Tishomingo Rag by Alan and Karen

Tishomingo Rag by Alan and Karen

At the Saturday Session today Alan played an uptempo version of Tishomingo Blues which he calls the Tishomingo Rag (in the Key of G). For those who missed it, want to try to play along, or just want to hear it again, this is an earlier video he made of the song.

Everyone's welcome!
