well its way past the holidays and I've drank the JD the mother in law gave me, so I thought I'd better peel my lazy ass off the sofa and write summat..this heres about a dancer from Camberwell (south London) who taught me the Horizontal Fandango, amongst other things.
Instrument used-Jim Mitchell 4 string reso (yes-I've learned to play an extra string!)
Mic-The Copperphone-if you're wonderin why mine aint as shiny as Shanes I got the dude that makes em to leave off the protective coating-you know me!
I didnt use the drum or lowboy-just put on my Caterpillar boots and stomped along a little ;0)
Heres the words for those that like such things-
BROWN EYED GIRL
I SEE YOU
I READ YOUR MIND
TELL YOU WHAT TO DO
COME KNOCK ON MY DOOR
I WATCH YOUR MOUTH
YOU CALL A CAB
AND GRAB YOUR COAT
CROSS THE THAMES
CAMBERWELL'S
ALL BLACK AND GOLD
COME KNOCK...
I HEAR YOUR VOICE
IN MY VEINS
UPON MY SKIN
A RAVENS CLAW
THROUGH YOUR BLINDS
THE STREETLIGHT SHINES
ON YOUR BLACK SKIN
COME KNOCK...
I SELL MY SOUL
YOU WIPE MY BROW
I TASTE YOUR MOUTH
MMMM
IN THE HALLWAY
UP ON THE STAIRS
ONE MAN DOWN

COME KNOCK ON MY DOOR.

Hi Hogs-its tuned to (fat string first) A E A Csharp ...I think! it may be slightly sharper or flatter but thats the pattern of tuning-like I say, I just turned the tuners til it sounded good.sorry it took so long to reply.

Thanks HB,

I will hope you canwork out the tuning as I am struggling. 12 or 6 string I have no probs but 3&4 leave me cold.

Hogs.
