Was always one of my favorite tunes on the Little Charlie and the Nightcats album Shaddow of the Blues. Great harmonic playing and blues guitar, both on the original and here.
Thanks Brian - I kinda forgot it was on Shadow of the Blues! I'll have to go back and listen. I'm glad you like it!
I think we are playing an A harp in the key of B, are we not. Header keeps saying A harp in key of D (12th pos ?),
I will make sure that header gets changed...thanks for the head's up!
Wondering whether or not the guitar part of this really is in key of F minor? At several jams I've attended, a harp player I know will often ask to play Help Me in E minor (but still is using A harp in 2nd position). I've always thought the original Sonny Boy version was just F, although because it uses a variant of the Green Onions riffs I can see why someone might have concluded that it was F minor rather than F.
is Help Me really in a minor key? Some of the harp players at jams I attend want to play it in E minor.
Seems likes Just a Fool uses 12 bars on the Intro and instrumental break, but has an 8-bar structure for the vocal verses. Is that correct? If so, what are the chord patterns on the 8-bar verses compared to 12-bar Intro?
Great lesson - thank you
