About this tab version
This version uses simpler chord structures and is a unique live version that has not yet been tabbed. Fell in love with this version and was disappointed to not find it any where so here it is. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Shakey Graves- Bullys Lament (Live at KUTX version)Album - As Per Request 
Capo 4
Every time this man plays his songs live they sound radically different, and apparently he even rearranges the
lyrics at his whim. I Fell in love with the live KUTX version so I appropriated the only other guitar tab for 
this song and changed up the lyrics but keeping the chord structure. Please, if you have any corrections say 
so in the comments and I will update accordingly. I hope this helps. He picks a lot so the strumming pattern 
is mostly interpritive to you.
(Taken from comment on the other guitar tab) The lick is on the (B) string, 3, 1 then open, and then (G) 
string 2nd fret. (this way sounds much more like Shakeys version, even though shakey does it in Open D tuning)
