    When the kitchen, day, or year, is done – we toast! Based on a traditional brew, concocted by Alan Doyle, Bob Hallett, Sean McCann, and Darrell Power – aka Great Big Sea! Great Big C from Corner Brook, Allison Crowe, serves up the “Old Black Rum”.

    Newfoundland Vinyl IV



    The lovely isle of Newfoundland, off Canada’s Atlantic coast, is inspiration for this collection – the newest in the “Vinyl” series from Corner Brook, NL musician Allison Crowe.

    Allison’s in harbour with a boatful of tunes reveling in, and revealing, the region’s rich culture and history – stirring music that nourishes heart and soul.

    The album opens with Mice March and closes with Russian Dance, both selections from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” – freshly arranged and performed “trad” style for Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador’s “Ed & Ed’s Newfoundland Christmas Concert”. And between these tracks is a bounty of adventuresome musical ideas – embracing songs of land and sea.

    Traditional music, and modern favourites – funny, poignant, earthy and ethereal – all part of the “Newfoundland Vinyl” stage-show lovingly curated and directed by Allison Crowe each Summer at TNL’s Gros Morne Theatre Festival.

    The album cover photograph by Allison shows us what she sees at home making music. And the songs themselves let us feel it all, as well. Joys and hardships be tugging on the heart-line first cast by Buddy Wasisname, and true as ever: “You might think she’s rugged and cold, but she’s home, sweet, home to me.”

    Credits:

    Allison Crowe: all vocals, instruments, engineering and production.

  • How to Play Old Black Rum by Great Big Sea

    2:26

    The only recording I have of this is off of the Great Big DVD, and in that version, the guitar is tuned down a whole step. So, the strings are D,G,C,F,A,d. If you're not playing along with anything, don't worry about de-tuning your guitar becuaes the intervals are the same and it'll still sound good, just higher.

    first half is me just playing through it so you can get an idea of how the guitar sounds by itself. the second half is a close up of my hand so you can get the chord changes. Heres a rough breakdown of how the chords go:
    note: the chords fall on the word they're in front of here, rather than right before them. i hope that makes sense...so for example, the first G is played at the same time you say the word sixteen, and the C would be at the same time as the word price, etc.

    I drank (G) sixteen doubles for the (C) price of (G) one
    (C) Trying to find the courage to (A7) talk to (D) one
    I asked (e-)her for (D over F#, which is a D+ while playing 2nd fret on the low E)a dance (G)
    Not a (e-) second (D+ over F#) glance (G)
    My night had (A7) just begun (D)....

    Well I (G) drink to the father and the (C) holy (G)ghost
    (C) I'm kneeling at the (G) alter of my (A7) nightly (D) post
    So I'll (e-) raise (D+ over F#) a glass (G), not the (e-) first (D+ over F#) nor last (G)
    Come join me (D) in this (G) toast

    [Chorus:]

    Because the (D) old black rum's got a (G) hold on me
    Like a (G) dog wrapped (C) round my (D) leg
    And the (D) old black rum's got a (G) hold on me
    Will I (G) live for a (D) nother (G) day?
    (C) Hey, Will I (G) live for a (D) nother (G) day?



    thats the idea for the whole song. follw the same pattern for the rest of the verses. for the e-, D+ over F#, G part, its a bit quick and they don't all fall right on the words. give that part a listen a couple of times to catch the rhythm.

    feel free to post questions or comments!
