Welcome back! today I wanna show you one of the greatest guitar tabs ever, the still got the
blues guitar tab.
Still got the blues is a song by Gary Moore, released in 1990 as part of the album “Still Got the
Blues”. The song was really popular, considering it’s a blues song and for the time being, it
reached #97 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was also covered by other artists like Eric
Guitar players usually love this song because of the ballad feel and the long solo notes. Those
long notes in every bar just sound so good on a guitar run through a delay and a lot of reverb,
and yeah, us guitarists love reverb and delay. We are gonna put delay and reverb even where
they don’t want us to.
Now, to start off this lesson, let’s check out the tab:
Here’s a few tips for playing this song right:
you play a long note, use vibrato. Vibrato is a great way to bring life to a long
and boring note; having so many long notes could make the song boring so vibrato is
your friend. If you are used to playing with a whammy bar, it might also help. The type of
vibrato generated with a whammy bar is bit more intense but also works.
the right fingers for bending. Sometimes you will need to bend the string with your
ring finger, and sometimes and sometimes with your pinky; whichever finger it is, make
sure you have support and by support I mean at least 2 fingers behind it helping you
bend the string.
song sounds great with a good amount of distortion. Turn the distortion up, those
long notes are begging for it. A sustainer could also work.
