You know, sometimes it's good to play with yourself...  whistling

Here's an old Blind Blake number, which I first heard done by Leon Redbone. I've turned it into a guitar duet for a bit of Sunday morning fun. The bass chords and lower rhythm are layed uncapo'ed in E, and the main tune is played in C with the capo on the 4th fret. This is what capos were invented for (as well as assisting vocals).

Really nice, liked your duet version! Blake's one of my all-time favorites, like the slightly more laid back, swing-ish feeling of your take.
