This is the plan

and it is very simple. For this you have to take a Fats recording, and if you don’t have one, but that’s hardly to believe, buy one, play it, enjoy both listening to the music and reading this website, and forget your troubles for a while (crisis, what crisis?), because that’s one of the strengths of the music made by New Orleans artists and especially by Fats Domino.
