Frankie Most difficult tune or song (31) RE: Most difficult tune or song 23 Oct 99


I"m almost embarrassed to admit that it's my nick-namesakes' song, Frankie by MJ Hurt. After a quarter century I still can't quite get it right.. Something about the timing is too tricky, sounds like 5 string banjo or something. Nameless one, Give Me Your Hand is a great tune (played at my wedding) and has some big jumps in the melody. I've made an arrangement for fingerstyle guitar in G (CGDGBE) tuning and you have to start low because it gets high. If you remember who did the vocal version let me know.I'll try to track it down too. Very cool site! F
