Thanks for posting that Slid,

I used to have a couple of his albums 30 years and have actually forgotten about Roy and how he was an amazing guitar player.

Try this link to get a structure of the song and go from there:

He is doing this as a 12 bar blues in C the chords being C - C7 - F7 - G7

The link below gives an introduction to 12 bar blues

This link gives you a midi in C that sounds a lot like the song in question.

I just started getting back into Roy's music listened to him in the 70's.

He was truly one of the Greats

Hope this helps
