Milk Cows half Blues
by Bob Dylan
Chored By Russ Stone
Outtake from the freewheeling album



Open D/E tuning Capo 8th or 10th fret
(I recommend the E tuning here, otherwise it may be difficult to get the capo in place)

The thumb basically has a 9-to-5 job on the 6th string. I've indicated some of the deviations from the 
rhythm, but these might as well be disregarded: do what your fingers tells you to do (this is nothing a 
teacher would tell you, but then again: I'm not a guitar teacher). The thumb job even includes the 5th string once in a while, especially towards the end of the verse, before and after the A7. This is probably intentional.

The slide up on the 2nd and 3rd strings should, I believe, be done with the first finger (or the first and 
in order to come in the correct position for the pull-off on the 4th string.

The tab reflects the first verse. The follwing verses are almost identical.

Chords:

E7      000330 (no fifth)
A       020100
A7      020103
E7-10   000033
