Charlie Daniels
Layla (Guitar tab)

Ok, the opening chord progression goes as follows:

Am, F, G, E --> that repeats twice

then the main riff comes in:


I--------10^13^10------10---13b(15)--13------10-----------------------------------I
I-10^13------------13--------------------12---------------------------------------I
I---------------------------------------------------------------------------------I
I---------------------------------------------------------------------------------I
I---------------------------------------------------------------------------------I
I---------------------------------------------------------------------------------I

then:
I--------10^13^10------10---15b(17)--15------10-----------------------------------I
I-10^13------------13--------------------12---------------------------------------I
I---------------------------------------------------------------------------------I
I---------------------------------------------------------------------------------I
I---------------------------------------------------------------------------------I
I---------------------------------------------------------------------------------I

(so you can improvise all you want on that)

Ok, well thats about it. Yes, I also was amazed when I found a version of a rock classic
done by The Charlie Daniels Band. But its a really good version.
Its pretty much the same as the Derek & The Dominos version, but still really cool.
Have fun and Enjoy!!
