Thanks Carl. I surfed around the web a bunch when this tune has come up and did not find the dots. Good job. A tab cut. Listen to the youtubes and such for timing if possible and no promises and hope you can decode my sad cut at ABC and fiddle tabs....Maybe compare with ABC above the tabs and the sheet pdf to get an idea about what is going on.

Don, The sheet music on this link is completely identical to the one I posted. I'm sorry but your abc did not translate very meaningfully at: concertina.net/tunes_convert.html I tried to provide the correct headers. The midi was almost recognizable but the 3rd and 4th lines made no sense and the sheet music looked at bit strange. Carl
Hi Carl, yes, did not try to write the ABC to convert. We already have the dots/sheet music. On the Bob vs Nashville, there is one note difference. Is one a typo. The second bar after ||: goes to the f note on Bob's and the g note on Nashville. Later on they are both g notes. Trivial and who knows or cares. nice tune anyway.
My ABC notes were to use in comparing with the tabbed notes. Timing is hard to note in a simple tab like this and I find it easier to try to play the tune using the ABC notes and using the sheet to work on timing nuances. For those who don't speak ABC at least maybe my so called tabs might help some. What do I know. Anyway, enjoy. Don

Well, if anyone cares, while I'm listening to Ernie Carpenter play it, it sounds like he goes to the F in that first 3/4 measure early on in the tune but then later seems to use G all the rest of the time. In the 2nd 3/4 measure he seems to always use G. Also there is a bit of a timing change in how he plays the first few notes in those measures; sometimes there's a tie to the 3/4 measure and sometimes there isn't. Go figure. Maybe he's just as inconsistent as the rest of us.
Kind of interesting Carl. Seems to be g in some of the half dozen of so youtube videos. Don't have Ernie's.
One by kitsilanogal, youtube.com/watch?v=IkbSmv9DX1...e=related shows her playing a version slow and you can see her fingering and lots of g's. On full screen version, little out of focus but good one to see what she is doing.
