    This is generally considerd to be the original version, by Willie Cobbs (1961)



    However, Bo Diddley did something similar six years prior, in 1955



    Junior Wells in 1965. The riff and lyric have evolved a good bit since '55 and/or 1961.


    John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers in 1967



    Perhaps the best-known version, by the Allman Brothers in 1971

    My sense of this tune is shaped by the Allman Bros version but what I'm doing here is not exactly that. I don't know what I'm doing here!
    Not trying to play along with a recording. Trying to find a way to play this riff that suits me. This is okay, I think, but it's not where I want it to be. Trouble is, I'm not sure where I want it to be. I just know this is not quite it. But it's now awful either.

    This is 168 bpm. Could be faster but until I iron out the wrinkles I don't want to speed it up.
