John King – Swallowtail (Tab)

John King – Swallowtail

A while back I tabbed out the first half of this legendary performance from John King – Larry O’Gaff – but I sucked much too hard to take on the second half. Luckily, Ukulele Tim was up to the task and posted Swallowtail on his blog. After a certain amount of begging and pleading, he was kind enough to let me post the tab up here so the two could be united.

I’d love to give you some guidance on how to play it but I still suck too hard to get to grips with it. The best advice I can offer is to subscribe to Tim’s blog Ukulele Secrets.
