    Does anyone know the bass line for "I'm tore down" by Jeff Healey?

    Sounds like the Freddy King version to me - a shuffle staple.

    12 bar blues, slow change, key of C. Most people play like the original Freddie King version: the first 10 bars use the pattern 1-1-8-8-b7-b7-5-5 as a shuffle. The turn around is 1-1-3-3-4-4-b5-b5-5-5-#5-5, listen to the song to get the timing at the end of the pattern. A lot of the song versions start on the V chord. The stop sections are on the C chord, play an approach note from above or below the C (band in unision). I will work up a chart later today or tomorrow if you want to see how I play it.
