                I'm Satisfied - Mississippi John Hurt
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Mississippi John Hurt
I'm Satisfied
(Mississippi John Hurt)

From: "Today" (1966)

A nice little tune. John Hurt has a special way of playing, a mix between 
strumming the bass strings (with his thumb) and picking the melody on the 
top strings (mostly index, sometimes middle finger, too).
I'm still not able do that, so for my tab here I transcribed it as a folk 
picking. Enjoy!

I made a recording of the song. Check it out here:

Might be a Skip James ablbum, too, after all - "Today" is not that idiosyncratic ...

But thanks for the rating!

Ha, yeah, guess there's even a bit towards the end that even explains that skip james did a similar recording process after the release of this one. But yeah, great tab dude.
