Hot rod lincoln   Asleep At The Wheel

It'd be cool if someone could post the lead guitar tab or otherwise for
"Hot Rod Lincoln" from the late '50s.  Thanks.

I've never seen it published.  We play it in E, so the chords are like E, 
A, and B.  The trick is the "chicken picking" speed.  So, if you already 
know a walking bass line in E, then just triple your notes and "chicken 
pick it" for that Commander Cody feel.

Rather than do TAB, we have a nifty guitar notation that might work. I'm 
a TAB user myself, but I find typing it to be cumbersome so this notation 
is a fairly decent substitution.

first number = string/second number = fret

B                       B!    B!    6/3 (bend full)
Don't stop driving that Hot   Rod   Lincoln

6/0+++  6/3 (hammer on)  6/4++   5/2+++   5/4 (pull off) 5/2
5/0+++  5/3 (h.o.)       5/4++   4/2+++   4/4 (p.o.)     4/2
5/2+++  4/1+++  4/4++  3/1  4/4
4/2++   5/4++   5/2++   6/4++  (start again at 6/0)

I'm not sure if I really "pick" each note the number of times (denoted by 
the ++++) I wrote, but I just play that basic walking bass pattern and 
pick the heck out of it.

Good luck,
Roy Snyder
