Unemployment Line
words and music by Arlo Guthrie

From THIS performance:

It's a standard I IV V rock beat with a modulation from the key of D to E. The basic strokes are the same.

Say

D : G : A A7 : D

E : A : B B7 : E

The walks and sixth pulloffs are style stuff. Get the basics first. The kickoff lick requires you tune the sixth string from E to D. That means when you play the G and the A in the first half you need to use the barr forms at the third and forth positions and mute the bass string after the modulation to keep the D from ringing unless like Arlo you can reach up in two beats and retune the D to E.
That bit probably takes a little practice. :lol:
