Notes: The famous tune by Jay Ungar, used in Ken Burns equally famous PBS Civil War series. He plays it in the key of D. I arranged it in G, but play it on a cello banjo so it actually comes out in D.

Thank you for this tab. Great job! I play everything out of G so this suits me wonderfully.

Thanks, SixBs. G is a great tuning and I thank the bluegrass world for it!

Thank you for this Tab, Janet B! It captures the melody so nicely, while remaining simple and not getting into too much complexity. Very playable and enjoyable!

Thanks for the nice feedback. Today I just arranged another TOTW by Jay Ungar — Thanksgiving Waltz. My tabs are on my site, free. Hundreds of them…
