I love this old Jimmy Reed classic… and though you might know it done by Gary Moore, it lends itself to playing acoustic and singing along, accompanying your own voice.

So I thought I’d take some time today and show you how I like to play it when I’m performing it in this fashion.

Hope you enjoy and try it out for yourself today.

      Paul Butterfield’s version is also terrific. It is graced by an amazing solo by (then) young guitar phenom Buzzy Feiten. Thanks Griff.

      Jimmy Rogers is correct. He was Muddy’s guitar man in the ’50’s.

      I am sure the train thing You did is also done by SRV in his tune Pride and joy . Just do not bend the E string it just does not sound correct . Get that neck tweeked a bit and it will be fine or hang it by its neck when not using it and that works too . I did that for years with my acoustic and did a electric bass that way to but also backed off on the string tension . A good tune for the porch .

      Hi Griff, is it possible to post the tab

    • Barrty Butler

      Hi Griff, could you please put the tab up. Thank you


      So much fun. Thank you.

      Oh by the way. I just looked it up. I think it was created by Jimmy Rogers originally. I like the gary Moore version but I honestly like yours best. Keep em coming you’re awsome.


      So much fun. Thank you.
