Hi All

Wonder if anybody is familiar with the Ramblin Jack Elliott version of "The Buffalo Skinners?"

I am trying to figure out his tuning and chording - having a bit of trouble. Guess the ears are not what they used to be.

Anybody have some insight on how Elliot does this song? Sure would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mark

i know that his buddy woody guthrie's version is famous for not changing chords at all - being all in g minor or something.

You can find it written out with chords and also sung by Roger McGuinn on his FolkDen site. It's keyed in Bm to suit his voice. The progression is Bm-A-G-Bm, D-G-A-D-G, D-G-A-D-G, Bm-A-G-Bm.

Jack of course, learned it from Woody who only used one chord, A minor. Jack uses two, he adds an F to the A minor.
