Well, here's my shot at this great tune. I play it tuned down
1/2 step (mostly because that's how my guitar's usually tuned),
but since it's all barres, you could play it in regular tuning.
(It would be easier in open E tuning, and I'd be willing to bet
that the Crowes play it that way to get the slides down right)
Progression #1: B - A# - G#
 Progression #2: G# - A# - A#, A# - C - C, D# - C - C# - A# - C - G#

[-] [G#]  
NOTE: Don't play the A# and B chords as E-barres - they
==== sound right. Play all of these as A-barres, except the
Song Structure: Intro (Progression 1 X 4)
Verse 1 (Progression 1 X 4)
Fill (Progression 1 X 2)
Verse 2 (Progression 1 X 4)

NOTE: There are tons of fills, licks, & slides all over the

so good luck on those!
