Good job Mick. I would say you NAILED IT. (American slang that you did a great job). Ditto on the U tube or tab. Lee

http://www.thebritishsteeliessociety.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8775 I have now tabbed my version but not sure how to publish on this site. It can be found at the above location. If anyone wishes to copy it and publish on this site they are free to do so. Just hope it all makes sense as this is my first attempt at tab writing. The bar lines are merely to break up various phrases.

Here's Mick's tab. I used the forum's "tab" tag to convert the tab to a monospaced font... easier to read. Nice job, Mick!

I don't know, Keith. I guess it depends on the browser you're using. All I did was copy and paste Mick's tab from the site it was on to this site and put the Tab tags around it.

By the way, I notice that the tab does not display properly on my iphone. It looks fine on my ipad and imac, but not on the iphone for some reason.

Doug. I used a programme called Tab Writer 4 and eventually saved the result as a text file. When put on to the British site I had to use the BB code on site. If you pm me with an email address I can send you the original text file if you wish. I could also send the backing track as I have no idea how to get it on site. Hopes this all helps.

Whilst on the subject of tab, I am currently playing John Hughey's version of Hello Darling. It really tests your slanting skills on C6. One of the moves will be transferring from a forward slant to a reverse slant but keeping the lower note stationary, and in reverse, i.e. holding the higher note whilst raising the lower note one fret at a time for a total of three frets. Apart from a note on the tab how could I show this move using only the keys on the keyboard?

Any ideas would be great.
