I was listening to this the other day and thought I knew how to play it....until I picked up my guitar and realized that I did not..  Anyone have tab for this?      If not I'll dig in and figure it out....it's fun anyways.

So there are 2 different recordings.    I'm referring to the version on the 1960 Walk Don't Run Album (A cover of the original 1951 version by Jimmy Forrest).   They also recorded a different version in 1964.    Here is the 1960 version I am referring to.

The Ventures arrangement of "Night Train" on their album Walk:Don't Run!(Their very 1st album) is a wonderfully sophisticated rock/jazz/pop treat.
This rates among my favorite recordings, and is a perfect example of the music which I listened to intently that taught me how to I wanted to play the guitar.

Jeff's comments are right on.   I really like the jazzy feel this tune has as well..
Anyway, I have completed my take at tab for this.  I don't think the 2nd verse is quite right...I cant get the ringing sound of the strings...it may be played in a different position on the neck, but this is close. 
Any updates or corrections are welcome.
Hope you enjoy playing this as much as I do

Night Train
The Ventures (1960 recording)
Tabbed by chuckm

Basically a I-IV-V progression in A.
I have marked the chord changes with A,D, and E.
I play the chords as: A (577655)and A6 (xx7675),
D9 (x54555), E9 (x76777).You may prefer other chord voicings.

Listen to the recording for timing, rhythm and embellishments.
