A nice, simple traditional 12 bar blues tune.
Strum Pattern is DU DU (typical blues shuffle) with the accent on the downstroke.
[E]My Cor-ri-na, where ya been so long?
[E]Oh my cor-[A]ri-na where ya been so [E]long?
[E]Ain't had no [B7]lov-ing since you been [E]gone
that's all folks. Questions, suggestions, helpful tips are welcome. ;D
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- "WOW--What a Ride!"
Man, I love your name: "TwistedFingers"
I feel like that most the time.
Anyway, thanks for the Corrina post. I thru in an 'A7' wherever you had an 'A' and got a tad more bluezzy sound.
Well, I like this song so much I did some research on the web and found this. I love singing in 'D' and that change from 'D' to 'D7' and into 'G' is awhsome sounding to me.
