Mississippi John Hurt || Shake That Thing

I often try to turn something written for the guitar into something to do on the bari. I don't know if it really stays true to the original but I have had fun picking it for the last few days. Click the image in order see it larger on your screen.

This is old country blues, roots music style. The constant steady beat of the thumb drives the song. It frequently uses pinches. Other than that I try down-thumbs on the 1, 2, 3, 4's and up-index on the "ands" which is pretty standard to the flatpicking style. Please, if you give it an solid try, let me know what you think. Thanks, Jeff / HU

P.S. If you want a pdf of this just e-mail me.
