Early Morning Blues
Early Mornin' is a great song to start to figure out Blake's style in the key of C. First of all, it's SLOW compared to the next examples below. It contains all the usual tricks we expect from Blake, but it's at a slow enough pace for us to work out what he does.
As is usual with Blake's work, he uses a pretty standard chord progression, whatever key he's in, and this song is no exception - he uses standard chord shapes for C, C7, F, G/G7, A7 and D7. Any variations of these chords are short lived as he progresses from one chord to the next - we discuss this in the lesson.
