I was able to restore my tab of Little Martha from backup tapes
(thank goodness for backups !).  Here it is again.

                        Little Martha
                     by: Duanne Allman

  Playing notes:

  This instrumental is played in open E tuning (E B E G# B E).
  Rather than tuning the 3rd, 4th and 5th strings up (which can
  be really stressful on the neck), you can tune down to open D
  (D A D F# A D) and capo at the second fret.

  The thumb keeps time with a monotonic bass line while the
  fingers play the melody.  The structure of the tune is:

      1 - Intro
      2 - Part 1 ending with [1.]
      3 - Repeat Part 1 ending with [2.]
      4 - Part 2
      5 - Repeat Part 1 up until [To Coda]
      6 - Coda

Chords used:  numbers in grid indicate frets
              numbers in parentheses are suggested fingerings (1=index,2=middle,etc)

        E B E G#B e
       +-----------+
E       0 0 0 0 0 0  (pretty obvious !)
A       5 5 5 5 5 5  (1st finger barre)
C#m/E   x x 0 8 9 9  (x x 0 2 3 3)
C#m/B   x 0 x 8 9 9  (x 0 x 2 3 3)
A/B     x 0 x 5 5 5  (1st finger barre)
B       x 0 x 7 7 7  (1st finger barre)
B7      x 0 x 1 0 2  (x 0 x 1 0 3)
E/G#    4 0 0 3 0 0  (3 0 0 1 0 0)
F#      2 0 0 1 0 0  (3 0 0 1 0 0)
       +-----------+

 h = hammer on
 p = pull off

 4    2
 - or -  =  time signature
 4    4

 Timing is as follows:
      1   .   2   .   3     .   4    .
      one &   two &   three &   four &
