Question for the Group, I have been learning the Bag-O-Licks and I would like to apply them to a song I am learning. I’d like to create a break for Bill Monroe For Breakfast by Tom T Hall. My question is twofold… First, Should I create the break using the Verse or the Chorus? Secondly, it uses an E7. Can I substitute an “E” instead in this instance?
Here is the chording for it…
BILL MONROE FOR BREAKFAST TOM T. HALL
(A) When I was just a little boy, we (D) lived down on a (A) farm
Seven miles from nowhere and a hundred miles from (E7) harm
We (A) made our livin’ from the dirt, if (D) anything would Agrow
And we got our country music from a (E7) big old radio (A). And;
We had (D) Bill Monroe for breakfast ev’ry (A) day
Then we’d head out to the fields, a-hoein’ corn and mowin’ (E7) hay
Aw! (A) mama loved his singin’, daddy (D) loved to hear him (A) play
And we had Bill Monroe for (E7) breakfast ev’ry (A) day.
