I just uploaded a TAB for this song I've been working on if anyone is interested.
I'm actually a beginner so please don't expect much. It might be a good foundation for someone wanting to make a better one.
Thanks.

That's hilarious. I didn't think your screen name had a connection to the band but i've always wondered if it did.

Terry this would be a great song to learn how to make augmented chords on the banjo. There are a lot of Gaug & Daug chords in this song.

I have no personal connection to the band.  They hit the U.S. when I was in the 6th grade and ever since then they haunted me because I could not escape it.  Before that people always called me Dick Clark, including teachers.  When trying to come up with a screen name, many other versions of my name were already being used, so I went with this and decided to embrace it.  Now when people ask me if I had a band back in the 60's I say "only really old people ask me that."

Hey Rick, 

You're way above my head on this one. I have zero music training. I think I know what you mean in a sense though. As I was tabbing it out, I found that the melody was not always within the chord and had to move one string one fret to replicate the sound. That must be the "aug" you are talking about. I'm a little old to learn new tricks at a fast pace but it's nice to absorb something once in a while. I'm now going to tackle Love Letters in the Sand which was originally recorded by Gene Austin in 1931 and later covered by Mac Wiseman. Most people remember the Pat Boone version.

I guess I'm one of those "really old people" LOL. I was in my teens at the time so I loved their stuff. That makes me just a few years older than you....
