Problem!?  The Fall of Troy

"The Problem" by J.J. Cale
From the album "To Tulsa and Back"
Performance notes: True to the laid back "Tulsa Sound"
he helped to create, Cale plays slightly behind the beat.
This can be accomplished by strumming down and up normally,
but accenting the upstroke only. All solos are played
over the intro/verse chords, except for the last solo
where it passes through the Eb F Bb Ab Eb progression
toward the end of it.
