Cookin' Green Onions Chords and Progression
Where I've put for the I, IV and V I mean they are the chords you'd play in a standard blues progression when playing the I, IV and V chords.
Most of the time I'm not playing the Octave (the note on the D string for the I chords and the G string for the IV and V chords). I'm just playing the Root and the 5th. But I did play the Octave some times. I didn't think it needed it. The guitar is light on sound and big on groove.
