For beginner level it is quite good. The body of the song is there, and there is plenty of room for embellishment as a player gains experience.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm a beginner-intermediate player myself. I actually took a tab by Ross Nickerson in scruggs style as a starting point for the melody and adapted it to clawhammer. While I play clawhammer style, I don't play much old time music so I'm always trying to adapt other genres. Sometimes it's really difficult. I've found that simple tabs are much better than complicated tabs for initial learning and then it's easy to add embellishments later. It's much easier that way to emphasize the melody (in my opinion) than to simply try to learn a more complicated TAB. Terry
