Here's a little tribute to the great blues harmonica genius Little Walter Jacobs. A duo version of his groundbreaking hit Juke (my own version, not a note for note cover - I think little Walter would appreciate that more). I'm using a Greg Heumann Ultimate 58 Mic (http://www.blowsmeaway.com) which I proudly endorse and the guitar player is the great Manny Fizzotti! Hope you enjoy!

I really liked that you played it acoustically and didn’t play it note for note. I doubt Walter ever played it the same way twice!

Superb! I love the fact that you didn't just replicate, but remade the song. You started with the familiar head, but then you went off and did your own thing. This is much truer to the spirit in which, I gather, LW himself actually played the song. You got the flavor but cooked your own dish. Walter would appreciate that.

I also liked the way you brought the volume down late in the game, and then brought in the head again.

Excellent on all counts.
