Heh. I didn't expect to hear one of Warren's songs done on a Banjo. It suits the song pretty well Kudos.
Maybe when I've been playing a bit longer.
btw, it's 2 days till the 10th anniversary of his passing. I'll have drink to him tonight down the pub!

Love it! I'm a huge Warren Zevon fan. Any chance you could share the tabs or chord progression? (just starting to learn and looking for fun songs to learn).

Really enjoy your other recordings, great sound!

Sure! I just play it in Em. It's Em/ G/ C /G /D (repeat). The chorus is C / G / D/ Em (repeat). The bridge part is C/ G/C /G /Em/ D/ Em.

But you can also find chords online. They might do it in a different key, but just use your capo to find one that's comfortable for you.
