Guitar Man Tab - Elvis Presley / Jerry Reed

Despite being one of the most famous guitar intros around, I hadn't been able to find a tab of Guitar Man anywhere, so there was only one thing for it - do some work myself for a change.

The Elvis version uses a standard dropped D tuning and the Jerry Reed one has the whole guitar then tuned down a semitone. I think it's pretty accurate, but this is my first attempt at tabbing so let me know if you think there's any mistakes.

Your thumb hits the low D string on every beat, use your 2nd and 3rd fingers to play the E & B strings, and your 1st finger the higher D. Easy!!! The chords to the rest of the song is standard 12 bar blues in D, and I'll let some other brave soul tab out the solo.
