Old Crow Medicine Show – James River Blues chords ver. 2
I tabbed this song basing it off the earlier James River Blues chords listed here. I personally like this version better, and think it sounds more melancholy when performed solo, and is easier as it uses all open chords. I put the Capo on the first fret, but feel free to experiment and play around with it. I strum it with a Johnny Cash-esque one-two pattern, but feel free to try different things. Enjoy!
