                       I CAN'T HOLD OUT - Elmore James
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: refewz

Tuning: Open D (DADF#AD)

This song by the king of slide guitar should be played with a slide, of
course. I play this acoustic or electric. Learning Elmo's licks is a great
way to pick up soloing with a slide.
