Freddie Freeloader by Miles Davis, a jazz/blues tune

The first tune we'll learn. It's a 12-bar blues with a standard blues chord progression (almost). 
Miles Davis

Freddie Freeloader
"Freddie Freeloader" is a composition by Miles Davis and is the second track on his album Kind of Blue. The piece takes the form of a twelve-bar blues in B-flat, but the chord over the final two bars of each chorus is an A-flat7, not the traditional B-flat7 followed by either F7 for a turnaround or some variation of B-flat7 for an ending. Davis employed Wynton Kelly as the pianist for this track in place of Bill Evans, as Kelly was something of a blues specialist.[1] The solos are by Miles Davis,John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Paul Chambers, and Wynton Kelly
