New Lesson - St Louis Blues.

Recommended Posts

Here's my latest lesson. I know it's a been a while since I've posted them on here, but I'll try and do it again.

St Louis Blues is another of those tunes I already knew before I entered the world. My dad loved his music and listened to it loud. Written by W.C. Handy over a century ago, it makes you wonder whether Gershwin had this running through his head when he came up with Summertime.

There are countless ways to play this tune, being a 12 bar; this is the version that I wound up with. Feel totally free to change it any old way you want.

W.C. Handy - he's the guy mentioned in the first verse of Walking In Memphis by Marc Cohn.
