Here is a dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/9nnfi7jg8yq1xlt/sockhop.mid?dl=0to a midi file named sockhop.midI found this file in the early 90s, and it is what made me want to someday be able to play boogie woogie/rock'n'roll. I wished I knew something more about it like: Who performed it? Who composed it? Is it a version of some published song? (The melody in choruses 2, 3, and 6 is similar to Elvis' "It's Christmas Time, Pretty Baby"?) Where can I find more piano solos like this?
Well, after spending some time working on Arthur's Boogie Woogie book, I'm working on learning to play this "Sockhop". I'm seeing now how it's made from the Licks. For example: The pickup notes into bar 1 are like Lick #4. Bar 2 is "the lick", which occurs in 3 variations in the first chorus. Bars 9 and 10 are a variation of Track 100 in the book (Lick #8).
