Coyote String Band - "Move It On Over"
Hello again Coyotes -- I decided to go ahead and throw a recording of Hank Williams doing "Move It On Over" on the blog so that you could play along. Guitarists -- pay particular attention to the improvisational solos or "breaks" between verses. The song in the key of E so you can use the La Pentatonic on E Chart posted earlier to construct a little solo of your own.
Incidentally, as I mentioned in class, "Move It On Over" is an exact template for "Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley and the Comets, which came out about 8 years later and is often called the first rock song. Does that mean old Hank had a hand in inventing rock and roll?
