                           Black Snake Moan - Samuel L. Jackson
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Joel Gonzalez
Email: w4gon@embarqmail.com

My first tab attempt and since this song was the one which inspired me to 
start playing blues guitar, it's fitting. I watched the movie to get the 
correct finger positions so it's very close. Use a slide and palm mute 
where it says "muted". Through "louder" slowly increase volume until 
"full" volume.

Tuning: Open D minor (DADFAD)

                                                I aint played for 
                                                nobody in years
