my opinion is that the name of this thread should be changed to "Robert Johnson slowed down?".

otherwise, neat. though slightly pointless.

Welcome to bass, you'll f*cking love it
so I used Audacity to slow down Walkin Blues... it really didn't sound right, it's way too slow at 80%

Robert Johnson is still one of my favorite blues guitarists, I dont care if his stuff was sped up, but still this is an interesting topic...
I read about that on wiki a few months ago. It's pretty interesting, and I believe that it could very well be true, but I like Robert Johnson at the speed that I have him, sped up or not.
It's perfectly possible and plausible, and I actually prefer Love in Vain slowed down... it's even more haunting than the 'normal speed'.

I kinda like the slower versions as well, you can hear Skip James in there for sure.
Don't be derivative. Explore...
I tried it, don't think it really effected my enjoyment of his music much, to be honest.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.
