Smokestack lightnin’   howlin’ wolf (aka Chester Arthur Burnett)

============================================================================


An early song from howlin’ wolf styled after his heroes early delta blues style.  The
song consists of two guitar riffs; the song opens with the first riff played 4 times then
second riff then the first again with a  blues (harp) harmonica instrumental just after 
two. And there are some root notes thrown in from time to time it sounds about right.

I remember seeing a video with Hubert Sumlin', and this he said it should be played in open position, so how I do it:

e |-0-3--------------------------
B |----------3-------------------
G |------2/4---4-2-0-------------
D |-------------------0----------
A |------------------------------
E |----------------------0-------

and riff 2:
e |-0----------------------------
B |---3------3-------------------
G |------2/4---4-2-0-------------
D |-------------------0----------
A |------------------------------
E |----------------------0-------


Cheers :)
