Zz Top - Blue Jean Blues

OK, here we have a ten-bar blues in Bminor. The song is written for
two guitars. (play it very slowly, the song takes almost
four minutes to get through about 40 bars of music).

Here is the rhythm guitar:

A|-2---------0-|                                     |-2----------|
E|---------3---|                                     |------------|


As for the lead guitar, it is played almost entirely on the B pentatonic
minor scale at the seventh fret. Since the song is so slow, most people
should be able to figure it out from the recording.

I guess that should do it.

Great tab. You really don't have to play the same lead as the original. It's a really cool song to improvise with.
