                             Roadhouse Blues (live version) - The Doors
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:      Ross

Guitarist:      Robbie Krieger
Tuning:         Standard
Key:            E-Minor (Blues Scale)
Tone:           ES-Type Guitar, Neck Pickup, High Bass, High Treble, Mid Midrange,
Slight fuzz, dirty distortion, light reverb.  I use a little fender tube amp  (40W) and 
natural overdrive on that comes pretty close to what he sounds like.  If your using a 
type guitar, the neck/middle pickup with the tone knob rolled back a bit sounds good.


I don’t know which album this is from (I downloaded it), but at the beginning an 
says “from Los Angeles…The Doors,” because there are a few versions floating around out there.  
remember to rate it!
