I love this part. I throw in an extra measure to make this a 13 bar blues, and I really get the most out of a B7 tonality with lots of passing tones. When you get to the C# in the bass, fret it with 3 and barre the second fret. Then use 2, 3, and 4 to fret the fifth, third, and first strings respectively. Barre the second fret again, and use 4 to fret the G# on the first string. Then fret the A# in the bass on the second beat of measure nineteen with 1, the A# on the third string with 3, and the G on the first string with 4. The 3 and 4 fingers move chromatically on the same strings, and use 2 to fret the G to G# slide in the bass. With these fingerings this part is not too tough. Be sure to hold the B and G# as long as is indicated in the tab.
