Just Got Back from Baby's
ZZ Top

The basic progression is a I-IV-V as follows:
Cm Fm Cm Cm Fm Fm Cm Cm Gm Fm Cm Cm

Some of the lyrics were hard to figure out, but they sound
right.  The rhythm guitar plays this progression using distortion,
heavy reverb, and staccato strums two beats a measure.
The lead guitar plays fills and solos over the C blues
scale, which is as follows:

e--8------11----13-
B--8------11----13-
G--8---10----12----
D--8---10----------
A--8-9-10----------
E--8------11-------
