Watch the Hunkie Tunkie online guitar lesson by Paul Rishell from Dirt Road Blues

Another one of my favorites is "Hunkie Tunkie" by Charley Jordan (Vocalion, Chicago 1930).
Charley Jordan (January 1, 1890 - November 15, 1954) was a Saint Louis blues singer, songwriter and guitarist, as well as a talent scout, originally from Mabelvale, Arkansas. Like Scrapper Blackwell, he also worked as a bootlegger, and was shot in 1928 and partially paralyzed as a result.
Jordan recorded numerous singles for Vocalion and Decca between 1930 and 1937, and also worked with Peetie Wheatstraw, Roosevelt Sykes, Casey Bill Weldon, Big Joe Williams, and Memphis Minnie. Jordan died of pneumonia in 1954.
We're in standard tuning and capoed up to the second fret. The song is in the key of E. If you listen to the original of this, you'll hear how I changed the tempo to slow it down and emphasize the backbeat more. Sometimes you need to change these songs to make them suit you. Sometimes it just takes a little; you don't have to do too much.
