Blues Mandolin: Blue Sky Blues – Mississippi Blacksnakes

Blue Sky Blues:  Mississippi Blacksnakes (Bo Carter and Charlie McCoy)

~1930 – Brunswick 7199

Another Charlie McCoy blues mandolin tune, this time recorded with Bo Carter.  I really like this tune.  Much like the other “hokum” vocal tunes that McCoy plays mandolin on, his playing stays close to the melody.  The head again starts from the V chord and follows the melody, though there is an incredibly cool turnaround in this tune.
