Tuesday’s A to Z challenge: “N”
Event Type: General Blogging
Start Date: Tuesdays, recurring weekly
Description: Every Tuesday I offer the “A to Z challenge”, walking step by step through the alphabet.
Last week we had the “tagged M”-challenge, so this week we’ll create a new turn with “N” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “N”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “N”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the term “no matter”:
Often mothers of blues guitarists (I have the focus on the roots of the blues masters 1920-1940) didn’t like it, if their sons switched to blues, leaving gospel music. Josh White for example sang with a pseudonym as a blues singer, trying not to hurt his mother. At first I didn’t understand that. But then, trying to write down the lyrics of some TAMPA RED songs, I began to understand…
me, singing “NO MATTER HOW”:
I like to play songs of TAMPA RED, 1904-1981… for example the song NO MATTER HOW SHE DONE IT: “I know a girl by the name of Mae Lou / she shook it so much / she had a diamond blue.” CHORUS: “No matter how she done it / No matter how she done it / No matter how she done it / she done it just the same.” … “The copper brought her in, she didn’t need no bail, she shook it for the judge and put the cop in jail (no matter HOW she done it)… ”
