JJ Cale’s stuff always provides me with a welcome slow down, especially most of the tracks from his low budget (no budget?) album Naturally. That early seventies piece of work reminds me of nothing but good times in my middle teens.
So the tutorial that follows is good but if you want to sound more like the studio version, put your capo on the second fret. And instead of playing the E major riff like he shows, go to the fourth fret of the “A” string (now “B”), followed by an open “D” (E) back to the fourth fret on A. Same notes as the tutorial shows but matches up to JJs studio version. Also you might feel more comfortable with a “D” shape vs the B:m.
