Darktown Strutters Ball > Chords & Bassline

We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with new sheet music, re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Corey: 

This week we will learn one the older songs in the songster repertoire, "Darktown Strutter's Ball", written by Shelton Brooks in 1917. This song is a jazz standard but was also popular with songsters such as Mance Lipscomb and others. This song is a ragtime progression in the key of C that I am sure you will enjoy. Just take your time with it and make sure the tempo is comfortable.
