I usualy bend the "2" on the D string


|------------------------------------repeat|
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------2-2-4-4-2-2-4-----------|
|-2-2-4-4-2-2-4----0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------|
|-o-0-0-0-0-0-0-3-4--------------3-4-repeat|



|-------0----0-----0-----0-|
|-----3----2-----1---------|
|-2\4----3-----2-----0h1---|
|--------------------------|

Thats a cool little intro i like to follow with this.

|---------0-------0-------2-------0-|
|-----------------------------------|
|-------4---4---3---3---2---2-0h1---|
|-----------------------------------|
|---------------------2-------------|
|-3-4-0-------2---------------------|

When using these blues "riffs" you can pick them inbetween E7 and A7.
After you do some E7 and A7's throw in this little guy:

|------------------------------0------|
|------------------------------0------|
|-------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|
|-------5h7-5h7-5h7-5-----------0-1-2-|
|-0-0-0---------------7-5-3-0---------|


the (0-1-2-|) will walk you back into either A7, E7, or Gsomthing





I hope this helps you... or someone. Took an minute or 12 to write this out
Enjoy!

glad i could help. those are fun to mess around with. you can put bends and hammers and pick offs in there and really make it funky. i just didnt do it cause its easier to read. the original version looked like a tab with the alphabet mixed in it.

* * B7
|---0-0---0-0------0-----------0-------2-|
|------------------------------0-------0-|
|--------------------------------------2-|
|-0-2---2---0------------2-------------1-|
|-------------0h2----0-----------0-1-2-2-|
|----------------------3---0-0-----------|

the * are jsut there so you know to play
both string at the same time.

I wanna say this is in the key of E; if that helps.

So you could throw these in with the other chords
I suggested in last tab post:

E7 A7 B7
|-----------|------------|-----------|
|-----------|------------|-----------|
|-----------|------------|-----------|
|-----0-----|------0-2-0-|-----0-----|
|-0-2---2-0-|--0-2-------|-0-2---0-1-|
|-----------|------------|-----------|

Correct me if im wrong, but all the shit I've poseted
can be played as "12 Bar Pattern". If you **** with it
all that stuff goes together in the same "key"


12 Bar Pattern:
I IV I I IV IV II V IV I V
