Forty Four Blues - Little Walter's Solo
Transcribed by Glenn Weiser

This harmonica solo by Little Walter Jacobs is from "Johnny Young and His Friends" (Testament 2226) an album of informal recording made in between 1962 and 1966 (To order the CD online, visit the Testament Records website). Little Walter is unamplified here, and his playing is in a solid Delta style. He makes extensive use of double notes in this solo, playing them either in octave tongue blocks or on two adjacent holes.
