Capo
5th fret
Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Artist: Bert Jansch
Track title: The Mountain Streams
Album: The Ornament Tree
Tuning: DADGAD
Capo: 5th fret

Well, traditional songs don't come much better than this, and with Bert's guitar part
this one knocks you off your socks. The harder you play it, the better it sounds. It's
pretty straight forward and there's nothing much to watch for, except that the rhythm
swaps between 6/8 and 9/8 - it's pretty easy to get though. I didn't indicate the beats
like I usually do as I'm sure you'll get it no problem. The long bars are 9, short ones 6.
I tabbed a typical verse and then the instrumental break, that's all you need to get the 
idea. As usual, Bert varies slightly from verse to verse - nothing to worry about though.
You're going to love singing this song! Enjoy :o)

Rhythm: 6/8 and 9/8
