    I really love this tune, and plan on making it a song that I typically do with my new band. I've never sat down to work it out, sounds like a 3 chord blues, but done in a more John Lee Hooker / RL Burnside type style, any other insights, like if there is a special tuning that would sound better for this??? I love the version on Motivational Speaker, Alvin is just such a powerful mofo!!!
