I just updated my teaching school website with “Salty Dog Blues.”
Here is the link:
In this video I go over the melody to “Salty Dog Blues” as well as the chord positions. This includes a pdf of the TAB, a slow video walk through of the song with onscreen TAB as well. Lastly, I teach how to put a simple D pattern into the song, creating a variation.
This is a great song to learn what are called the Circle of Fifths chord changes, chord movements in fourths/fifths. I use this as a vehicle to teach my students improvisation via plugging in licks.
