Here's a way of archiving chord melody arrangements without the tedium of tabbing out every note..I call it "short tab"like shorthand! The first number is the fret,then pedals( 4-8 on C6, knee levers are named by note they give you on open strings..ie:10/56Bb..would be 10th fret 5+6 pedals + Bb knee lever .This is not "paint by numbers" tab, You have to know the melody in your head to use this! Often your melody and passing notes on KLs, and I try to show different positions the chords are available!..JS
