Does anyone have an absolutely accurate
tab of Together Again (break) exactly as played by Tom Brumley on the original cut?
I've learned it about 92% but there are
a couple of moves that are still frustrating
me.

Hey Rod; which 8% are you having difficulties with. I could tab the whole thing for you; but if it is just a small part, that would be easier. I have the CD and I would have to listen to it again; as I have already added my little twist to it; just like Tom told me too. He heard me play it once and said:"Hey Ricky, why would you want to play it just like the original recording; don't you have anything from yourself to add". I looked at him and said;"out of respect Tom"; and he looked back and said;" if your doing it out of respect for me; I would respect you more if you played it the way you felt it; as I did back then, and as I do now". Go figure.

Thanks, Anders, but that's not quite
it.

Ricky: I agree it's good and fun to
depart from the original. I do it often,
sometimes because I have to for lack of
ability to transfer what I hear from
my ears to my hands and feet.

Together Again has been an enigma since I
first started steel about 6 years ago. I
have loved that steel work since I heard
Ralph Emery introduce it back in (?)'64.

Fooling around with it recently, I bent
the bar back to lower my 5th at that
crucial point easing off the A pedal to go
from IV to V and went nuts. "So that's it,"
I said to myself and headed to my shop to
fabricate a vertical lever to lower the
B's. That move got me from 82% accurate
to the 92% mentioned above.

I'm going to try to tab it myself the way
I do it and send it to you to edit if that's
possible. Thanks again for your offer to
help.

Anders thanks for posting a link to my transcription. I worked from the original recording to make that transcription. And, it turned out just like I was originally taught in 1970. Twice done, by two people, same result. rmason, what part isn't right? I'd like to know so I can improve my transcription.

The transcription is not my interpretation of the song.

Thanks.

Hey Rod; that will be fine. I have no problem checkin' out your tab. I have found it very rewarding to try and tab something I hear also; because as you are listening to it over and over; your ears really fine tune to what's goin' on. I found that after I have learned something and tab it out; after a while I go back; and almost everytime, I find something I was missin' or didn't pickup the first time. I think Peggys' tab is pretty dang close to right; I'll have to go listen to it again and look at her tab. But when she first posted it; I looked at her tab and listened to her sound file; and remembered saying to myself:"That's pretty dang good Peg". I'll check it out.

Peggy,
I bookmarked your page a couple of months ago
and remembered you had that song tabbed,
so it was easy to link to it.
I think your "players room" is a great idea,
even if the version is not 100% "correct" by
all ears it could be a valuable help and kickoff
for new players tryin to learn new songs.
Keep up the great work and keep new songs
coming to your "players room",thanks Peggy.
Also thanks to Ricky Davis for posting his
tabs of the original version here on the forum,
sure seems to be a nice guy,thanks Ricky.

Your mighty welcome Anders; and I also think Peggy's players area is wonderful. I had the pleasure of meeting Peg; when she was over here in the states from the orient; and she is equally nice as talented. Keep up the great work Peg; and there is alot of players getting alot out of your teaching; I for one play "Together Again" using the part you have on the second bar.
