    In one of my Bb song books I turned to “Move it on Over”. It’s in the Key of G for sax. So I’ll be practicing some turn arounds with the 12 bar blues. And in my other book is “Great Balls of Fire”. this one is in the key of “A” for tenor sax. So some good turn around practice tomorrow.

    Thanks saxomonica. Hank is the man. My parents had the old 78 rpms.

    cool William. what a coincidence that your 2 tunes are in G and A, same keys I used in the Turnaround lesson.
    Hank’s version doesn’t do the turnaround change up to the 5 chord at the end but you can still play the turnaround licks over it anyway. it’ll still sound good and it’s good practice for you…rock on!

    “At The Hop”. There seems to be multiple turn arounds in the rock song “At The Hop”
