David's Tip of the Day: Rock This House - Blues Standards

David Barrett Admin's picture

"Rock This House" was chosen as the swing to be on the list. It has the typical ii-V-I found at Bar 9 (replacing the V-IV-I) and guitar fills by Hollywood Fats that's so integral to the West Coast Blues sound. You can find this cut on the classic "Hollywood Fats Band" CD and has some great vocals and harp by Big Al Blake (there's an interview with Big Al on BluesHarmonica.com if you want to learn more about him and Hollywood Fats).
