Level III - This song will help you to gain command and undersanding of the famous 2-bar, straight eight groove, known either as the "Hambone" or "Bo Diddley" groove. Most often this groove is played as 1-chord blues.  This piece is in the 12-bar form with a long V (five) and no turnaround is actually not a common blues form. The most important thing is to get the groove going and get the band locked in the 12-bar form. You should not even start playing until you can "mouth" out the groove. Record yourself doing it before you start learning the harp parts. You sould also learn to give the band finger signals as to what the chord changes are and be prepared to play the 1st chorus over again until the bankd is locked into the form and groove with you. Instruction set includes 36 tracks and 11 instruction sheets.
