Hi all,

I'm looking for a backing track for Early in the Morning by Junior Wells (Hoodoo Man Blues version) with the Buddy Guy licks etc.

Anything about?

Just for reference, I don't have a track for you.

I’ve never found a track specifically for this. I guess you want to record it or use it for busking or such?
As far as practice goes, this would be one of my most-played things. Usually when I pick up a harp it’s the first thing that comes to mind. I don’t know how many years since I started playing that intro. Occasionally I have a close listen to the record and try playing note for note. The Boz Skaggs record from 2009(?) was pretty good to play along to, as well.

Hi SuperBee,

I actually found this online:


Which is close enough, just a pity it's in G.

Have you heard Jim Liban's version? I will check out the Boz Scaggs.

Cheers, J

J Bird, I have not listened to Jim Liban's version. He is one player i have not heard much but I hear much respect for his work.
Thanks for sharing that link. G is not too bad i guess. The Boz track is in B, which is not bad for my voice. I think it is Harry Duncan on the harp.
