The morning will come
In the press of every kiss
With your head upon my chest

Where I will annoy you
With every waking breath
Until you, decide to wake up

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.

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

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
