I always found this to be a real hard one!  Watch Paul Draper's video where he not only plays but sings it too... I think he made a deal with the Devil.  lolol

I wound up just playing a stripped down simplified version and figured I'd let others do the fancy footwork on it when it comes up in a jam or gig.  ;)

I have always particularly liked Mara's version.  Really gets DOWN and greasy.

Speaking of greasy, I just made some cat head bicuits.  Got a bottle of buttermilk, and trying out various biscuit recipes.

well done!! It's the move from 2 to 5 and the occasional 3rd fret thrown in there that gets me. Lol

It did take me a while to learn this one too. I still get a little wound up sometimes.
