Guitar 2 - Doyle Bramhall II

ok, well i got this new dvd/cd thing and this is my favorite song off of it. I was
messing around and figured it out. I plan to figure out solo 1 by Doyle Bramhall,
and figure out some of the intro and  solo by eric clapton.. enjoy!


UPDATE 5/3/05

I have added a few little extra notes at the end of the verse, later i will tab out the 
bramhall solo.

[Verse again]


Piano Break

until i get more, you should get the idea of how the song is, after it says "Back from
the land of california to my sweet home chicago" ther is a little change of pace and
then it goes back to a verse thing,then a piano break, and then the solo by Doyle, but
they layout goes like this.

Intro Riff

Riff A5 \
Riff E5  \
Riff A5   verse
Riff E5  /

Thanks for tabbing this classic, however, it is a little unusual. It looks like 12 bar blues with the exception of the order of the cords. If it starts in A (1) D (IV) and E (V) should fall in that order. From my experience Mr. Clapton sticks of the blues formate. That said, it still sounds good and the turnaround is interesting.

this a cool tab even though it says "rock" in my username i still love blues! also the blues brothers version of the song is good. i like matt guitar murphys version of playing it.
