Pony Blues is one of the themes you can hear in many variations. Some classic versions are Charley Patton's "Pony Blues" and "Stone Poney Blues", Tommy Johnson's "Bye Bye Blues", and not to forget Willie Brown's "M&O Blues". The pony that is probably best know today is Big Bill Broonzy's "Hey, Hey", made popular recently by Eric Clapton's recording of the song on his Unplugged album.

If you, as me, like Big Bill Broonzy's "Hey, Hey", there are at least two sources. The first, and in my opinion the best, is to turn to the original. The song is transcribed and analyzed in Woody Mann's book/CD set on Big Bill Broonzy's.

The other option is of course to get the transcriptions of all the songs on Eric Clapton's Unplugged album.

For other versions of this and more classic blues, I recommend:
