--> play intrumental 1 again


And now the blues part, the base will be always this:

E A E E A A E E B A E E    (all blues scales)

so you can do any blues thing following these scales.
There is a lot of variations until the end of the song, i won't write all,
just some of the main thing. But there are all on the "blues scale", it is
easy, just check the youtube to know about this scale.
