A beautiful opening riff for Whoopin' The Blues by Sonny Terry.

Study the slowed down examples in combination with
the tab, the tab should become clear then.
Notation may be a bit awkward, but this kind of
harmonicastuff is pretty undownwritable anyway..
The most important technique is:
Start on de 4 draw, and let the 5 draw in immediately.
so that 4 draw sounds like a uhm .. voorslag (in Dutch)
- translates to backfall, forefall, small bared note or
a note in anticipation. You 'll figure that out.
After that bend the 4, thereby ending the the 5.
In those three blownotes at the end of bar two
there is a tongue block on the first note, block
the 67 of the 4567 chord, pull after the note starts.
Additions, extras or corrections highly appreciated.
