    Yup, 19 alright. I know of a 13 bar blues. And there's probably no sense trying to count bars in a John Lee Hooker song.

    Reminds me of one of my favorite Lightnin' Hopkins quotes. Lightnin' was playing some blues with the fellas from ZZ Top and when the first change came, Lightnin' didn't change. He stopped and and looked at the band and Dusty Hill pointed out, "Well, Lightnin', that's where the second change is supposed to be, right?"
    And Lightnin' said, "Lightnin' change when Lightnin' wants to change."
