The tab book is not always what you hear from Hookers recordings, but this may
be due to the many years he played the same songs and probably changed a note here
I find with most tab books, they are a good base to go from, but would recommend
you find other tabs online and just go with your gut instinct if something does not
sound right, which is pretty much what John Lee Hooker was all about (Gut instinct).
I have this book of Hooker and the Definitive Collection CD to hear what he is actually doing
and a TASCAM to loop and slow it down. With these three tools, I am progressing at a good pace,
and enjoying his finger picking style.
