A Mike Bloomfield Solo
Guitar Tab for "I Got a Mind to Give Up Living"
By Stewart Knight

 

Editor's note: Guitarist Stewart Knight has analyzed one of Michael Bloomfield’s most iconic solos, creating this tab as a guide for those who would like to play the guitarist’s improvisation. The piece is “I Got a Mind to Give Up Living” from “East-West” (1966, Elektra/WEA), and Stewart has kindly allowed us to post it here for visitors to www.mikebloomfieldamericanmusic.com. The tab system used is the Stefan Grossman style where strings are represented by spaces between the lines, and the notation uses the "box" system of blues guitar improvisation.
