Aw, shucks, Jeff!  ;^)  Seriously, though, I appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment.  And thanks for the CAVU wish, too!  In fact, I took advantage of it and enjoyed a short CAVU X/C yesterday!  It was terrific!  :^)

Hi Bill:
         I can see those big red eyed steel hoofed steers and them ghost cowboys ridin up a draw...hehe.. Im trying to learn this song by of my first serious attempts...thanks for the great example!

Thanks, Wally!   That's very kind of you!  It's a fun tune to pick!  You probably already know this, but I do this version in Am (Gm tuning capoed up two).  I can play it in G tuning in Em, but the Am has more punch and drive.

Thanks, again, for the kind comment.

Hey Bill, Great job! Do have a tab of this arrangement. Yippie Ai Ay!

Thanks, Rollingwolf.  I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my arrangement.

I play by ear...I've never been able to figure out tab, so there is no tab for this.  However, I can tell you I play it in Am (Gm tuning, capoed up two frets).  I hope that helps a little.  :^)

Take care,

Thanks Bill. I've got a ways to go before I can capture the essence of a song like that by ear alone. I play this tune wit a guitarist I jam with. He sings it in Bm so I'll listen to your arrangement for ideas, and then just capo it up further. Thanks again.
