Dear harmonica friends,

my new Youtube lesson is online!

In this video I am talking about "Worksong" written by Nat Adderley. A very bluesy jazz standard in F on the Bb harmonica.

Here you go for additional material...
Lead Sheet + Tabs:

Backing Track:

My semester break just started...let's see if I can find a regular upload schedule now ;) Anyway, I definitely have time to add some new Skype students now. Just write me using my email address below if you are interested.

Best wishes,

bend the 5 draw down like we were talking about on the other thread.

then switch directions to 5 blow... it should pop.

Very nice.

I enjoy watching someone describe the number 1 with their thumb rather than the American first finger. Makes more sense.

It didn't make more sense in Inglourious Basterds

so would this be considered a jazz tune?

jazz typically will use a ii v I chord progression.
i see a II V I on the last 2 bars. shouldn't the G7
be a minor chord?

No, it's a secondary dominant leading to the C7. If you were writing out an analysis you'd label it "V7/V" for V7 of V.

if you click on the link it shows 4 flats. Ab major and F minor are related.
even though it shows a F7 chord in the chart. sounds minor and has a A natural.
thats my take

ok perhaps is an A flat
