It Hurts Me Too (Tampa Red)

Level 2/3
Open D Tuning

It Hurts Me Too is a Tampa Red classic though the original 1940 recording has little to no slide, unlike his 20’s-30’s recordings in Vestapol tuning which established him as a slide wizard. Elmore James’ reworking of the tune in 1957 gives us the slide template that most have come to know and here we find Feldmann taking that idea and then also adding a guitar break which shows how Tampa Red would have recorded the tune in his earlier years.

The Guitar of Blaze Foley

Level 2

Tom Feldmann takes you through 5 Blaze Foley tunes that will give you the inside access to how he, and his songwriting contemporaries, played the guitar. The arrangements are often simple, deceptively understated, but the fact is Blaze, and company, could play the heck out of the guitar. Volumes are taught and discussed about Foley, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, Guy Clark, etc., and their songwriting genius but very little is offered on the guitar playing that allowed for the songs to sing. Until now.

Titles Include: If I Could Only Fly, Our Little Town, Oh Darlin’, Election Day, Clay Pigeons
