					DUST MY BROOM -  ZZTOP version

					BASS TAB

This very well known tune was first composed by Robert Johnson. It was then
covered by Elmore James , the famous electric slide guitar player, in the
fifties. After him many also covered it in different ways : Canned Heat,
Spencer Davies Group, Taj Mahal, John Mayall, Ike and Tina Turner .....
and ZZTOP :

The ZZTOP version that I tabbed here was released in 1979 on their album
DEGUELLO. On the record you can hear three guitars (two playing
rhythm) but one rhythm guitar and one slide guitar are enough with a bass
guitar to reproduce the tune.


🏷Legend :

  /  : slide-up
  \  : slide-down
  ^^^^ : let ring
  n__ : linger on this note
      (= rough way of noting rhythm !)
  {n} : vibrate around fret n with the slide bar

   n  : slide guitar only : do not play with the slide bar.

    (With the slide guitar all notes are played with the slide bar except in
the turnarounds, the outro and where noted in the solo section with underlined
notes).

Remember to tune both guitars in OPEN D as indicated above.

You can hear and download two MP3 DEMOs (one electric and one acoustic) and get
some more details from the URL above.
