This song is based on the 12 bar Blues progression in the key of C. Of interest is the right hand playing the flat 3rd. to the major 3rd. for each chord. Eb to E on the C chord, Ab to A on the F chord and Bb to B on the G chord, typical of the Blues sound.
The left hand is playing a Blues bass pattern alternating the notes of the 1 and 5 and 1 and 6 of each chord. A swing rhythm is used for the song.
The fingering used in the first measure is to be used throughout the piece.

For anyone learning to play the Blues, it is important to listen to the great Blues musicians which will help you in developing your Blues musical skills. I have created a Spotify playlist of over 400 Blues songs many of which greatly influenced me. Please follow the playlist if you enjoy listening to it.

I have published over 60 music educational books which are available through Sheet Music Plus or from the publisher's A.D.G. Productions website

I have openings for music students whom would be interested in lessons online, (Skype, Facetime etc.) whether for a series of lessons or a one-time consultation. My vast experience as a keyboard player/guitarist in many areas of contemporary music education would almost certainly be beneficial to the musical development of many people studying music no matter what instrument.
