Subject: Robert Johnson: Me and the Devil Blues


I play this with my fingers.
Sometimes I use a thumb-pick for a louder bass line.
I use at least (as a minimum size) 0.13" sized strings!
I think Johnsons guitar is in standard tuning, with a capo on
the first fret (= B flat). I play it in A.


Title:  Me and the devil Blues
Artist: Robert Johnson
