Yup, an old blues classic that Jorma played with the Airplane 1969-1971. The chords in
song are different in all versions, but this tab uses the chords that Jorma teaches at
Peace Ranch, and it sounds pretty damn good compared to the live Woodstock version. You 
mix it up a little by adding 7ths here and there. Have fun with this! How can you not?!
