Jackson Stomp – Charlie McCoy – Mississippi Mud Steppers

I am currently learning the Jackson Stomp and I have collected some information about this tune.

The Jackson Stomp has been recorded in the 1920s by Charlie McCoy and the Mississippi Mud Steppers.

Playlist Jackson Stomp

A nice version with mandolin:

I have found another video of the Jackson Stomp from the discussion in the Mandolin Cafe forum. In this case it is a song with the title That Lonesome Train Took My Baby Away which uses the Jackson Stomp played on a mandolin banjo to accompany the song.

I also recently recorded this same tune, but the other version which Charlie McCoy also recorded titled, That Lonesome Train Took My Baby Away.

I have collected some other videos of the Jackson Stomp in my playlist.

What is interesting with this tune is that it is a shortened blues scheme of 11 measures, a fact that makes this tune a little bit special. However some versions that I have found have made a normal blues scheme by adding another measure – for me the original version is more interesting.

I have not found sheet music or tabs for the Jackson Stomp. TABs can be found in the Mandolin Pickers Fakebook, but this version does contain some errors – so if you use this TABS you should listen to the tune and make the necessary corrections.
