                                             Miss. Fred McDowell      
                                                 Blues Maker  
                                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Open G#
Capo: 1st (D# G# D# G# C d#)
YT Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4emSqXP17zM



Throw a capo on the first fret or just tune up half a step from Open G. This 
is a tab of a live version. The recorded version(s) are the same but they're 
just in normal Open G (DGDGBD). I only tabbed up to the solo. The song is 
basically the same thing over and over again. Once you get the basic structure
of the song, and see some of the unique voicings Fred has, you can work in 
some ornaments of your own.

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's 
definitely up for peer review.



Key:
where # represents a fret number


/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
=== - under boxes, represents the use of a guitar slide.
 *  - time keeper. if you played a steady
      baseline, you'd see the notes are 
      displayed in the tab in the correct 
      chronological order.
