Juke And Other Blues Harp Classics Transcribed by Glenn Weiser

Little Walter's "Juke," and some of the other solos are from my book, Masters of Blues Harp, which is available from this site.

These have been provided for educational use only and may not be used for any commercial purpose.- GW Transcription of Juke from Master's of Blues Harp Here is an explanation of the indications:
