We’ll base the song tutorial off of the performance recorded on the 1966 album, Today! on the Vanguard label.

In the recording, you’ll hear a simple, free-time, intro followed by several repeats of the verse melody building to a snappy outro. You’ll have access to the note-for-note transcription as it appears on the album.

To get this great tune under your fingers quickly, we’ll focus our study on a few of the verses to help you get this tune under your fingers quickly.
