Hey Tim, very convenient that you posted this. I was just trying to learn it this morning. I assume the slur underneath some of the notes represents a pulloff?

The line is a slide...the curved one is a pull off.

It's just my own arrangement. I find most guys play it about the same.

This is one of those tunes I personally might play in high bass tuning (dADF#A)- just seems to fall more naturally for me there, without changing key.  Is anyone else using that?

Yes, I wanted to do this song for my last reenactment performance. Asked Tim to put it to TAB for me and I was playing it it in (dGDF#A) Have not tried it in a High bass tuning. Of course my problem is I play withtwo other guys that don't practice until the day before and one guy didn't know the chords to play in D and the other guy went a got chords for the Key of G. Anyone want to move out here and help me take this music seriously, signed FRUSTRATED...lol

Bingo Dan'l! That's what I did I jumped on the bones. Oh man, I started a month out with these guys. Picked the music, got everything, for the most part in the Key of D, got the sheet music with the chords listed above, sent to them and said just strum through it at least 20 minutes a day if you can,...NOPE they showed up late Friday night and that's when we started going over everything. The pressure was on myself to provide music for a little dance and gathering on Saturday evening. For the most part it was OK. I also play the fiddle on most of the songs. at times they were playing different chords which makes it hard to follow the melody in your head when that's happening. I envy Tim and his buddies and Mark Weems and his buddies. What does not kill makes you stronger? Too funny.

I don't know, sometimes what doesn't kill you makes you nauseous.
