I was thinking today while I was teaching myself to play "I walk the line" by Johnny Cash, has anyone ever done the song, using a electric, not to distort or modify the song to rock, but to make it more warm and bluesy (I don't think that is the word I want but it's what came to mind) But has anyone done it or thought about doning, and could you tell me your out comes, cause I think I'll go home and work on it on my Les Paul. So I would like feed back even if you haven't told me, tell me if you think it would be worth the time to do. Thanks in advance.

how would an electric make it more warm or bluesy? you don;t get more blues than a beat up acoustic and a bottleneck slide

Do It! I love doing REMAKES. I loved House of the Rising Sun as a lad and later when I heard it redone (Blue Cheer I think) I realized how good a remake can be.
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

Frigid Pink did a blues metal version of House, its my favorite. Way back when I did Folsum Prison blues with some nice electric blues guitar, changed the beat a little. Worked out well.

^Bob Dylan got a lot of **** for doing that. Folk purists almost lynched him (but I say screw them if they can't take a joke.)

well folk is aimed towards acoustic... i mean the i deal is an acoustic and a voice just protesting or singing whatever

so i can under purist wanting to stay with that ideal... but then theres stuff like folk metal... and that just confuses me...

my point being bob dylan is a folk artist but is not the epitome of folk

I can understand their side of it, I was just joking. I look at Dylan as being more a musical incarnation of the old beatnik poets than a folk artst. If the folkies had paid more attention to his lyrics they may not have been so quick to adopt him as their own.
