Notes: HBB is a great tune for jams, an improviser’s dream. The chord structure is straightforward, and the melody is loose enough that you can have lots of fun with it. I have tabbed 3 breaks that give some sense of the range of improvisation the tune permits. To tell the truth, I threw everything into it but the cat, the sump pump, and the kitchen skillet. There is of course a danger that improvisation can descend into what I call “banjo noise” — an endless cascade of notes, often in chromatic scales, that somebody else called “a blizzard of nails” — and I tried to avoid that here. The only part of the tab you might find difficult is the pull-offs, but they should come with practice.
