And Everyhting, in my opinion is pretty much right, there might be a few mistackes but
I don't think that there are. I tabbed this because I haven't seen anybody tab it before
so her it is. Have fun! From Ben P.S. I'm only twelve years old but Cream is my all time
favorite band! No, I did not copy this from a book.

Bend The 8th fret note up with your first finger only a little bit to give it some
flavor. Let all of the Open string notes ring when playing the lead break.

After the solo it just goes back to the normal song. You will probably be able to
figure out the rest becouse it is just like the beginning and the verse. That's it, I
hope you like it!

Sorry to be such a corrective fart, sempri fi, but it was originally written by Willie Dixon and made famous by Howlin' Wolf.
