Uh-huh! That's what often done in bar 11, but could be done in bar 1 too, I guess! A blues with no tonic anywhere - cool! (But hardly "blues" any more, IMO...)

Thumbs up It's In The Right Hand Rhythm Technique !

| C | F | C | C |
| F | F | C | C |
| G | F | C | C |

Oh, the possibilities!

Hey there mr.beaumant :

Right out of my Keith Wyatt Jump Jive & Swing Videos !

I had been searching these types of arrangements for playing
west coast jump/blues , jump/swing & swing/rock-a-billy .

The Freddy Green approach was really a major revelation to me ,
Keith Wyatt explained it so clearly and easily for me to beginning
to understand and approach doing .

Beside the four & three not triads , the rhythmic consistency in your right
hand's constant time keeping is the key to keeping the flavor/groove going
at all times .

EZ :

Don't forget you have to have someone scrubbing around with brushes and a seriously demented bass player behind you to make the transition complete

Hey that's my favourite scale! The half-demented scale. (The wholly demented scale is obviously twice as cool, but it's tough to keep track of...)

Q. How many bass players does it take to change a light bulb?

A. None. The pianist can do it with his left hand.

(Nice playing above, btw. I can't help feeling Substitute Teacher Blues needs some lyrics...)
