Always thought that was Jesse and Frank James. Tab is here.

I checked the Jesse James one. That is not it. Can't find Jesse and Frank James.

I used to play this one 15 years ago with the Tucker Mountain Boys around St. Louis....

Drop a line, I'll respond with arrangement...

Right, it's a song called "Glendale Train". We play it frequently in our jam. Jesse James is entirely different. You can get a tab from Jack Hatfield's site ($1 per tab). He has two different versions actually, one in G and another in D. I have the first one, which was a bit more involved than I wanted, so recently I worked up my own version, which of course I like better. I haven't tabbed it out yet, but I need to do that, so if you'd like a copy let me know and I will finish that up and fax you a copy or email you a gif version. Let me know. You might want to try one of Jack's versions first, though. You can find them at www.hatfieldmusic.com/page2.html.

I would like to see what you worked up on it if possible.

OK, I've posted my version at http://www.rksmarketing.com/banjo/ . Just click on the file you want and you should then be able to either print it or download it (right click then Save As).

I'd be interested in your feedback.

Thank you Rich. Now I have one question. What is that sixth line for? Or did you use it to show the chord?

You mean the lines at the top for the last 8 bars? That's part of the tab. The two little dots before and after the double bar near the beginning and end of the tab signify that you play through the tab twice and the lines at the top mean you play the 4 bars under the 1. the first time through and the 4 bars under the 2. the second time through.

This is a standard way of writing tab so you don't have to write out the whole thing when much of it is duplicated.
