David's Tip of the Day: Born in Chicago - Blues Standards

David Barrett Admin's picture

Another tune with a strong hook by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. The hook is presented below, but harp players don't commonly play the entire hook, just the last two notes (same pattern as the common Charleston rhythm, but with straight eighths for this rock beat).

I7 = 1 2" 2' 2 2

IV7 = 2 3' 3 4+ 4+

V7 = 3" 4+ 4' 4 4
