    CAn anybody help with the chords and possible a location for the tab to Milk Cow blues. I only heard it one time at a friends and can't seem to find it anywhere. Thanks folks
    Keep on the Sunny Side of the Mountain with your F5 ringing loud and true.

    Check the Tabledit files at mandozine(.com I think). There'll be a link from the Cafe.

    It's pretty much just a basic 3 chord blues shuffle - I - IV - V7. If in E, it's E, A & B7. On guitar, I usually capo up to 3rd or 5th fret and play those shapes in G (3rd fret) or A (5th fret). I play the E chord shape and use my pinky for the shuffle - same on the A chord shape. Gives a feeling of guitar and bass instead of just a "power chord" shuffle on 3 strings only. George Strait's version with Johnny Gimble on the fiddle is about the best "Milk Cow Blues" I've heard. It's not a hard song to pick out by ear.
