Ellis Unit One    by Steve Earle

Intro 

Note on tuning :  Tune bass E and A strings down 2 steps to D and G, respectively.

This could also be played in standard tuning with a capo on the bottom 4 
strings (DGBe) only, leaving the E and A strings open.

capo 2nd fret : this brings the bass strings back up to E and A which matches with
                matellmon's chord tab.


Notes :  Above the tab are lines and numbers that tie notes together to give you an idea of the rythym.
         To get it to sound correctly you need to get a good alternating bass going.  All the 
         bass notes ( bottom lines in tab : D G D strings) are played with the thumb.  Everything
         else can be played with the index finger or a combo of index and middle, whatever is
         more comfortable for you.  Start slow and build the speed.  It sounds easy but its a bit
         tougher to play.  I have no idea how Steve (or anybody) can play like this and sing!

         The '*' above the 6th measure has a 3s2 : 3rd fret slide down to 2nd.  This is a quick slide.
         The whole 3s2 is done in the & beat.
