The head to "Chicken Shack", originally done by Jimmy Smith on the Hammond B-3 organ. Key of F on a Bb harp. Another head that lays well for the harp. This tune was a staple in the repertoire of almost every blues band in Chicago and it should be in yours as well. Though it sounds perfectly fine when played as ordinary amplified harp, there are pedals available that can give you an organ sound that's really cool too.Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
