The "Father of the Blues," William Christopher Handy (1873-1958), was the first blues composer, and most music history scholars believe that The Memphis Blues was the first notated blues song in history. This arrangement was created using the original published sheet music from 1913, now located in Duke University's Historic American Sheet Music collection. As the chart unfolds, more modern elements are added but the unique character of the original is always present.
