Crosseyed Cat Tab?

Back to the Harmonica Tab Room

I'm fairly novice and am wanted to play this great Muddy Waters tune, but can't find it tabbed anywhere. I've noodled around and can't figure that repeated lick out to save my life.

Anyone hear know where I can find the tab or maybe you have it down and can share?

I would very much appreciate it.

Thank you in advanced for any help!

I think he means from the Hard Again LP.

That's the one! It's on the "Hard Again" album.

You can listen to a sample at Amazon here. It's track 8.

It's a killer lick that really carries the whole song. I would love to figure it out or see the tab.

No problem. I could have been more clear and repeated the song in the body.

It's my first post here. I'm still trying to get used to these boards.

Small world--I recentlybought Hard Again and love this song. Just this afternoon at lunch I started working on it--use a C harp in key of G.

Starting with a glissando up to 6D, the lick goes 6D 6B 5D 5B 4D bend 4B. Do this4X

Then 2B 3D blue 3rd 3B 3B 2B 3B 3D blue 3rd Do this 2X

Hopefully that will get you started!

Great question Kurt. Love this tune. I've played this for years. Last month I thought about tabbing it for "lick of the day" but didn't get as far as you did Mark. You did a great job. Funny to play someting for so long and never really think about what it is your doing exactly. Now I know. Thanks

Mark, I could swear the first riff starts on a 5 draw, not a 6 draw... Am I wrong?

Elwood, you are correct.

Not a Replied:

So this song is an example of non-2nd pos blues, right? The low riff uses the 2 blow as the home note, so that's fifth position right? The high riff is hard for me to peg down. It hits the -5 a couple of times, so it could be 12th pos, but it ends on the 4 blow, which would be 1st. Which one is it?

Give up tabs! It's like a pair of crutches to anyone which start to walk. Train your ear (there is some soft for ear training) or find music teacher. Musical tone and notation is universal language, tabs is don't good even for harmonica only.

Elwood Replied:

Nah, I've been listening to this song more and, while I'm not confident in tabbing it out, I'm pretty sure it's 2nd position on a C harp and that the riff "starts" on a 5D. (I say "starts" on the 5D because he actually rolls up to that note, possibly starting from 3D'.) I welcome correction here - perhaps from Kingobad?
