When Dave Matthews decided to ‘go solo’, he put out his first non-band album in 2003, Some Devil. It was still full of a lot of friends and they released *Gravedigger *as the first single. It has become one of Dave’s best-known songs, in spite of its dark overtones and mysterious mood. It uses some unusual, but relatively easy chords but the strumming is somewhat free form. The lesson mostly focuses on strumming with a light muting technique, counting eighth notes carefully, and hammer-ons to help color the overall sound.
