                                  Chulahoma: The Songs of Junior Kimbrough
                                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Standard



This makes me 5/5 for Chulahoma, maybe I'll combine all 5 of my tabs into
an album tab.

Like with all other Chulahoma songs, it's hard to know if this is exactly
how it's played as there is no live footage (that I could find) of it
being played. Also like other Chulahoma (Kimbrough in general, really)
songs, it's just following a certain pattern on a scale.

That being said, I'm confident in this tab's accuracy because it's
easy for me to play it this way and it sounds spot on with the
recorded version.

As for the solo, all of the notes are right but you may be able to play it
at different locations on the fret board.

Comment/message with corrections/ideas. Please rate my tab.



Key:
where # represents a fret number

#h# - hammer
#p# - pull
/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
#b# - bend from normal note up to achieve bended note.
#r# - release bend from bended note to normal note.
=== - under boxes, represents the use of a guitar slide
#b  - slight bend, a curl.
