Capo
3rd fret
Black Jack Mama by Townes Van Zandt
Capo 3

When you play E strum without any fingers on the fret then quickly place
your fingers down and strum a few times to make the same sound he does. And
that single note he plays after every once in a while is on the e string
fret 3.

the strum (something like this)
e|--0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-| 
B|--0---0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-|
G|--0h1-1-1-0h1-1-1-2-2-|  repeat
D|--0h2-2-2-0h2-2-2-2-2-|
A|--0h2-2-2-0h2-2-2-0-0-|
E|--0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

During the line "Roll me over easy mama, roll me over slow" he does a few of
the things you when you play with E except do it with A
