C&A:

Intro to Edmond Hall Blues recorded with the Edmond Hall Celeste Quartet.
The plat du jour on this tune is the bass intro with Charlie Christian providing some chords in augmentation.  In addition to the guitar chords, the transcription also includes Israel Crosby’s bass part written an octave higher than the actual notes.  Crosby was a master bassist who oftentimes played between the notes, particularly on the blues, so expect some of the notation to be the closest approximation.
