Re: [Harp-L] Help! I am looking for a song with special parameters.
I tabbed it out some years ago--and just play it from memory from time to
time. I can't find my old tab at the moment; but from some online sheet
music (cause my memory is pretty shoddy at times) I worked it out as
Don't know why | *8 blow bend*, 8 blow, 9 blow |
There's no sun | *8 blow bend*, 8 blow, 9 blow |
up in the sky | 8 blow, 9 blow, *9 blow bend*, 9 draw |
Stormy weather | *8 blow bend*, 8 blow, 9 blow, 6 blow |
Since my man and I ain't together | 8 draw--5 times; 7 blow, 6 draw, 7
blow, 6 blow
keeps rainin' all the time | 5 draw, 6 draw, 7 blow, *8 blow bend*, *8 blow
bend*, 8 blow.
The beginning notes can also be played in third position: 9 draw, *9
blow bend*, 10 draw.
Or tenth position: *9 blow bend*, 9 blow, *10 double blow bend*.
It's just a fun song to play around with and try to work out all the
And---pretty fun to play in the middle octave with overblows. Or the bottom
octave starting on a 1 overblow.
Any errors are certainly mine, but I hope this helps.
