I've seen a lot of bad tabs of this song so I tried to find it by ear myself and I got to 
interesting enough to post it here.

Johnny played thousands of different way so that's just one of 'em. :)

This is my first tab, and it's incomplete for now but I'll update regularly as soon as I 
out another part of the tune.

                             BOOM BOOM - John Lee Hooker
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Don Cortizone
Email: w0onka@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Note 1: All bars are in 4/4, I think it helps figuring out the rhythm since its a lot of 
fast notes on different speeds.
