David Beckingham – Whistling Milkman (Tab)

David Beckingham – Whistling Milkman (Tab)

Is there such thing as milkmen anymore? If there is, they’re certainly not whistling. Nevertheless, here’s another expertly arranged tune from David Beckingham. This time a tune from UK fingerpicking guitarist Dave Evans. If you want more, here are all his tabs so far:

The Stripper
Mississippi Blues
In the Mood
If I Had You

    It does sound like the kind of tune a milkman would have sung though… at least in my mind.

    Had the old Sad Pig Dance LP, well, it must have been ages ago, now. Good stuff, too.

    Well, if there is a whistling milkman anywhere around the world, I would imagine he would sound like this.
    This tab is so light and happy, I LOVE IT!

    Ron: Dave Evans was new to be but I’ve been checking out his stuff.

    Luke: Good luck with it.

    Lyndsey: Glad you like it.

    Love this happy tune — get’s stuck in your head. Does anyone have the chords written out so we can create a backup track in iReal B (the iPhone app Mr. Beckingham uses)?

    Cool! I downloaded it via jDowloader and I play it in half speed. I have to practice and then I may ask friend of mine, bassist, whether he would play with me.

    What is that nifty device that gives you your backdrop accompaniment? I would really like to have one.

  13. Woodshed August 10th, 2013 10:42 pm

    Sharon: It’s the iReal Book iOS app.
