Key to the Highway > Rhythm

Today we will begin learning the classic blues song, "Key to the Highway." I encourage you all to search out other versions of the tune, but my favorites are Big Bill Broonzy and Brownie McGhee with Sonny Terry. Pay special attention to your rhythm and tempo and make sure you take time to LISTEN. Our ears should be doing most of the work!

Have fun with it!
