Subject: TAB: Rock Me -- Muddy Waters

Due to the overwhelming response in these newsgroups (zero), I submit the following
tab in the hope that there is at least someone who appreciates these tunes (me?).
From memory:

The recording is in F and it sure sounds better in F, so just 
use your index finger in barrée in the 1st position. Maybe this is do 
to that there are open strings in E. The way a verse of 'Rock Me' is played 
is (with a definite shuffle feeling or in 12/8):

Riff 1 (instrumental)
Riff 2 (vocals)
Riff 1 (instrumental)
Riff 2 (vocals)
Riff 1 (instrumental)
Riff 3 (turnaround with vocals)

Have fun,

Please note the power chord in riff 2 so Jimmy Page couldn't have been
first but on the other hand all these guys listened to Robert Johnson, who
listened to Lonnie Johnson and Son House, who listened to Blind Lemon
Jefferson who listened to ... ;-)
