johnson's Love in Vain. I wanted to perform it differently than just a straight homage on acoustic guitar, so I came up with a new tuning for this electric guitar arrangement where I tune to Open A, but then tune the low E string all the way down to the A. It makes the low string sound more like a bass guitar playing along, especially when I palm mute it.
    TUNING: Open A with dropped bass note (A-A-E-A-C#-E)

    Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues singer-songwriter and musician. His landmark recordings in 1936 and 1937 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that has influenced later generations of musicians. Johnson's shadowy and poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend, including the Faustian myth that he sold his soul to the devil at a crossroads to achieve success. As an itinerant performer who played mostly on street corners, in juke joints, and at Saturday night dances, Johnson had little commercial success or public recognition in his lifetime.
    It was only after the reissue of his recordings in 1961, on the LP King of the Delta Blues Singers, that his work reached a wider audience. Johnson is now recognized as a master of the blues, particularly of the Mississippi Delta blues style. He is credited by many rock musicians as an important influence; Eric Clapton has called Johnson the most important blues singer that ever lived. Johnson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an early influence in its first induction ceremony, in 1986. In 2010, David Fricke ranked Johnson fifth in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
    From 1932 until his death in 1938, Johnson moved frequently between large cities like Memphis, Tennessee, and Helena, Arkansas, and the smaller towns of the Mississippi Delta and neighboring regions of Mississippi and Arkansas. On occasion, he traveled much farther. The blues musician Johnny Shines accompanied him to Chicago, Texas, New York, Canada, Kentucky, and Indiana. Henry Townsend shared a musical engagement with him in St. Louis. In many places he stayed with members of his large extended family or with women friends. He did not marry again but formed some long-term relationships with women to whom he would return periodically. One was Estella Coleman, the mother of the blues musician Robert Lockwood, Jr. In other places he stayed with a woman he seduced at his first performance. In each location, Johnson's hosts were largely ignorant of his life elsewhere. He used different names in different places, employing at least eight distinct surnames.

    Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues singer-songwriter and musician. His landmark recordings in 1936 and 1937 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that has influenced later generations of musicians. Johnson's shadowy and poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend. One Faustian myth says that he sold his soul to the devil at a local crossroads of Mississippi highways to achieve success. As an itinerant performer who played mostly on street corners, in juke joints, and at Saturday night dances, Johnson had little commercial success or public recognition in his lifetime.
