See That My Grave Is Kept Clean ~ By Blind Lemon Jefferson 1927

Uncle John DGB tuned 3 string cigar box guitar and Iowa saxophone in A. 3 chord song: Am E and D. I've done a video of this classic song before, but without the harp. I could not play this one on harp until recently. I can play it well with my hands free and okay on a harp harness. 3 chords as done here: Am, E and D.

Thanks, Richard,  I need to check out the Canned Heat version.  I've been playing mostly 4 strings lately, but that 3 used here is a good old friend.
