Diggin’: Etta Baker – Going Down the Road Feeling Bad

inDiggin'on June 9, 2016


As someone who is a “beginning blues” listener, I can’t speak much to the technical aspects of Etta Baker’s talent. If I knew better, I might discuss her melodies, rhythms, or exactly how she exemplifies the Piedmont Blues Guitar style – but I don’t.

Instead, I will simply say that this is a perfect summer driving song. Be sure to roll down the windows, turn up the volume, and enjoy this lovely tune.
