This song is a study of 6th position with a nod to Rice Miller’s “Help Me” and Booker T’s “Green Onions”. Please do make note that “Help Me” was NOT played in 6th position nor am I implying that it should be. Just happens to work fairly well. The very first known recording of blues harp in 6th was played by Eddie Mapp in a Curley Weaver song called “No No Blues” on May 26, 1929. There doesn’t appear to be any other recordings of 6th until Little Walter took a one chorus chromatic harp solo in an instrumental called “That’s It” on July 23rd, 1953. 6th position is the most uncommon of  the 7 modal positions. I personally have found that there is fair amount of potential for it as a blues position and hope to convey that potential in this piece.
