I had a lot of money at one time but nightlife, and whiskey wrecked my life. #to make it sound better, you could play it as a standard blues, 12 bar progression. The appears to be playing a regular blues underneath what the guitar does. The recording I is somewhat muddy in terms of that, but this is what it sounds like to me. | / slide up | slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===============================================================================
