And he told me... I didn't know nothing about how to play no guitar at all. He said "Hey, go home. Take my advice. You go home. You get that.. straight. You know what I'm talking about? Put that pick down. You think I'm scolding you? You a grown man, Hubert - listen to me!" I went home, man. I went to my basement. And I'm going to tell you something... I was thinking about what Wolf said. He said "Hey, put the pick down." I put the pick down, man. I put the pick down and started using... fingers, you know what I mean? - Hubert Sumlin, on how Howlin' Wolf introduced him to fingerpicking.

I added the "circle of 5ths" tag to it. There was one other thread tagged and probably many more we could tag that way as well.

I think the "theory/analysis" tag generally catches all of these sorts of threads.
All best,

I think I know what you're saying. The term "circle of 5ths" is very broad brush when we're talking about country blues, as is "12 bar blues" etc in the majority of cases. It's just a tendency. Uneven phrasing, variations between verses and refrains, middle eights or other breaks out of the main form occur more often than not.

Since people do use these terms, and someone asked, I went ahead and added the preexisting tag.
