Unreal. This is what I'm talkin bout. I know the many versions of this song, but it this version the one that RJ played? If so, where can you find a transcription of it. I know most of the sliding he's doing, it's the rythm part I'm having trouble with.

That boy is pretty good. Sounds like he's been playin for a while. Nice rythmn..the slide intro was nice but his slidin got sloppy later in the song.
That rythmn didnt sound that complicated. Im sure you could do it James!
Look at his other video's ..(gypsy eyes) he is no beginner ! He is the best thumbpicker I have ever seen. :shock:

Yeah, it doesn't sound anything like RJ's, and the words are Eric Clapton's version, but I do like it!

sounds like hes got the action pretty low to be able to fret that fast n smooth... probably why the slide was soundin a bit sloppy once he started gettin into it. I have to admit it is pretty tough to slide on low action. I like the way he sounds though.

Definitely not RJ's version, He is doing sort of a variation of the Cream version. And after his initial intro, he steals some licks from Claptons version of Mean Old World. Nice playing though. I enjoyed it.

that isn't mr. johnsons version. He's a decent player. I'm sure you could learn that rhythm and the licks in about a day though.

Oh, if you're looking for the original, i believe i have it laying around in a book around here, i haven't compared the online tab, to the book for accuracy, however, when playing along, i found the book to be spot on, PM and i'll dig it out.

Yip,
excellent rock tune with a very good and catchy rythym feel.

The original however does rank in the top five blues tunes of all time for several reasons, one of these being that Poor Bob wrote it in 3/4, 4/4 and 5/4 time. And a lot of the action was at the 12th in a position that was familiar to players , but not with the attack Bob played it with.

But I suppose this guy is playing it as he hears it, and that is fine.

adios,
Lovat

Hello,
on listening again to it he has taken parts of Winters reso playing on "Hard Again" esp "Can't be Satisfied" and Cream's "Crossroads" esp the quick move to the IV and vox only on the IV and V .

What was spooky was his intro sounded like "Woke up this morning" from the great Manny Charlton, mebs Nazareth was big in Germany too 8)

adios,
Lovat
