Subject: TAB: Uncle Same Blues by Hot Tuna

Unlce Sam Blues  -  Hot Tuna
                   from first album, recorded live Sept. 1969

               written out by Jim in Cleveland

This is only my impression of the song.
I?m not able to transcribe Jorma?s fingerpicking fills or solos.  The
tab below is designed to give the rhythm of this 12 bar blues in A, by
using your pinkie to add a rhythm note to the A and D chords.
