Dust My Broom > Performance

This week Rick and I play the great Elmore James classic "Dust My Broom." This was originally done on slide guitar but Rick plays it this time with his fingers. The harp part basically duplicates the guitar line. More hand effects - specifically "fanning" the harp.

G harp in key of D.

Great tune! Elmore James played acoustically by Rick and with Jerry on harp, this should be recorded in an album!


I love the sound of the G harp...

Wow! Love this song and this is a great performance of it!  You guys should make an album together (if you haven't already).
