Jackson Joe – Blaze Of Glory tab
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (William Vaughan) Here's my favorite Joe Jackson tune, as close as I can get it. I'm not sure about the G/A and G/B in the chorus, but I can't find anything else close. I believe the rest is right after seeing Joe a couple of times in 91. Listen to the tune to get the struming pattern down - its not as easy as it looks. Correct as needed.
