The thing I love about all of Gus Cannon's songs is how they would gradually increase in speed as they kept going, and nobody ever lost sync with each other! These were some incredibly talented dudes!

Love the way this plays with the 12-bar blues form. 4 bars of 1, 6 beats of 4 then 6 beats of 1, then 2 bars plus 2 beats of 5, followed by 2 bars of 1 (except the first time when its just 6 beats). Magic.

right! 11.5 bar blues... (or 11)... not that uncommon. John Hurt & others did similar 'counts'... & sometimes John played the first 8 (or 9 or 10) bars with emphasis on the ONE & then played out with emphasis on the TWO-- kind of a "call & response" effect. ^..^

Glad to hear this recording minus the echo many versions on youtube have added.

Classic! 11 & a half bar blues! 💙 ^..^
