Tuning: Standard (EADGBD)
This is a fairly easy song played by the King, but it's one of his best. I just find it hard to believe there arent more postings for this song. Oh well, here it is. ****************************************************************************
Basic Rhythm Riff repeated throughout the song played by piano

The next riff is fairly simple and played by the King over the other riff. The notes are played very sharp and clean. Dont overlap the notes at all.
e|---8------------8--|-----13------------13-|----8------------8------------| B|-8----10~(hold)----|--13-----16~(hold)----|--8----10~(hold)--------------| G|-------------------|----------------------|------------------------------| D|-------------------|----------------------|------------------------------| A|(repeat 4 times)---|--(repeat 2 times)----|---(repeat 2 times)-----------| E|-------------------|----------------------|------------------------------|

For the solo you're on your own. I havent fully figured it out. All you really have to do is a little blues improv slowly as the King does on the song. Enjoy.
