Juke And Other Blues Harp Classics
Transcribed by Glenn Weiser

littlew.gif (8437 bytes) Little Walter's "Juke," and some of the other solos are from  my book, Masters of Blues Harp, which is available from this site. However, the system of harmonica indications in the printed version differs somewhat from my original  manuscript versions, which appear here.  These have been provided for educational use only and may not be used for any commercial purpose.- GW
