Johnson Robert - Come On In My Kitchen tab

From: tron@elrayo.rhein-main.de (markus tron)

I think Johnsons guitar is tuned in open A, with a capo at
the second fret. I play it in open A.
I play this with my fingers and a heavy metal bottleneck.
Sometimes I use a thumb-pick for a louder bass line.
I use at least (as a minimum size) 0.13" sized strings!

------------------------ additional lyrics: The woman I love took from my best friend Some joker got lucky stole her back again You better come on in my kitchen babe, it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors Oh-ah she's gone I know she won't come back I've taken the last nickel out of her 'nation sack You better come on in my kitchen babe, it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors BRIGDGE: (spoken "Baby can't you hear that wind howl 'n' all? Oh-ah can't you hear that wind would howl? You better come on in my kitchen babe, it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors) When a woman gets in trouble everybody throws her down Looking for her good friend none can be found You better come on in my kitchen babe, it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors Winter time's comin' it's gon' be slow You can't make the winter, babe that's dry long so You better come on in my kitchen babe, it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors ------------------------- The above is a very easy way to play that Robert Johnson song. For a more detailed transcription I would recommend: Scott Ainslie's "Robert Johnson complete guitar transcription". It's NO book for beginners! BTW listen to Rory Block's version of that song. She's a fantastic slide player and the way she's playin' that song is worth to buy her record... AND... ... the above transcription is closer to the way she plays the song then Robert recorded it. He plays it more up tempo on the take I've got. But on the other side, I've heared about him playing this song very slow, each time playin' in front of an audience. I hope this tab's not too bad, and you folks can work with it. have fun markus PS: Any corrections or comments welcome! Any Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher or Muddy Waters tab would be very welcome! markus tron tron@elrayo.rhein-main.de blues and beyond?
