“Tennessee Stud” played by Doc Watson and Jack Lawrence

Doc Watson and Jack Lawrence perform “Tennessee Stud.” From the DVD “Legends of Flatpicking Guitar.” More info at www.guitarvideos.com

( www.youtube.com ) Long translation of Texas Flood by stevie ray vaughn ! Texas Flood is an electric blues album by blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and his band Double Distress, released in 1983. Although “Texas Flood” has three verses of lyrics, the song is more of a prolonged guitar solo, allowing Vaughan to show off his characteristic electric blues style. All through live shows, he would often play parts of this song behind his back, arousing an enthusiastic crowd response. Stylistically, “Texas Flood” is structured around the common three chord blues progression. Written and performed in the key of G (sounding F# because of Vaughan’s tuning), it is in 12/8 time, or compound time[1], which gives it a “slow burning” feel that is common in Texas blues. en.wikipedia.org

    Doc Watson is one of the greatest geniuses in the history of music. Doc Watson is one of the most gorgeous human beings to ever walk the planet earth. A right American treasure on the same level as Bob Dylan, James Brown, Johnny Cash, Mahalia Jackson, etc. How much you will be missed is incalcuable. R.I.P. you are such a gorgeous man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. wschmidgall says:

    Returned to Merlefest every year since 2003, from Kansas, primarily because of Doc. So glad I got to see what must have been his final routine, Sunday April 29.  First introduced to Doc and Tennessee Stud in 1970 (I reckon) with the first NGDB ‘Circle’ album and have been a huge fan since. A fantastic musician, a fantastic man, we will miss you Doc Watson.

  24. bieberberg says:

    stevie quote “I play like I’m breaking out of jail”. so right haha

    123 223 323 4 2 3
    123 456 789 10 11 12

    12/8 is a compound translation of 4/4 (reckon of it as 4/4 but each beat is a triplet) strong beats are 1 and 7 (kick drum) emphasis is on 4 and 10 (snare)
    hope this helped/made sense

  30. theicedman says:

    how would one count the 12/8 time? I’ve been counting in 4/4 and it seems to make sense, as in I’m able to predict the chord changes.

  31. barfzone barfy says:

  40. PegsterMcDudeson says:

    It’s because they have no taste in excellent music.
