This is a great song to jam with, I'm only going to tab out the main melody, as the rest
the song is solo improvisation.

All right, that's the main melody, remember to hybrid pick FIG. 2 when you play the D
B together. To improvise a solo over it, follow this pattern for the scales, you can use the Blues Pentatonic:
Bb7 for four measures
Eb7 for two measures
D7 for one measure
G7 for one measure
C7 for four measures
If you're familiar with the song, you'll easily figure it out. Any questions feel free
PM me or e-mail me, addresses are at the top.

| b  bend
