Notes: This is my original version of Jerry Reed's song "East Bound and Down." I came up with this about 30 years ago and never have actually played this in any band setting, only at occasional jam sessions where this song is pulled out of the hat. I have been asked to tab this song in the past and only got around to doing it today. Part A is almost entirely melodic. For Part B, while not melodic, I give two variations to play around with. For this version you should be able to comfortably play the 2nd string with your middle finger (inside strings) which adds to its bouncy feel. Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
