Songs In My Pocket

A place to post guitar tabs separately from other discussion so it doesn’t get lost in the messages. To make it easy to search we suggest starting a new thread for each song posted and include the song name in your title. We’ll be able to make a nice archive if we keep tab here and discussion on the other forums.

Songs In My Pocket

Postby davecanady » Wed Sep 29, 2010 5:21 pm

I've played bass in a rock band for 2 years. Although I had never listened to much traditional blues, I've started going to a local blues jam to improve my skills. It's a little unnerving when the drummer counts us in and all I have is the key. If there were 25 blues songs I should have in my back pocket, what would you all recommend I learn? Think in terms of songs with distinctive riffs that need to be there to make the song.

So far, I've been given the following for the locals:
Cold Shot
Pride & Joy (the bass line walks down, I didn't know that prior)
Stormy Monday (Odd modulation but beautiful)
Messin with the Kid (You know the riff)
