Still Got the Blues (live)

By: Gary Moore

Hey Everyone! Before I include some notes about the video, I want to give a shout out to PRS for sending me out the guitar for this video. It is an SE McCarty 594 and besides being absolutely gorgeous to look at, it sounds and plays amazing. This is the best guitar for me personally because it has the tones of single coils and humbuckers with the push/pull knob feature. I will 100% be using this for my cover band gigs. I also have to note that I didn’t have to keep re-tuning it for this video. Because of how PRS position their tuners on the headstock, this guitar doesn’t have the tuning issues that many other guitars do because of their design flaws. I strongly recommend this guitar because of all that I have noted and also because it is affordable.

What great timing! We have hit 500K subscribers and this song has been requested for some time. I had a lot of fun learning this and tabbing it out for you all to learn. I really hope you enjoy learning this tune. Besides Gary Moores killer vibrato, he also has amazing chops so this is definitely a challenge. I did do a couple of things differently for this video and I will note them. In the first verse, I gently strum the chords to kill dead air and space. Moore doesn’t play this live and his backing band takes over.

Start strumming in measure 13 if you want to do it exactly like he does. I am also using the bridge pickup for the verses and choruses except for when I break out a lead. I felt this was a better sound for me personally but Moore uses his neck pickup for those parts. And that’s really it! I studied his finger positions from about 3 of his live videos because I couldn’t see them all in the live in Hamburg video. And took very educated guesses on his scale positioning if I was unsure. I really feel that this is an accurate tab.
