Worried down is a great blues song, written by Warren Haynes/Gov't Mule and performed 
often with ABB.  The chords for this song show up on only one other site but are incorrect.

The solo is in G minor pentatonic.  Neither Warren nor Derek play it the same way twice 
so just have at it with your own take.

A few notes;

Each guitar is doing something a little different.  During the verse Warren slides up 
from Gm to Am and back to Gm while Derek Stays on Gm.  Same thing with the Cm, Warren 
slides up to Dm and back to Cm while Derek stays on the Cm.

Warren will play the bottom 3 notes of both 9th chords while Derek plays the top 3 
notes.  It really sounds nice playing live when each guitar plays variations rather than the 
exact same chord.

The first chord in the intro shows a B, should be Bb.
