GUEST,SirCoughsalot Help with Townes Van Zandt Blues Playing (11) RE: Help with Townes Van Zandt Blues Playing 19 Dec 11


Yep, Broke Down Engine is a Blind Willie McTell song. It was also done by Bob Dylan on World Gone Wrong.

Now that I've had time to look over the live video, it seems like the thumb is doing most of the work, with the fingers coming in every now and then. Hm. I don't think I've ever really seen anyone play like that, but it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out.
