This is more than just the song from Popeye, I promise. This tab is the beginner version of this classic melody, that means two A’s and two B’s of straight melody. This melody is as straight as you can get and arranged to fit easily as possible under the fingers. The melody of Sailor’s Hornpipe takes you farther up the neck than most beginner fiddle tunes. Which makes it a good choice for the player that is on the cusp of trying harder material.
(Beginning guitar tabs include a clear simple version of the melody as well as chord markings above. My tabs at this level are intended to be affordable, to the point, and no nonsense. Perfect for the beginner that wants a straightforward version of a classic melody or the intermediate to advanced player that wants to learn a melody but embellish it themselves. Some fiddle tunes are difficult enough that a beginning or even intermediate version is unavailable.)
