Crossing The Cumberlands

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Unknown/None Chosen  Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by mwblake, updated: 9/7/2018
Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: I have tried to accurately transcribe the playing of Alan O'Bryant on the Nashville Bluegrass Band's recording of this song [on their album "Twenty Year Blues"] although there are a couple of places where I remain unsure of exactly what he played [bars 28 & 29 being one!]. Most of it is bona fide though, I would say, with a melodic A part and single string B part. A great medium paced tune with lovely cascading melodies. Enjoy!

Upon first hearing this song, I knew I had to learn it. Unlike many other tabs, I was instantly able to follow and recognize the tune with yours. Thanks so much for the great job getting it right!

How do you read these TABLEDIT tabs? Everytime I download one, the formatting is all screwed up and it comes out as a bunch of gibberish. Thanks.

To read TablEdit files, you need to go to www.tabledit.com amd download their viewer called "TefView" - it's free and bug free too. Then you'll be cooking! Martin

For anyone interested, here's the man himself (Alan O'Bryant) playing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecTNYVwFHL8 Interestingly, I think he might be playing the end of the 7th bar differently from the tab. This doesn't detract from the greatness of this tab of course!
