At his first performance, in the Empire Theatre in Glasgow on August 1, the audience went wild when Waller made his entrance wearing a kilt. When he sat down at the piano and swung "Loch Lomond," he had them in knots - Fats Waller tours the UK in 1938, from Spreadin' Rhythm Around, Jasen and Jones

original instrumental blues

Hey gang,
Just recorded this, a bit rough, and using my camera's mike isn't hi-fi, but here it is anyway.

Comments welcome.

That's really nice, Dave!  I especially like the moving bass under the C chord, that's really cool.
All best,
Johnm

Thanks John. It's kind of a mishmash stylisticly, with monotonic bass on the V chord and that moving line on the IV. And then I have been going back and forth on how to play the bass under the I chord - the melody lays so low that sometimes I think the higher bass note - D - muddies up the melody. I tried just playing the root, but my habit of alternating overcomes that thought. :)
