Discussion in 'Music' started by music77, Aug 29, 2011.

  1. Other than 'This Old Hammer', what other vocalblues work songs OR/AND general Blues songs are also appropriate for year 7's to sing. Simplicity is what im kind of looking for.

    Hi, you could try making up your own words with a 12-bar blues simple accompaniment? How about some Spirituals also and/or Google "work blues songs".

    Unfortunately a lot of blues songs are quite sexual in content - but you could use

    I Got My Mojo Workin'

    You ain't nothin but a Hound Dog

    St Louis Blues

    Hope that helps
