Song: The Ballad Of John Henry
Artist: Joe Bonamassa
Tuning (low to high): B E A D F# B
Person Who Tabbed It: KoRny Static
Legend: x = mute that string at the designated part

This song is in a quite low tuning so make sure you're playing a guitar that can handle low tunings,
also you don't need to tune down the high E string (the thinnest string) to play this riff

B |----------------------------------------------------------------|
D |------------------7---------------------------------x----x------|
A |------------------5---------------------------------5----7------|
E |-----7--5--7-----5---7--5--7-----7--5--7-7------5----7----------|
B |--0-----------0-----------------0-------------------------------|

Note: When you're playing the part where you have to use the 7th fret of the D string 
(in normal tuning it's the G string)
make sure not to press down too hard or you'll make the note higher pitched, this 
happens with low tunings
