Watch the Funky Charleston online guitar lesson by David Santos from 50 Bass Grooves You MUST Know

This is a 12 bar blues in D in a New Orleans style. In older groove musician's circles a dotted quarter-eighth rhythmic figure is sometimes referred to as a Charleston. It can happen on any instrument. It can be played on one chord or one note or many notes. It typically refers to the first two attacks as in the flapper music of the 20s, but this particular Charleston figure employs a major triad in its make up, which is doubled by the piano's left hand. It extends past the first two infamous hits to add a solid quarter note on beat 4. That extra note is the 5th of the chord. The kick drum also plays the Charleston figure. This is very common in New Orleans music. There is a 4 bar intro to this tune that starts on the five chord, goes to the four chord, and then stops on the first beat of the fourth measure (or the second bar of the one chord), to set up the top of the form. The more you play it the more you realize that the intro is the last four bars of the tune.
