Anyone know where to find a tab or how to play Poorboy Shuffle from Willy and the Poor Boys?

Just try to figure it out. It was the first song I figured out how to play. I start breathing in and blowing out on the 3rd and fourth holes for the main rhythm He plays. Then I slide all the way down to 7, Blow and hold the long note. Blow out on 7, suck in on 6, blow twice on 5. then I go back to the rythm. Try playing this with the song. You'll figure it out. I know this is confusing as hell, and I suck at the harp, but it sounds good to me when I play alone or along with the song.

On this note, Does anyone know what key the harmonicas Fogerty used were. Specifcally, in "Run Through the Jungle," "Graveyard Train," and "Keep on Chooglin'"? I'm looking for a new harp. My old one is in the key of C. It sounds good with the "Poorboy Shuffle", but "Run Through the Jungle" is so much lower than C.

Thanks! I have no idea about the second part... I know Zeppelin's You Shook Me uses an A harmonica, and it sounds about the same, maybe a note or two too high.

I play it on my C harp and it sounds pretty good, now if I could just get some CCR buds to play the tub and the washboard I think we could be Willie and the Poorboys

"Keep on Chooglin is a typical blues solo in the key of Emajor, with lots of flat 7ths..the key harp you need, as in all blues playing on the harp is a fourth above the home key, so an Amajor harp is used for KOC. You bend the notes by inhaling with passion on the relevant note(!)".

Hope it will help.

Thanks for "Poorboy Shuffle" explanation! I'll try it.
