Natchez Trace, Marcel Ardans (Intermediate)

I recently had a long time friend of mine ask for a simplified version of this tune. Normally when guitarists take on this type of material its all improvisational and no real attempt is made to play the melody. Not so here, this is a very honest and approachable version of the actual melody to Natchez Trace. Not Tony’s break and not something I just made up. Enjoy!

(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).)
