Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Artist: Bert Jansch
Track title: Bett's Dance
Album: Toy Balloon (and Live at the 12 Bar)
Tuning: DADGBD

This is a really nice instrumental. Bert plays it using a "double dropped D" tuning, which 
is basically a drop-D with the addition of the 1st string tuned to D also. I tabbed it in 
a quarter-note based beat (notes are triplets), which was easier for me but my non-musically
trained mind suspects that it should be some kind of eighth-note beat. Doesn't really matter 
anyway, as you'll probably want to work with the record to get the feel down. There are some 
parts which should be strummed (you'll see) but I tabbed it as best I could nonetheless. 
Experiment with fingerings as there are many possibilities - for instance, I couldn't make my
mind up whether the first note of the main riff was an open 1st (as I tabbed it) or 3rd fret of 
the B. Some places it sounds open, some fretted. So make your own mind up. It's tabbed up until 
just before the last repeat of the theme - then there's some improvised noodling at the end which
I didn't tab. The live version is very similar with a few small differences. Have fun! :o)

Rhythm: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4 (various!)
