Ball and Chain  Janis Joplin

song: Ball and Chain
artist: Janis Joplin
tabbed by: Kutya
I was very surprised that I couldn't find a tab for this song anywhere on the net, even
if its IMHO one of the greatest Janis songs. I did only the rhythm guitar (and it's very
easy as you see), because the lead guitar transcribing is above my skills, so I'd be
very grateful if someone more skilled would take the time to do the hard work, and tab
the solo:)
Used chords:
[F#5] [E5] [B5] [A5] [C#5] [C5]  
 
 e --------------------
 B --------------------
 G --------4--2---6--5-
 D --4--2--4--2---6--5-
 A --4--2--2--0---4--3-
 E --2--0--------------

PART 1 | PART 2 | PART 3 |
 
 e-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|--------------|-------------|
 B-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|--------------|-------------|
 G-------------|-------------|--4----4--2--|--4----4--2--|--6-----6--4--|--6----5--4--|
 D--4----4--2--|--4----4--2--|--4----4--2--|--4----4--2--|--6-----6--4--|--6----5--4--|

 E--2----2--0--|--2----2--0--|-------------|-------------|--------------|-------------|

I'm not sure, but I think it is played in the standard blues pattern, meaning:
PARTS: 1 1 1 1
[2] [2] [1] [1]  
[3] [2] [1] [1]  
Have fun!
