Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: St. James Infirmary
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: St. James Infirmary
I sing it in a high, slow, lazy, curvy blues way, letting the melody vary more as the verses go along. Like some women sing Summertime. It's be moanin' if it was lower; this is nearly a whine. With a slow and sad electric autoharp walkin' along quietly just after the beat and taking a louder turn on its own, real strong about halfway through. With a good bit of reverb. The lowest tones, amped, are pretty spooky.

Of course that's only when I'm home alone.
