David's Tip of the Day: Killing Floor - Blues Standards

David Barrett Admin's picture

When this song first crossed my path at a jam session I found it challenging to find a part to play that didn't conflict with the bass or guitar (two strong hooks are played). Going home after the jam and listening to what the horns and guitar played helped feed me some ideas. Here's what I play now (D harp in 2nd Position)...

I7 = 4 4, 4 4+ 3 3
IV7 = 6+ 6+, 6+ 5 5+ 5+
V7-IV7-I7 = 4/5 shake, 4+/5+ shake
Turnaround: 2 2, 2 2" 1 1
