Notes: This is an untitled tune on page 12 of the Hamblen Collection, a compilation of tunes from the 1800's (this is only available from the Library of Congress, in facsimile). Since the title 'Untitled Tune' is confusing, I think 'Hamblen 12' serves a decent stand-in, and anyone familiar with the Collection will understand the meaning. If you're curious about this collection, a Google search will be very fruitful! This tab is to go with a previously uploaded MP3 of me playing the tune (included here), and a MIDI file of this tab. 'Hamblen 12' has been lots of fun in a session and I'm hoping more people get to play it!

Notes: I got the third part from the playing of Franklin George, at the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention, 2013, in a jam session. There was some interest in tab after posting a video of the tune. Note this one might be updated or replaced after feedback and further edits.
