The blues can be a major-sounding music or a minor-sounding music. This piece blends both the minor blues, which is a typical sound, with the major blues, where the major 3rd gets as much melodic significance as the minor, and where the scale differs as well. The minor pentatonic blues is I-bIII-IV-V-VII, and the major is I-II-II-V-VI. The title refers to the structure of the piece, where the "turnaround' or the last four-measure phrase of the blues form is repeated each time, giving some more length and time to fit in a minor turnaround on the first time through, and a major one on the repeat. As a little kicker to the contrasts, the piece ends with a cadence in the minor blues. The left hand treatment is not the usual boogie blues figures one often finds in intermediate piano blues. It is meant to more directly simulate the action and sound that a rhythm guitar would use, with an open fifth on the beat, and a single bass note off the beat. Even the motion of the pianists' hand is like the pick-stroke of the guitar, with the alternating thumb, and the constant left- hand fifth finger throughout. Approx duration 1 min 30 secs. Shuffle is like swing, only more pronounced. Listen to the audio sample to get a solid sonic concept of the Blues Feeling! .
