OK, let's wrap this baby up! Should be clear sailing until measure eleven when I start the ending tag. Use 2 to fret the G# in the bass, 3 to fret the B on the third string, and 1 to fret the D on the second string. Then use 3 to fret the A on the third string, and 4 to fret the C# on the second string. Now fret the A# in the bass with 1, and the C natural on the second string with 2. On the first beat of measure thirty-one, shift 2 to the third string to fret the G#, and use 3 to fret the B in the bass. These fingerings really make it easier.

The outro is similar to the intro, but in double time. The progression for the intro was E G#(major) A Adim7, and the outro is E E7/G# A C7/Bb. That last chord is a little strange, and hard to notate with a pop chord symbol, but it's very similar to the A#dim. I think you'll agree that it sounds like a typical bluesy outro.

I hope you enjoyed my Gravedigger blues. As with all my lessons and articles, send me a message if you have any questions or comments, I always respond.
