I'm so glad my son likes classic rock and not the stuff that is so popular with his peers. He is just learning this tune and it is diffcult to play with only guitar and no bass or vocals but here we go anyway! Thanks for watching - and Paul Rodgers is still one of the greatest voices ever in R&R!

thanks for watching - who knows maybe one day the music bug will hit - my kids did soccer as well and I still don't fully understand what's going on!

Sweet cover. Wish I had an in-house drummer.

Can I ask what two fingerings/voicing you're using in the main riff? Not the A, but the D type chordies. I can't seem to find one I like, but I do like yours. All sorts of tabs out there, but none seem right to my ears.

I think maplebaby is playing:

open fifth string (a)
pinky finger, fifth fret, 4th string
first finger, second, fret third string
second finger, third fret, second string

open fifth string (a)
third finger, fourth fret, 4th string
first finger, second, fret third string
second finger, third fret, second string

Also try playing the main a chord like this:

open fifth string (a)
first finger, second fret, fourth string
first finger, second fret, third string
pinky finger, fifth fret, second string
pinky finger, fifth fret, first string

I apprecite all of you watching and taking time to comment as well! Thanks. I'm using a Fulltone Fulldrive pedal, the older one I think, kind of blue with white lettering. The amp is a Headstrong Lil King - I LOVE it. 12 watts and all I ever need.

moozak - the time does fly doesn't it - thanks for sharing about your family.

I using just an old A power chord on the 2nd. Then go up to 1st finger B string 3rd fret and 2nd finger D string 4th fret against an open A & G string. Then for the second half of the D chord a more traditional open A - D string 4th fret 3rd finger - B string 3rd fret 2nd finger with the 1st finger barring the DGB strings on the 2nd fret. Clear as mud! To my ear this matches the studio version - although watching them live he didn't always go to the trouble to play it like this it seems.

Thanks again for all the kind words and for watching, dale.

Ahhhh, so cool , you really need a bass player and your combo'll kick %%s, your son's groove is strong solid.
By the way what is your gear . Is your guitar a squier esprit ?

Thanks, I'll try both of these. Maybe it's just me. :jo

thanks for watching and the kind words! I'm using a Collings I-35 and a Headstrong Lil King amp.

Redlizard - hope one of these grips will work for you - I've always thought a lot people were not playing the right voicings as well - to my ear I finally am happy. Thanks, dale.

I particularly like the first half of the D chordie with the open G string. That's the one that's been eluding me. When I watched you playing, I thought you were moving between two fairly different chords, but now I see that the only real difference between the first half and second of that part of the riff is just closing off the open G with the index. Nice!

It's fair to say creativity isn't my strongest suit. :) Doh!

that is exactly what I'm doing - it is just enough of a change to hear and I think it is what the studio version sounds like to me. I could always hear a change in the voicings being used on the studio cut but people didn't seem to play it that way I watched. I hope it sounds good to your ears as well - great old tune - too bad they don't come around much these days! Your friend, dale.
