I'm an amateur vocalist, mostly blues, R&B, classic rock and country - as long as you know it's got soul. I play harmonica by ear and I find things on guitar, also by ear. I have no formal training and don't know what those letters and notation means. But, if someone starts playing, I can quickly find the right key, jam and improvise. I know when to stop playing or singing and let others take over. I only play what I feel. Here's a list of songs I think I cover well:

Guilty (Randy Newman)
When I Paint My Masterpiece (Dylan, The Band)
! Stormy Monday (T. Bone Walker, Bobby Bland)
Turn On Your Love Light (B. Bland)
