Toil and Trouble - 12 bar blues in G

Rock riffing G-Blues (Saxes A-Blues) Chord Chart
These are not particularly jazzy blues chords, because this tune is not like the rest of the more jazzy stuff John Cameron played on the album Trouble Maker so these chords are more basic rock blues chords. No dim chords or weird subs. Tell me if you have any better chords.

Set the Chord Chart to Blues in G

Leon will play one tone out, in F and alto players will play this blues in E. As Charlie Parker once wisely said, "I'd rather play flat than out of tune".
