Topic: Opening Riff

Does anyone know the opening riff to Dweight Yoakam's version of "Close Up the Honky Tonks"?

Re: Opening Riff

Hi Butch.  I couldn't find a tab for it so I took a shot at it.  Here's a simplified version that will get you started.

The song is in Bb but he's playing it using A fingering.  Put a capo on fret 1.

String:  fret
6:  0h2
5:  0h3s4p0
6:  2p0
then follow it with an open A.

Play around with that and add to it as needed to suit your ears.
