Here's my attempt to pick out the song Frosty Morning Blues. I have enjoyed listening to Tuba Skinny's performance of it.

The song dates from 1924, was recorded by the great Bessie Smith  and is believed to have been written for her by a gentleman called Eddie Brown.

I can't guess how accurate Mr. Brown would consider my attempt, but I hope it's not too far out.

The words of this blues - which requires a good lady blues singer - are easily available on the Internet.

As you can see, there is a 16-bar verse and then a conventional 12-bar blues.

You can enjoy a street performance of the song by Erika Lewis and Tuba Skinny by clicking here.
