Lesson description: For me, blues starts with Robert Johnson and goes in all directions outward. I know that more qualified blues scholars could trace it back more accurately--I can only speak for myself!
I find this tune specifically interesting as it's the most Leadbelly-ish of his original recordings. It's a 12 bar structure, but it has all sorts of chromatic walks and extra 7th chord substitutions. Gives it a little bit of a "Ragtime" feel.
