I thought it might be fun to see what songs the musicians here play that are either AAB songs themselves, solo effort songs, or songs that they’ve covered. Some of the covers are funny in that I’m sure that along with myself, a lot of us were playing them before the ABB covered them, such as All Along The Watchtower or Feelin’ Allright.

This is not a competition, by any means, to see who plays the most ABB related songs. That would be moronic and take all the fun out of it make it. Some folks may just hang around the house may only play a song or two and that’s great!

A little background on the ones I do/have done: Currently I play with both my Blues Band as well as doing solo acoustic gigs. The two are quite different obviously and not too many songs land in both theaters. Queen of Hearts, for instance, is only on my acoustic set, while Same Thing is only with the Blues outfit. Also, some songs I haven’t played in years. Liz Reed I originally played in a band named “Fungus” (We were the band that grew on you! HA! HA!), my high School Band.

Here are some of mine that come to mind at the moment.


1) Blue Sky

2) Queen of Hearts

3) Melissa

4) Stormy Monday

5) Southbound

6) Whippin’ Post

7) Ain’t Wastin’ Time

8) Liz Reed

9) Done Sombody Wrong

10) Same Thing (we do it in.. Am..:-O )

11) Going Down Slow

12) Back Where it All Began

13) One Way Out

14) Goin’ Down The Road Feelin’ Bad

15) Will the Circle Be Unbroken

16) Heart of Stone

17) Hot ‘Lanta

18) You Don’t Love Me

19) Jelly Jelly

20) Let Me Ride

21) Little Martha (in standard tuning)

22) Long Time Gone

23) Ramblin’ Man

24) Rain

25) Statesboro Blues

26) Seven Turns

27) Soulshine

28) Johnny B. Goode

29) Key To The Highway

30) The Sky Is Crying

31) Feelin’ Alright

32) All Along The Watchtower

33) Midnight Rider

Up front - I'm a hack! I can find very few players willing to stoop to my level, so I don't have too many folks to jam with . I do have a Fostex 8 track recorder. At least I can play with myself!

Anyway:

1. Melissa - probably the closest I get to actually getting an ABB tune right.
2. Blue Sky - I segue into this from Melissa. Laugh, but it works. I can't play lead, though.
3. Midnight Rider - I do a "back porch" version in D. Probably close to correctly.
4. Whippin' Post - I do an un-plugged version. No where near correct, but you can tell what it is.
5. Statesboro Blues - or Leopard Skin Pillbox hat, depending on which lyric I start howling first. I-IV-V. Works with most any blues lyric!
6. Southbound - I think. My neighbor's dog usually takes over on vocals when I play this.

I can also play a version of Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad. Pretty good on the rhythm on that one. I am best known for my killer version of Red River Valley -thanks, Mel Bay!


Damn! I just realized that in my Blue Sky/Melissa hack job, Blue Sky comes first.

A typical ABB "Living room set" playing either with friends or just by my lonesome to unwind would be:

Blue Sky
Midnight Rider
You Don't Love Me
Wasted Words
Come and Go Blues
End of the Line ( This is the song that usually gets people to stop talking and pay attention, either in the living room or onstage)
Revival

Change to open tuning (D or E)

Statesboro Blues
Don't keep me Wonderin'
Done Somebody Wrong
Pony Boy
Come in my Kitchen
Little Martha

Mean 'ol World
Down Along The Cove
Waitin' for a Train

By this time, most friends or peeps in the crowd have had enough ABB and start yelling out for things they can sing ( Usually girls,... Eagles, Tom Petty, Steve Miller...etc.) depending on my mood, this is when my guitar goes back in it's case and I either leave or just watch...

I play lots of those already listed when ever I get the chance...

Here is me - on the left - playing "Loan Me a Dime" last March with the great Junior Mack at the Beacon pre-show party along with Dana on drums. Great time of course! So great in fact that the Hotel won't let us do it anymore...

Can someone explain how the legal ramifications, copyright issues, royalties, etc. work when playing covers? Curious about all of this as I’ve a lot of conflicting info. Thanks.

That's fantastic!

I wish they wrote Smoke On The Water, then I could say I know how to play an ABB tune.

Sure!

Bars that offer live music or jukeboxes have to pay an annual fee to cover the royalties of the music that is being played. I'm a bit out of touch, but in the mid 1990's it was around $5000.00 and that went to BMI and ASCAP.

As far as playing it at home, no royalty is due.

Recording it however, a royalty is to be paid to the auther for every cd sold.

I've heard the same thing- not sure of the amount, and afterall, who really enforces it, but I think it's BS that a bar should have to pay that much just to have bands. let's face it, most bar bands play covers. Bars that have bands, in my area, are becomming few and far between and that's probably the reason why.
I'm all for royalties when it comes to record sales and not selling bootlegs but this seems to take it a bit too far.

Bear in mind that the fee covers not only live music, but also jukeboxes, or DJ's (no I don't frequent DJ bars), or if they play their own music. The alternative is to have a bar playing muzak that's piped in.

Bar owners do hate it, but it outweighs the alternative.

On another note on the subject, myspace requires all posted recordings on music sites to be owned by the authors themselves. In other words, on my site, I can only post songs that I wrote.

That's what they say anyway. The reality is that there are quite a few bands and performers that have covers of other artists on their sites.

My guess is that until some band/writer raises a stink, they'll turn their heads the other way. As it is, it's free advertizing for the originals. So, unless someone says something is theirs, when in fact it is someone elses, I doubt anything will transpire.

In my old rock band in Tampa we would drift into Mt. Jam once in awhile...my "jazz-like" trio is working up Liz Reed, but not trying to sound like ABB...something a little different. Last rehearsal we got all the way thru it without stopping, but it'll be later before tis tightened up...funny, that's all except for noodling around on this or that riff sitting on the couch.

you wouldn't think that if you wrote them and that was your income stream.

the public performance fees have always been there, the decrease in live music venues is due to changing tastes - DJs, recorded music mostly, and competition from dvd, internet, cable TV all the other entertainment choices.

good bands still draw, always have always will. those who want to play find a way.

Harry Fox Agency "enforces" the recording mechanical fees and is the lead dog in anti-bootlegging efforts. As stated by others ASCAP and BMI - who collect publishing and public performance fees for songwriters - collect for radio, sheet music, and PP.
