    Hey, I'm surprised no one has mentioned Country Boy. Most of the tabs all of you are looking for are out there already, though admittedly, this forum makes a nice compilation and corrects errors found in some of them found online, like Lerb's tab of Hey Porter. The previous version I used had some errors:

    Lerb21's tabs correct some of the errors found in the second part of the solo. Anyway, as I was saying, if I were asking for tabs I couldn't find, that aren't listed here, they'd be:


    1. Country Boy
    2. Tennessee Flat Top Box
    3. Train of Love
    4. If the Good Lord's Willin'
    5. Wide Open Road


    I have found some tabs for some other songs that I like playing, and I'll post the ones I can find, that aren't already, here. They may be off, so feel free to manipulate them. For the songs listed above, I think that they would be fun songs to play, but I can't find the tabs for them, and I am certainly not experienced enough to make my own. :( I wish. :p

    Hey,

    I'm trying to figure out JC's song He Turned the Water Into Wine. It sounds like it starts in A or maybe D and then changes key to C for a verse or two then back down to A or E. Anyone else picking up on that? Am I needing a hearing aid already? Lerb21 is that what you're hearing too?

    Apropos of nothing at all, a lot of what Luther did sounds a good deal like the alternate-picking and alternate bass notes excercises in Mel Bay 1-although the Mel Bay stuff tended to be in C and G rather than the more fingerboard friendly sharped keys.I remember "getting it" about Luther right away,although how to deal with "Johnny Cash Wrist" took a little longer:eek:

    Yes, the choruses seem to be in the key of A and then it switches to C for the verses.

    Hey Lerb!
    A man after my heart. Brother it has been a very frustrating day. I am smiling now.
    I am moving the computer to the jam room.
    Thanks for that bro!


    Really man, when that man died it simply did not seem possible.
    ...

    God bless.

    Guys, it's very noteworthy to mention that after Luther does the walk ups to the 5th fret, he basically takes an E barre chord shape and slaps it on the 5th fret, making an A. He does a little strumming pattern that's hard to pick out by tab, but kind of natural by ear. He does the same when he returns to the nut to play the E chord. He'll occasionally go to an Em by lifting his index finger and quickly returning it to create a small effect.

    I disagree, but only slightly. Most of everybody can agree on the beginning of Walk the line, but after that, everybody pretty much disagrees. I think your version is the most accurate one to the original, however, I think he originally played it like this:



    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------0--0-0---------1-------------------------1----------
    --------0---0-0-2-4---0-----4-2-0---0-0--------2-2--------2--2-0------
    -0-2-4---0--------------------------------4-2-0------0-2-0--------4-2-0



    Note: The note that I edited may not be 1, might be 2. I know for a fact, however, that the note I edited is a higher note, somewhere on the D chord. If not anything else, i know for a fact that note is not on the E chord.

    Tabs for "Home of the Blues"

    I was directed here, and from what I see, for good reason too!

    Was hoping some one (lerb 21?) could tab out Luther's piece to Home of the Blues. I got the intro walk up, but his solo and strumming(?) I can't make out. What I can find on the tab sites don't make sense.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Home of the blues

    390Rocket there's nothing really tricky in Home of the Blues at all. In fact if you are new to transcribing songs this would be the ultimate starter.
    Here is my 2cents of intro to get you started (Dwight Yoakam's version is another matter entirely).
    Not perfect timing wise at all but (I'm open to corrections from the resident panel of Luther experts.:lol:).

    Code:
    E  :-7-5-4-2-0--------------------|--------0------0---0---------|
    B  :-----------4-2-0--------------|--------0------0---0---------|
    G  :-----------------2-1----------|--------0-h1---1---0-h1------|
    D  :---------------------4-2-1----|-----------------------------|
    A  :---------------------------4-2|0------------2---------------|
    E  :------------------------------|--4-2-0----------0------0-0-2|
    
    E  :----0---0---2---2---0---0---0--|0-----------0---0-------|
    B  :----2---2---0---0---0---0---0--|0-----------2---2-------|
    G  :----2---2---2---2---1---1---1--|1-----------2---2-------|
    D  :----2---2---1---1---2---2---2--|2-----------2---2-------|
    A  :--0-0---0-2-2---2---2-2-2---2-2|2---------0-0---0--etc--|
    E  :4-----0-------2---0-0---0-0-0--|0-0-0-2-4-----0---------|
    
    I'm using a program called "Tabit". Its easy to use for even a "mutton" like me.
    Chord changes are here you'll need to register for free to access. Give it a go!;)

    Thanks Kiwi.

    What about Luther's solo? I think it runs something like this:

    |--------------|--------------|---------------|--------------|
    |--------------|--------------|---------------|--------------|
    |--------------|--------------|---------------|--------------|
    |--------------|-2------------|-1-------------|--------------|
    |-------0-2----|---0---2------|---4--2--------|--------------|
    |-0-2-4-----2-0|-----0--------|--------0-0-2-4|--------------|

    Not sure though.

    Hey Lerb:

    On some of your JC song demos, you are using background tracks that play the rhythm guitar and drums while you pick Luther's part. Where do you get your tracks from? Do you create them yourself or purchase on line some where. To have those tracks available certainly makes it more fun and entertaining when trying to play Luthers's part. As usual thanks for any advice.
