For each term below, I have to leave it up to you to memorize a workable definition, and to understand the term fully by studying the lecture notes around it.

Listening items Bessie Smith, “St. Louis Blues” Blind Lemon Jefferson, “That Black Snake Moan” Robert Johnson, “Crossroad Blues” The Carter Family, “Gospel Ship” Jimmie Rodgers, “Blue Yodel no. 2” George Gershwin, “I Got Rhythm” Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, “New San Antonio Rose” Hank Williams, “Hey Good Lookin’” Louis Jordan, “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” Muddy Waters, “(I’m Your) Hoochie Coochie Man” Big Mama Thornton, “Hound Dog” Bill Haley, “Shake, Rattle and Roll” The Chords, “Sh-Boom (Life Could Be a Dream)” Elvis Presley, “Mystery Train” 2.

And you will need to be able to figure out what the right answer is, and sort it out from the 'distraction' of several wrong answers.
