I also posted the print version. Check out the fingerings...lots of thumb. I really like it when I use these fingerings. Obviously, it could be done otherwise, but this arrangement gives it a great feel. Not perfect, but it's how I played it this morning.

Sounds Caribbean (sp?). Thanks for compiling the score on one page...

Here's the tab, if anyone wants it...

Marc, please revise your RH notation. The first bar should have 1 1 x x - but you have 1 1 1 1. I didn't look further. Unless I am missing something obvious, and your 1 in a circle means something else - in which case I am sorry for being so stupid...

I think there is T for thumb, but a little hard to read being in a circle.

Oh, I see - ones and tees. Sorry, Marc, but it is not very clear. Is it possible to try 1 and x?

Sorry lads. It is indeed 1's and T's. I normally use "TMI" fingering but something happened with this TAB over the several years it has been in my system. The program (TablEdit) default is the 1,2,T (circled) fingering and I suspect an upgrade caused it to revert. FWIW, the score also grew an extra sharp (putting it back into A where I had transposed it to D)...I removed the sharp but fixing the fingering would have taken more time than I had last night. I'll get to it.
