In this lesson we will focus on variations of the original blues tune, "Baby Please Be True", played in the key of B-flat. Last week we studied the right-hand accompaniment pattern with some variations thrown in, now we will look at both left and right hands with a small introduction of New Orleans style piano.
Here in this lesson, you'll also find a nice intro to some New Orleans piano rhythms with simple fingering technique. This style has been used in some of the greatest songs ever written. The left-hand gives the nod to pianist such as Eddie Bo, Huey Smith, my grandfather, James 'Sugar Boy' Crawford and a bit of Fats Domino, while the right-hand knowledges the Mambo feel in the style of Professor Longhair.
Practice and 'holla' at me if you have any questions!!!
