Subject: TAB: "Walking Blues" by Robert Johnson

------------------
Walking Blues
by Robert Johnson
------------------


Robert Johnson recorded this tune in the key of B, with his guitar tuned 
up to A-tuning (E-A-E-A-C#-E) and A capo on the second fret.  This 
transcription is in the key of A.

This song apparently has its roots in the rhythyms of work songs that 
were used continuously from slave times up through Reconstruction and 
preserved on the prison workfarms.  "Walking Blues" is an example of an 
'axe song'.
