Subterranean Homesick Blues (Rhythm)

Animated Subterranean Homesick Blues (Rhythm) tab by Bob Dylan on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

Here is the rhythm guitar for Subterranean Homesick Blues by Bob Dylan. It's a very easy song because it only involves 3 chords. However, the speed will take time to get for beginners.

The strumming pattern is the same throughout 99% of the song. It is:

D - D - D U D U (repeat)

And the 3 chords are:

A major - D7 - E major

Use thumb-muting to eliminate the Low E string whilst strumming the D7 / E major chords if it helps.

All chords are barre chords. If the E major gives you problems, just mute out the high E string. We discuss this method in 'Tricky Fingers' - article here.
