Well, I would. I have given it a shot, I think I have it pretty close, but there are a few details that I am not quite able to pick out.

a transcription would be more than welcome...

Btw Joe;don't just ALL Fenders (and probably all guitars) with maple fingerboard do that?

Blackie was a composite of a number of old guitars. I got the impression that the poster's guitar was quite new. I've had a USA tele for 15 years without a problem.

yeah blackie wasn't the best example.

I have a MIM Strat and after a year or 4 the lacquer around the frequent open chords started to wear.
I've seen so many artists with worn fretboards   if it's really completely new; that it shouldn't be....
or he's been practicing 24/7 :p

I think a lot depends on your playing style. I have a very light touch so the string never touches the fretboard, it just sits on the fret. I've never even broken a string.

have to agree with you joe youll find more agressive players tend to wear the fretboard a lot more ive also noticed this more on guys playing blues.

If you feel inspired turn it into a lesson and show us all how you do it.

Yeah I would love to know the theory behind that. All I can do is the basic blues that justin does, along with the extensions but you are using chords and single line stuff together? I'm pretty much a beginner so this seems really cool to me, how can I learn this type of thing?

Well, the basic 12-bar blues is the basis. It then seems he puts some extra notes and shifts the patterns as seen in this lesson.

Next, listen to it repeatedly and try to get small sections at a time.

 I found some sort of program that lets you download youtube videos, and then another that rips the audio off of the video file. Then I slowed it down, but the perfect view he gives us on the video helps as well.

Other members will point you in the right direction as well.

Have fun with it! :)

Really nice playing, i love that blues/rock shuffle style. Its looks to me like you built it around a 12 bar blues with some partial open chords and strong root notes. Really nice, you should record it as a backing track then really go to town with some blues lead over the top!

Great stuff  :D

This absoluely rocks. By far the best 12 bar blues riffs I have ever heard. It is definately a mixture of Blues and Rock, this would be ideal to solo over. Usually when I play these twelve bar blues they sound very old and sometimes out dated. I beleive you have managed to bring bar blues back to the modern era. Top job.
