Capo
3rd fret
Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Artist: Bert Jansch
Track title: Down River
Album: Thirteen Down (Bert Jansch Conundrum)
Tuning: EADGBE
Capo: 3rd fret

Another one of Berts easier tunes, and this one is very nice; recorded as 
"The Bert Jansch Conundrum" in 1979. The track features accordian and violin
but works very well with just guitar and vocals. Here I've tabbed the intro 
and first verse but you may well find slight variations between verses. It's 
in 4/4 but there is a bar of 2/4 and 6/4. The asterisks are a guide :o)

Rhythm 4/4 (2/4, 6/4)
