De_Bunk sent me this missterpiece a while ago.

Forgive me if me memory and speelings are incorrect.

I may have posted this before.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

But that's not blues, even blown on a harp, and the cheap tonality changes are an insult to music! :x

My chromatic harmonica broke while I was attempting to learn this. :(

I recall watching an interview with Larry Adler, who recounted meeting George and Ira Gershwyn as a young man. George asked him to play the Rhapsody in Blue but Adler wasn't good enough to hack it at the time, so he said "I don't like the rhapsody."

Ira wisecracked, "Say, George, we've found somebody who doesn't like the rhapsody!" :)

Does bluegrass count as bluesy?
