    Excellent arrangement, DeG. Thanks for sharing.

    This is really cool, and I’ve been enjoying playing it a lot, but I would, if I may, offer a slight nitpicking quibble (and the evidence of the past quarter century would tend to suggest that, whether I’m allowed to or not, I’m the kind of git who does little else). I find that the A chord in bar 17 jars somewhat, and would tentatively suggest that an F might be a better bet. I’ve been tending to render it at frets 10, 9, 8 and 12, reading from top to bottom, if that makes any sense, and it seems to work.

    Please, if anyone has a suggestion please post it. I appreciate the input. Alf, the F does sound good there as well. I think the important thing is that the C string is fretted at 9, and the A string is fretted at 12 (both notes are A, right) Beyond that, I settled on the rest of the chord, mostly to make it easier to play with my fat fingers :-)

    Glad you like the tab!

Got something to say?
