Nobody tabbed this in the right tuning, so here it is. J Ho's playing bass here. This
tab is in C, but it's actually in E tuning, great blues song with Billy Gibbon (bearded
rabbi-looking chap from ZZ Top). I
love this song, enjoy

wouldnt it have made sense to actually tab it in E rather than say its in E then tab it in C?
