Crossroad Blues – Robert Johnson (open A + capo on 2nd)

Recorded at the riverside, you will hear the sound of river flow. It was 2010 summer that I had no job but plenty of time. Copying “Cross Road Blues” was the only thing to do then. Listen, play, listen, play, listen, play……………. It took all the summer long to learn this song. -Tuning – Key = B Played in Open A, 012-016-024-032-042-053, and capo on 2nd.
