Nice. Is this from tab?

Comment by Louis Ruoti on September 20, 2012 at 10:38am

Thanks very much Anthony...Sorry, it's not from tab. I play strictly by ear, and no song is ever the same twice.

Comment by Anthony Galligani on September 20, 2012 at 10:48am

Oh ... sorry I meant the basic melody. I do the same thing. I like what you did - very cool.

Tks again...I Googled the song for tabs, and came up with   http://www.strumhollow.com/free_tab.htm for free tabs - and they do have one for this song. There are probably other sites also.

Thanks Mark. I'd love to play a BR160 Adirondack. Mine is Sitka. Your's probably packs more of a wallop than mine.
