Barbecue Blues

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.

Um... i don't think that's the same person.
I think this is the one I'm looking for:

Thanks for the link anyway! Seems like a rocking cat that one too, so while I'm at it I'll check him out.

Yeah, Barbeque Bob Maglinte's the one who pops in on our forum now and then.

I actually just got a 'best of' of his the other day, the old dead black one, that is. GREAT! "Barbeque Blues" was the first track on it.
Of course, I also heard "you don't know my mind" and thought that Guy Davis should just give it up.. ;)

He's great isn't he? I heard the song on one of Stefan Grossmans broadcasts (avaliable for download at his US site). I think the broadcast was about Atlanta blues, under the link Fingerstyle Guitar Workshop. I'm gonna get a CD with him if I can find one.

If anyone's interested, I found out he's probably frailing on this song.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Aug-02-05 AT 06:37 AM (EST)]Forgive ignorance, but I think, not sure, but think frailing is technical speak for pull-offs.

Frailing is equivalent to strumming...pull-offs are notes sounded by the fretting hand only (without picking) - the opposite (in terms of motion) of a hammer-on.

Frailing's a strumming technique using the fingertips. Think of the '20s uke players in their raccoon coats.

Some banjo players use it... Basically, it's a pattern repeated, I'm working on a song with a lot of frailing right now (inspired by Mr BBQ) that's pretty standard. I pick a bass note with my index finger, strum two strings with my middle finger nail and play a second bass note with my thumb. The timing is a bit different than the standard blues.
