Easy > St. Louis Blues Chorus

In the fourth chorus of "Easy" I play The St. Louis Blues. As always, fix the melody in your mind. Some trickiness here in going from bend to bend in adjacent holes. You'll have to be precise in your bends.

When I play the one hole blow I'm straight lip pursing. No tongueing or ta-doo effect.
