Music and Lyrics by Philip Groeber
Late Elementary

The lyrics to this 12-bar blues tune draw attention to the fact that if you want a new guitar for Christmas, you’d better be practicing, a lot! A blues shuffle in the key of G major, this song “swings the eighth notes” and includes several eighth-note triplets for good measure. Most of the melody is on strings 1, 2, and 3 using many open strings. Power chords with no open strings are used both in the melody and the chord accompaniment part. There are optional riffs included to either take the place of the power-chord accompaniment section or played by a third guitarist.
