Subject: RE: Chords Req: Cocaine Blues (from Dave Van Ronk)
I've always played it with an F-Fm change thus:-
C(add 5)///, E7///,F//,Fm//,
C////,G7////,C///
Then the turnaround C,C7,F,Fm,G (one chord per beat)
then a bass run:- f,f sharp, g. (single notes on low E string f to f sharp quavers, g crotchet, -a double hammer-on)
I think it sounds bluesier that way, but I've no idea where it came from- it's the way I learned it.
Cheers
Dave
