    I don't know if anyone is still watching this thread, but I was looking for some SCOTS and googled and this thread came up.

    I'm retraining my ear to be able to tab stuff out and this was a fun. Please post corrections, critiques, etc.:

    i play it this way

    g--/9-9-8-7---7----7-7-6--5-5---5-4---------
    d----------------------------------------------
    a--/7-7-6-5---5-0-5-5-4--3-3-0-3-2----------
    e----------------------------------------------------


    g-----2-------2----5--2------2---------
    d-----2-------2----5--2------2--------
    a--0-----x-3----0-------x-3-----------
    e----------------------------------3---- add a lil bend to that last G

    solo
    those 7 are harmonics for 5 and a half beat
    e------------------------------------8--------------
    b--------------------------------7b---7-----r------------
    g-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----then---7b-----7r------------
    d---------------------------------------------------
    a-------------------------------------------------
    the 7 bend on the B s a half step, the 7 bend on the G s a full step, then hit the 8 on the E, the 7 bent note on the B, then the 7 bent note on the G, then release the bend.

    harmonics again
    e-------------------------------------5--
    b--------------------------------7-5---5---
    g-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----then---7-5-----5
    d---------------------------------------------------
    a-------------------------------------------------


    those 7 are harmonics for 5 and a half beat
    e------------------------------------8--------------
    b--------------------------------7b---7-----r------------
    g-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----then---7b-----7r------------
    d---------------------------------------------------
    a-------------------------------------------------
    the 7 bend on the B s a half step, the 7 bend on the G s a full step, then hit the 8 on the E, the 7 bent note on the B, then the 7 bent note on the G, then release the bend.

    harmonics again
    e---------------------------------------------------------------------
    b--------------------------------7-5----5-------------------------------
    g-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----then---7-5----5-------------------------------
    d--------------------------------------7----7-5-----------5-7-5---
    a----------------------------------------------------6h7-----------

    last solo

    d-s7-0----s6-0----s5-0----s4-0----s3-0-2---
    a--------0--------0--------0--------0------------- play that X3
    e-----------------------------------------------------


    d-----0--------0--------0--------0---------0---
    a-s7----0-s6----0-s5----0-s4----0-s3-----0----------
    e---------------------------------------------------3-3--bend the last 2 G a lil.

    all the slides on the last solo part start on the 2 fret, so slide quick from 2 to 7, then 2 to 6, then 2 to 5, and so on.
    and few notes have got a vibrato that i can t put on the tab.
    i hope all of this makes sense. it s way harder to explain than to play.

    *harmonics*. That's what I should have written. It got a little jacked up with the spacing. I'll have to try your version, but I'm sick this evening.

    I had something like what you had for the main riff and listened closer and didn't like it. I did watch a Bunch of you tube videos to cheat at this a bit, it most of the videos are all focused on the bassist. LOL

    Ha! They played at my brother-in-law's wedding reception many years ago (at a gun club, no less)!

    A great trio. Rick was throwing fried chicken out to the people dancing on the floor (I'm sure they were playing "Eight Piece Box"). Mary was a sweetheart, and Dave was just chilling out. All pleasant to speak with.

    voodoo cadillac

    it might be something like that. i don t have all the cool licks between the vocal part nor the solo, i think the small licks are all based on C#7. you ve to listen to the song to get the rhythm down and all the vibratos and so on. I hope this still helps.

    g-----------------------------------------------0-------
    d-------2-4-bend 1/2 tone-2------2-2h4-2----2----------
    a---2-4----------------------2h4----------4---------
    e-4-----------------------------------------------

    verse c#7 / f# / c#7 / e / f# / e
    chorus f# / c#

    mojo box

    intro riff
    d--------------0-2----------------------
    a------1-2-1-2----------1-2-1-2-0---------
    e-0-0---------------0-0------------3----

    so the verse s intro riff, then same riff in A (starting on the A string)
    same riff in E / B / A / B / A

    the bridge > A/D/A/D/A/D/A/D/A/D/A/D/G/B
    there are lots of small licks you can hear if you pay attention

    like
    e-3-3-3-3
    b-2-2-2-2
    that comes right on the first A chord during the verse

    or the one you can hear on the bridge but got to listen to the rhythm
    d--------------4-
    a-0-0-3-4-5-5---

    it s more or less playable like that, but there are numerous other small licks. Can t tab the solo, my bad.

    i don t have the liquored up and lacquered down record right now, but i ll have a look this week end.I saw in VA Steve s quote that the notes on the tabs of voodoo cadillac were a bit messed up, but appeared fine on my post..hope you still could make something out of it. Since i m at it here s camel walk

    g---3-3------------------------
    d-------4-3---3-3--------------
    a-1---------1------------------
    e------------------b-1---------

    got to bend that F note and release and bend it again and release. Clear enough right ?
    Bb/C#/Bb/G#
    then G#/F#/G#/F#/E/F

    Love SCOTS. I subbed to this thread. We've been working on Drunk and Lonesome Again for gigs. Super easy, G C D the whole way...

    White Trash and Camel Walk are my favorites.

    Great to see more Southern Culture tabs happening.

    I'll get that solo (part of it anyway) to "Soul City" up once I'm near a guitar. Any other tries at it would be cool to see. The middle part I haven't figured out yet.

    Thanks, everyone.
