Ahhh Genie....."Folkifying"!!! You have just coined a good one! Is that yours?

Well I've certainly done that a few hundred times....changed melodies, chord structures and occasionally "Waltzified"(!!) a tune.

I've been messing with that tune (Jimmie Rogers) and the various permutations for the last couple of minutes, and a Dm7 can sound very 'old timey' in that slot.

My surprise here was that it was by Greg Brown. I'd have sworn it was by some Country writer. Great job he did.
