Hound Dog

 Lots of folks showed up on Saturday! We spent the first hour jamming together in the BIG room. We then broke up into two smaller groups. I had to split my time between the two groups, but I admired the cooperation of folks to getting down and working out their respective jams. I talked to the Freight and hopefully we wont need to break out into the smaller groups again -- on the first Saturday of the month we have a small scheduling snafu where a class that officially starts at 3pm needs access to the BIG room to set up early. I am asking them if they can start their class at 3:30, thus allowing us to continue our jam uninterupted.
At the end of the jam I introduced the song, "Hound Dog" to one of the groups. We were playing a rumba rhythm in my "Grooving the Blues" class and when I looked for a good rumba rhythm for the jam, BOOM!, I ran into "Hound Dog" I find the rumba rhythm fun to play, with lots of cool rhythmic guitar possibilities. Big Mama Thornton and Buddy Guy playing Hound Dog.
