JOE'S BLUES
===========
Written by Jake E. Lee

Here is the tablature for Jake's acoustic solo on Badlands' 'Voodoo Highway'.
For those of you interested in finger-picking, this will be an excellent
workout.
Notice how the moving bassline can create the illusion of two guitars.
BTW, don't try playing this with a pick unless you can adapt it for
hybrid picking.
Pay attention to syncopation and dynamics ie. know when to play loudly
and when to play softly.

TAB:
====
  h - hammer-on
  p - pull-off
  B - bend full step
  r - release bend half-step
  / - slide
(x) - x note is not picked/plucked

Intro licks omitted (I prefer to play my own ones)

* NB This bar-and-a-half phrase is quite difficult to play in terms of left
hand fingering. Here is the fingering I found most helpful (with practice).
(You may find the size of your hand or the shape of your guitar neck make
this tricky so feel free to find another way of doing it)
