    Default Deep Ellum Blues riff?

    I was introduced to the song Deep Ellum Blues last night but only a strum/brush pattern (which I've yet to master). I've seen a couple of picking riffs on videos but no tutorials or tabs online. Can anyone point me to tabs or a tutorial?




    Thanks

    That was great.
    I'd rather be plucking at a ukulele on a faraway beach. I was not a soft-leather-Italian-shoe kind of man. I was a flip-flop man.

    Loved it! I was talking about the picking that this guy is doing though. I haven't seen anyone else do it nor can I find any tabs.

    OK how about any simple bluegrass riffs? I found a couple but would like a few more to play with.
