In the tab below, you will see the complete intro to Little Wing as performed by Stevie Ray Vaughan. All the root notes played on the low E string (6th) are played with the thumb. It’s the only way to free up enough fingers to play the passages on the other strings. If you’ve never played with your thumb, don’t frown upon it. Try to incorporate it into your playing, because it can open up a world of possibilities. We just had to put the picture above up, mainly because that is probably how we all feel trying to figure him out!
One final note: Stevie Ray adds the Am voicing right at the beginning that is not in the original song.
