Hard times-very helpful

Helpful as a starting point for advanced players and a great arrangement as is for intermediate. The chords seem accurate and helped me figure out some rich sounds I couldnt decipher from the recording but it is not a transcription--few licks and fills or solos.

This is Ray Charles vocal version. I have to specify because thats actually not what I was looking for. I wanted to find the instrumental David "Fathead" Newman version with Ray Charles on piano and as leader. Theres clearly a connection between the two songs but there are significant differences as well. I would guess this is accurate because of the arrangements youll find at Musicnotes are but Im not a piano player. If its the vocal recording youre looking for, I believe Eric Clapton has a recording of this tune as well (?), this would be just what you need!
