Difficulty Level: Beginner Genre: R&B

With the tremendous soul explosion that occured in 1965, there was also renewed interest in that style’s predecessor, blues music. Slim Harpo, a Louisiana born blues singer/harpist, had dented the Top 40 charts earlier, in 1961. Now, in 1966 he had another chance, and he hit # 16 with “Baby Scratch My Back,” a humorous 12 bar blues. The guitarist doing the “chicken scratch” (at letter E), among other things, is Lightnin’ Slim (Otis Hicks).
