Jimmy Herring - Scapegoat Blues tab

ďScapegoat BluesĒ
-Jimmy Herring

Okay, Iíve figured out some parts of this song.  The guy is a magician with the
fretboard though so Iím sure Iím not 100% on any of it.  Iím sure my fingerings and articulation
is different from his so I suggest learning this any way you can.  Itís a pretty tough 
tune. I know he uses a mix of Bb Blues and Bb diminished scales.  Hereís what Iíve got so
far.  Feel free to email with thoughts, corrections and additions.
Thanks! (and good luck...)

The first section is in 4/4 time and then switches to 6/4 when the diminished vamp starts.

Section A:

G|--3-3---3-1---------------3-----|-3-3---3-----------3-----------|

Play this part twice:

e|----------------------------|---------------------------6-9/|
B|----------------------------|-------------------------6-----|
G|---------------------6------|---------------6-----6-7-------|
D|-8---8-6---8-6-------------6\5----5/6-9-8-9---8-9-----------|
A|---------8-----8-7-8---7-8--|-------------------------------|
E|----------------------------|-------------------------------|

e|/10-----9-7----------------------|---------------------------6-|
B|----6-9-----8------9-----6-8-----|---6-8-----------------6-8---|
G|--------------7--------6-----7---|-9-----7-6---------6-7-------|
D|-------------------------------9-|---------------6-8-----------|
A|---------------------------------|-----------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|-----------------------------|



e|-7-6-9-7-6-----6-------6---------|-----------------------------|
B|-----------8-6---9-7-8-----------|-----------------------------|
G|-------------------------8-7-6---|---6-9-8-7-----6-------------|
D|-------------------------------8-|-6---------9-6---9-5---------|
A|---------------------------------|-----------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|-----------------------------|



He then goes into a Blues/Gospel vamp.  Iím pretty sure this part is mostly improv.
Either way I will see if I can get it tabbed in the near future.

The chords are:

||  Eb9  | Bb7  |  Eb9  |  Bb7  |

|  Eb9  |  Bb7 -  G7#9  |   Cm7 -  Eb/F   ||


Then back to the Bb Diminished chord vamp.


Thatís all I have so far.  Let me know what you think!
