« Last post by chuckm on August 08, 2017, 09:53:54 am »
I don't suppose anyone has tab for this?      I could not find any.      If not, maybe I'll take a stab at it.

Here is the tune...I assume that Nokie is playing the lead.

Chords & Tabs / Re: My Own True Love
« Last post by chuckm on July 28, 2017, 08:22:38 am »
OK...I'm finally getting back to this.    Who played the lead on the recording....was this Nokie?   It did not seem like Bob Bogle style to me.

I tried working this out in a few different positions (around the 4th fret, around the 12th fret, with some open strings)   but have settled on the tab below. This sounded the best to me and for me was the easiest to play.     I welcome any corrections or improvements.

At some point I'll work out the backing guitar parts....but for now this is what I have.

Maria- Tom here.   Thanx for gettin' back to Walt
with the 'Night Train' clarification.   We 'pretty
much' at this point, have to stick to Danny's 'ten'
song set 'cause I've been assigning the lead parts.
Still not sure who will be playing bass or rhythm to
each song but am making 'good progress' filling out
his band.   

Sounds great!
