Pulling away from typical blues lessons, Glenn Watt has taken the classic Grateful Dead song, “Friend of the Devil” and transcribed the entire thing for a 3-string cigar box guitar. The results are a great lesson that helps you open up your fretboard to more than just I IV V chord progressions.
The entire TAB has been saved as a downloadable PDF:
