Got scars on his cheek, hair on his chin, old bloodshot eyes and he's just too doggone thin
The Ugly Jim Blues
People call me ugly, just because I look like this,
Ain't no woman but my momma who'd give this face a kiss.
How Do You Play Ugly?
- blues, blues, blues
- only acoustic
- been playing for almost 8 years now and I still know only one scale (guess which one?) and two sets of chords
- don't use a pick and never will
OK, OK, so I exaggerated. Maybe I do know a couple more chords and scales... but I really don't use a pick!
- Lightnin' Hopkins, Muddy Waters,
- Hubert Sumlin, Buddy Guy,
- Eric Clapton, Blind Blake, Blind Willie Johnson
- Lightnin' Hopkins: just about anything
- Howlin' Wolf: Moanin' in the Moonlight
- Buddy Guy & Junior Wells: Alone and Acoustic
