This is a transcription I did for my friend Jacques. It is the intro of Billy Strings’ Fretboard Journal performance of Tennessee Stud. It’s a bluesy free improvisation in the D position, capo 3. Enjoy!
(Advanced guitar tabs generally include a very ornamented version of the melody, chord markings above (with extra extensions and variations), kick-offs, tags, and improvisation that drifts far from the melody at hand. Expect to come across hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides and more in all kinds of combinations as well as syncopation, triplets and other rhythmic challenges. These tabs are excellent if you want to get inside the head of another improviser and explore the choices that an advanced flatpicker might consider.)
