Dust My Broom Tab

Song: Dust My Broom (Lyrics and Music by Robert Johnson)
Artist: Elmore James
Album: Got To Move

Tabbed by: Francisco & Vitor Ribeiro Suman

This is one of the most traditional blues tunes ever, and has been played in many
different ways by a lot of different artists. By playing this Elmore James version
you can have the idea of what to play if you want a different version. James used
a bottleneck, his trademark. If you have one, use it, it will sound a lot better.
Have fun folks!

This should work with most of his songs, like "Baby Please Set A Date"
and many others. Most of all is a variation of this, like "I Can't
Hold Out", you just have to figure it out.
