The Black Keys do an absolutely amazing version of a classic song called "Stagger Lee" based on the folk character.

It is currently my favorite song, and I desperately want to learn it, and I think a lot of other people would be benefit from it as its blends genres somewhat and I think is on an open tuning and incorporates slide work.

Any help with this song would be so greatly appreciated. All the tabs I have found online and pretty much crap, and I haven't been able to find a lesson either.

Album Version:

Badass live version (maybe the best live performance I've ever seen on a network TV show)

That tone is just killer

I would love some help with this song more than I can express. It's so just...well it's just freaking badass. And again, I think it would make a great lesson and would benefit many users and open them up to a great artist and niche musical group of raw, overdriven blues-influenced rock outfits like The Black Keys and the White Stripes.

Thanks in advance for any consideration you give this.

My first observations is, that he seems to be using a thumbpick or possible thumb/nail in conjunction with his second and third fingers to pick both the bass note and higher notes simultaneously. Similar to the idea behind "chicken pickin", but without having to grip a regular pick with thumb and index, so you just use thumb or thumbpick.
