Late intermediate players will find that Brawl on Duval Street is an exceptionally impressive performance piece! The boogie-woogie left hand is easier than it sounds, and the punchy right hand adds to the excitement, especially when the quartal chords come in during the middle section! In Key West, Florida, Duval Street is where all the action is (James lives just over a block away from it) and this world-famous 12-bar barrelhouse blues really describes the activity of this small island resort town.
