This live version from Clapton Crossroads guitar festival (Album Crossroads revisited 2016) is a shorter and a faster version than the previous ones... It's mostly a "A major" scale using the octave, with standard tuning, all the way through... with variations here and there... Good for impro ! This work is only a guide and my version... but hopefully it could help to learn it and getting it right in the end...Enjoy and rate !!Thanks

Hi there,
Saw that you have added a few new ones recently and as usual it's good work and you made it easy to take in ... UG seem to think that I am abusing when I go through your contributions and rate the new ones I spot... but I happen to do that once in a while after having tested your tabs like this one for ex...
They should deal with their many issues on their site instead of being suspicious for nothing...
Thanks for your work anyway.
Rock on man
Sheila

Thanks for that I really appreciate...
You're quite right about your comments on UG... they certainly could pay us or reward us one way or another for the work contributors are doing "free" for their site... LOL
Hope you're doing well,
Cheers,
Bruno
