56: Illegal Aliens – 016


Rita introduces a tune she wrote called “Tamale Blues” and begins the guitar class by explaining how to read guitar tab, but for some reason there seems to be a language barrier between her and her Tia.

I attempted to come up with a title for the song for about a week and I couldn’t do it. Until a few friends came over to my pad and brought food, kind of a potluck. And one of them brought “tamales”.

I thought this is it, Rita’s hispanic and she’s in bluesy mood because of what happened to her Papa. So I came up with “Tamale Blues.”

I know what you’re thinking, genius right?

In light of me genius, I created the actual tune for you to download. Just click on the link below.

Tamale Blues

I’ll do a recap of the lesson.

  1. The top line is your bottom guitar string.
  2. The bottom line is your top guitar string.
  3. I know what you’re thinking, the guy who created guitar tab was a confused genius.
  4. All six lines represents the six strings of your guitar.

That wasn’t so hard was it?

Remember repetition is key to mastery.

I’ll see you later and leave a comment and let me know what you think.
