Too Much Stuff - By Delbert McClinton
Album - One Of The Fortunate Few
Transcribers: Lewie Tupper (Me), Patrick (my guitar teacher)
Revision (2)
Standard tuning, no capo. Key of G. There's a piano intro before this. 
This is all our own work. My guitar teacher Patrick (great guy), 
figured most of this out, I only made a few minor changes. There are 
some little licks at the end that I am still figuring out, but I will 
post them as soon as I do. These are the chords used throughout the 
song. The verse uses the standard 1-4-5 12-bar blues with the 5th of 
the 5th. The chorus does some wacky 4-4-1-1-5/5-5-1-1 progression. If you 
have a comment, e-mail me at stillfunny2u@yahoo.com.
The song uses these chords:
