The Paul Butterfield Blues Band's version of "Walkin’ Blues" provides another rock beat/straight eighth groove with a strong hook. Here's the hook on the harp...

I7 = 2 2 2 2 2" or 6+ 6+ 6+ 6+ 5 or Same with Octaves

IV7 = 4+ 4+ 4+ 4+ 3'

V7 = 4 4 4 4 4+ (it's common for players to improvise from Bar 9 onward)
