My friend Jim Cohen suggested tabbing out Randy Beavers' version of "You Don't Know Me" from the video of his performance in the Zumsteel Room at the 2004 International Steel Guitar Convention. I said "I will if you will" so we teamed up on this one. After a LOT of time and discussion here's our best effort. Questions and comments are always welcome.

If you're not familiar with Randy, he's an outstanding steel player. Not only was he on the road for years with LeeAnn Womack, he can play any type of music from country to jazz to pop to rock and is a master of interesting voicings. He's got 4 CD's that I know of, "A Few Of My Favorite Things", "Still, A Way Without Words", "The Next Step", and a twin steel CD with Russ Hicks, "A Little R & R". Lots of variety in his song choices: George Benson, Steely Dan, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, Hoagey Carmichael, Carpenters, etc.

Randy's personal tuning is a little different...Randy's posted several times over the years with his setup. Here's one thread to check out https://bb.steelguitarforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=236653&highlight=

This tab is written for a fairly standard Emmons setup. Knee Levers are as follows
D: lowers 4 and 8 1/2 tone
F: raises 4 and 8 1/2 tone
E, EE: E lowers 2 1/2 tone (at half stop) and lowers 9 1/2 tone and "EE" lowers 2 whole tone
G: raises 1 whole tone, 2 1/2 tone, and lowers 6 whole tone.
** NOTE: I've put the times on the video at the top of each page

Here it is on youtube

Awesome. I sing this song and play a jazz piano arrangement to it in my lounge lizard set and have an acoustic guitar version too for my oldies pop set.

One of my favorite songs..

Now on steel.

Thanks!

Thank you all for your nice comments. Jim Cohen and I refused to give up on this one and did our best to get it as close as possible. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all and I'm sure I'll have a few new tab projects coming in 2019. Smile
