Running From Home - Bert Jansch

To play this i hold down the 6th string on the first fret with my thumb throughout
the song.
I play the 6th and 4th strings with my other thumb in an alternating bass style while 
playing the melody notes with my fingers on strings 1, 2 and 3.

The letters under the tab in the intro section below indicate what fingers (or thumb) 
to use to play the notes above them.
p = thumb, i = 1st finger, m = 2nd finger, a = 3rd finger.

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 4th fret

Excellent tab. Thank you.

I hadn't realised how similar this song is to Bert's arrangement of She Moved Through the Fair which also alternates between the F and G chord shapes all the way through.

Some very minor suggestions: 1) I would say that the difficulty is intermediate rather than novice. 2) You might also add that it's in the key of B (G relative to capo) and that the chords are G and F13 (relative to the capo). Thanks again.
