Notes: Bill Keith was scheduled to teach at the Alabama Folk School at Camp McDowell this spring, and consequently I was very excited to get to pick his brain for 4 whole days. However, he unfortunately had to decline due to a "health issue beyond his control." So, I thought I'd just learn a few of his tunes anyway. Why not start with one of the first ones that made him famous… the "Devi's Dream" and "Sailor's Hornpipe" medley from the "Livin' On The Mountain" album? This should be a note for note transcription, with the possible exception that there were a couple of spots where he may have used a "pull-off" lick getting to the A minor chord, but I couldn't really tell. I didn't include it, so the A minor bits are played around the 5th fret, instead of the first. Adjust settings so that chords are displayed as letter names only, tab is displayed at 4 bars per line, and view is scaled to 16th notes. I wish him well and hope that his health improves so that he might make it back in the future.
