Thanks Richard! I'm having a bit of a time figuring out your TAB but not to worry! I have loads of time on my hands now so I will dig in & work it out (hopefully!). Love this tune, thank you so much for taking the time to post this:) P.S. I may contact you with a few questions later.

Nan's Tab

Fiddle tuned GDGD vice GDAE, smallest, highest pitch string tuned to down to D and A string tuned down to G.



reading the tab, the top line is the highest pitch, smallest string. from first position from the nut, little finger reaching out to 5th position, then third finger twice, then back to little finger then 3rd finger 3rd finger little finger 3rd finger open strings and on. similar on other strings later. the low D and G strings with 0 are played open.



hope that makes sense.  Guess that is Richards tab
