Behind the Song

One of the real classic rhythm & blues songs from the Boz Scaggs' & Band album in 1971. Usually if I'm playing a cover, I'll try to get creative and put a unique spin on it.

In this case, I couldn't think of anything I could change to make it any better, but I still wanted to record it. 

Then I compared T-Bone Walker's original version of T-Bone Shuffle with Boz' cover version. Check it yourself if you're so inclined:

Obviously, Boz stayed true to the original version, so I thought, why can't I?

Here's Boz' version:
