Stuart Davis - Only Changing Drugs chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a simplified version that just gives the basic chord changes so that one can
play it through from start to finish. Youíll probably need to have a listen to get the
rhythm right. Thereís some lead guitar between the verses that I have not included here 
but it sounds like itís just a matter of messing about in the Eminor blues scale. Enjoy!
