Highway blues, Roy harper
From: Aaro J Koskinen <email@example.com> [Song: Roy Harper "Highway Blues"] [Transcription by Dave Coniam (B096770@vax.csc.cuhk.hk)] I dunno which open tuning Roy uses but you'll a lot of stuff is in some open tuning or other - as Gordon's naming of chords like G1 and Bm1 suggests. I play a lot of stuff in open E tuning - just crank the 3rd, 4th and 5th strings up so that when you hit them you get the E chord without holding down any strings. I find it's a great tuning for a lot of old Joni and Beatles songs. Here's an attempt at Highways Blues, which, like a lot of Harper songs, requires very few chords. In the "main" verses you hammer a sort of E and a vague D6; following Gordon's line, I've called these E1 and A1. The chorus then shifts to a good old E - A - B run. I've only included a few of the words. Mebbe some kinder soul cd stick the whole song on the list: the last verse I cant remember/work it all out.

"Once" goes pretty OK in open E as well- you basically fiddle around on the top and second strings, picking out the melody, and plonking a few chords (A, G# and B) in here and there. I'll bung that up on the list as well if anybody's intrested. Bash away Dave Coniam Hong Kong
