Ball And Biscuit (ver. 4)

  		As far as I can tell, this is in standard tuning and is derived from a simple 12-bar blues, 
reading as follows: 
E	E	E	E 
A	A	E	E 
B	A	E	E 
I don't care if that's how a twelve bar blues song is normally played; that's how THIS one is 
played. 
 
Here's that same thing w/ the actual notes played: 
 
      BAR 1	(E)   	    BAR 2	(E) 
E|------------------------|-----------------------|

    BAR 11 (E)	  BAR 12 (E) 
E|------------------------|-----------------------| 
B|-------5--3--5----------|-------5--3--5---------|

D|--------------------2---|--------------------2--| 
A|--2---------------------|--2--------------------| 
E|--0---------------------|--0--------------------| 
 
For the most part, that's the verses.  For the most part.  Since this is a blues song, 
there's a lot of improv, especially as the song progresses.  
Like I said, I don't have the time or energy to tab it all out.  If you do, be my guest. 
 
The second and fourth verses have a different E riff for the first 4 bars: 
E|------0-----0-----0-----0-0-0-------| 
B|----0-----0-----0-------0-0-0-------| 
G|--4-----3-----2-----0h1-------------| 
D|------------------------------------| 
A|--------------------------------2---| 
E|--------------------------------0---| 
And then the other 8 bars are the same. 
 
Now there's also a part w/o lyrics that is just heavy power chords and a lead. 
We'll call it the "chorus".  To lead into it, play A5 at the end of the 12th bar.
 
CHORDS: 
E5	E5	E5	E5 
A5	A5	E5	E5 
B5	A5	E5	E5 

Listen to the song for the rhythm.  
Also I don't plan on tabbing out the lead parts, but they're most likely in the E pentatonic 
(12-14-15), with some thrown in on the top of the A (17-19-20). 

To end the chorus, play: 
A------------------------------- 
E---4--4--5--5--6--6--7---0--0-- 
...and then back into the verses. 
 
The outro is the standard E riff.  End with a E5. 
Also, the intro is the standard E riff played 8 times before the lyrics come in 
(2 w/o drums, 6 with).
