Lesson notes

This instrumental from the first duet album by Stefan Grossman and John Renbourn has been a staple of my teaching since it came out, 35 years ago. It is a bluesy, ragtime, swing tune that features a chromatic, descending bass line in one section, a simple progression with a catchy melody in the second, and a lot of percussive effects in the third. Those parts are book ended with an Intro and Outro that have a couple of their own challenges. It also lends itself to a bit of improvisation.
