  1. Great video, as always! Jim I've heard about RJ using his own special tuning for some songs, do you happen to have any videos about this? Thanks for everything I really like what you're doing on youtube!

  2. Hi – don't know a lot about this kind of thing I'm afraid, but I'll check around. As far as I know he used standard, open G and dropped d – if anyone out there know, please post it.

    I bet Woody Mann or deltabluestips will know

  4. oh man i would have loved to see that whole song you two were just doing.. Did you ever upload the whole two man jam? that was one of the best i have come across with depth

  5. i've got some old vinyl shines albums. He definitely mastered Johnson's sound. Hearing him on electric guitar with walter horton playing terraplane blues etc etc is about as good as it gets to my ears. So glad someone mentioned Shines as a way to learn RJ.And really great to hear someone play with a harp accompaniment. Thats what I imagine he did all the time back in his day..jammed with others. We just have a few recordings of Johnson that everyone religiously tries to clone note for note. I imagine he was nervous as hell on those recordings and only playing a fraction of what he could really play when he was in the zone..great vid

  6. that RJ and Johnny Shine pic has been debunked or Johnny Shines wore blouses. RJ played in standard Open E open G and dropped D like we all should be able to do.
