I composed this 7/27/00. The chord progression for this begins like a blues and then takes a right turn that takes it away from the form. Instead of being a 12 bar form, this has a seven bar section a two bar link and a second seven bar section which echoes the first. So this is not a blues but has a lot of blues-like ideas. It's a near-blues.

The melody and its rhythm accompaniment are kind of hard to grasp at first. The melody wriggles about eel-like near the end of each section of the tune.
