In you’re anything like me you heard this fiddle tune for the first time on Tony Rice’s album Church Street Blues. It has become the standard version of the melody and bluegrass musicians on any instrument will copy his approach to the melody. This tab is undeniably influenced by Tony’s Interpretation, though it’s not note for note you will readily see the influence. This tab also includes an interpretation of Tony’s tag on the Church Street Blues version of Cattle In The Cane.
(Intermediate guitar tabs include an ornamented version of the melody, chord markings above, and more often than not, a kick-off and a tag. Where the beginning guitar tabs had quarter notes expect there to now be a steady stream of eighth notes! These tabs, though more difficult than the beginning tabs, do not stray far from the melody like the advanced guitar tabs. Intermediate tabs without a bluegrass kick-off or tag generally come from other traditions such as Irish Fiddle Music (Frank’s Reel) or Spanish Folk Songs (La Borrachita).)
