I've just got it in the old pencil and paper format. Pretty basic Open D or E stuff around the 12th, 7th, 5th frets & open. First slide song for many of us. Great stuff!

Don't know if the MPA thing's affected the smaller blues tab sites, yet.

In the forum at http://bigroadblues.com/ there are links to several of those sites. I don't have any bookmarked on this computer.

Here you go; get it while you can.

I've also got a much more detailed version (from a site that has pulled its tabs - but some are still in google's cache!!!) - I'll PM it to you.

That looks like an accurate tab to me. It's easy to simplify and play with a single guitar, switching between the main lead licks and a bit of the old I-IV-V shuffle.

I've heard Howlin' Wolf's band do it with the lead riffs played on the harp. In fact, I've got a CD sitting in front of me that has that on it. "HOWLIN WOLF: THE MASTERS"

Almost everything Elmore James recorded has that basic "Dust My Broom" riff and rhythm on it, and Howlin' Wolf used it a bunch, too. Listen to Wolf's "Highway 49." Just like Elmore's "Broom" with different words. It works with lots of other stuff, too. 3-4 years ago I was sitting in a steakhouse with country Muzak and heard some guitarist play a well done rendition of the old Elmore James "Dust My Broom" with some whiny nasal Nashville singer moaning over it. Can't identify the song, singer, or guitarist, but I knew what he was playing note for note.
