Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Artist: Bert Jansch
Track title: Pretty Polly
Album: Jack Orion
Tuning: DADGAD
Capo: 1st fret

Berts take on the classic murder ballad is full of energy and utilizes the classic
alternating bass pattern. Like Jack Orion, the guitar part is hard to catch in places as
the vocals and Renbourns lead drown it out, but I'm pretty sure this is what he is
playing. Fingerings can be changed in places to suit your fingers. This is a typical
verse; it will vary slightly throughout the song, so play it freely. The intro is just
the first two bars repeated. :o)
