How Long Has That Train Been Gone?
audio link 12 bar blues in F. Round 140 bpm. It was the first Fess tune up on the site. It's simple, but it has taughe me more about the blues than any other piece I've played so far.
  • Bass:
    The bass is playing two dotted quarters and a regular quarter on beat four. First note is F, then A, then C. Typical simple New Orleans.
  • Rhythem:
    The general rhythem trick here in this 12 bar blues is that all the I chord and IV chord measures start with two eight notes that jump from a low c note to a high d. Then the come down starts with a slide from an Ab to an A then F D and back to the low C. Every measure. Get those notes down and you can use that for every measure except the one where you are pounding the four c chords I'll explain below.

    When you go to the IV chord in measure 5, instead of jumping low c to hi d, just use the d to hi d. Because the four chord is a Bb and d is in that chord.

    As I'm learning blues, I'm finding most blues turn arounds seem to start on the V note. So since each measure of this song has a turn around and the song is in F, the rhythem starts on the C. And then jumps to the high d and comes back down

  • Hook:
    This song has a little kick for the V chord. You gotta pound five quarter notes when you hit the V (a C). Then there's a no-chord bit for measure 10 and one F and Three C's in measure 12. So from measure nine:
    (chords)
    9:   C7      C7      C7      C7
    
    (notes)
    10:  D       C    G# A F     D   C   
                 SinceMy baby    got on 
    
    (notes)
    11:  F       D    G# A F    D   C
         board
    
    (chords)
    12:  F       C       C       C  
    
    

So that's the trick. But now, there's more... there's a recording! I recommend this real version or go for the 27 meg WAV file.
