    Default E is for the bluEs!

    Key of E is probably the most popular key for the blues.
    So your key of E song should be a blues song.
    Preferably 12 bar but you can go 8 or 10.
    Less than 3 minutes please.
    Two weeks to bring something along.
    Newly recorded for this challenge please.
    There will be a trivial prize.

    Does this have to be a classic 12 bar blues, or can it be a slight variation? I got one I think might work well, but it's as much rhythm and blues as straight blues.

    Cover the ears of minors - vintage smut approaching...unless you actually believe it is about a man's talent as a carpenter.

    This was first recorded in 1941 by both Tony Hollins and Tommy McLennan, but apparently it was written by Richard "Hacksaw" Harney. How that nickname is related to the song is anybody's guess.
