Notes: Here is a medley of 5 songs done by the original Skillet Lickers, that wild, wacky & superb old time string band from Georgia that recorded in the 20's & 30's. The 5 songs are (in the same order as on the tab, which is no order in particular): Hell's Broke Loose In Georgia, Four Cent Cotton, Georgia Waggoner, Dixie, & The Darktown Strutters' Ball. Hell Broke Loose In Georgia & Four Cent Cotton are both simple, pentatonic songs which I absolutely love, but other's might find boring (go figure :P). The second is the SL's take on the old fiddle tune "[Tennessee] Waggoner". Dixie, of course is well known by all and makes a great bluegrass tune. The last is a pop song from the late teens, and was often done by swing groups (Django Reinhardt did it) and dance bands, and the Skillet Lickers did a nice, hot, advanced OT version of the tune. The guitar break is hot licks that contain the melody, not too hard (none of the songs here are very hard), and definitely not a swing version! Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!
