Off the Wall


Performance & Introduction

This week Rick and I play Little Walters great instrumental "Off the Wall." We've posted the original as well, and you should really listen to it repeatedly and get it locked in your head. It's a true masterpiece, not only for Walter's instrumental virtuosity but also for the beautiful architecture of the song. In the coming weeks we'll be dissecting the song chorus by chorus.

It's done with a C harp in the key of G.

Enjoy!

Jerry
