Hello folks.

I've been a constant reader of this newsgroup, but never contributed
anything so far.  So, I decided to take some time and type up some tab
stuff during my work. ;^)  Following is a blues tune called "Backwater
Blues" that I happened to find in a magazine called "Accoustic Guitar
yesterday at a nearby CD shop.  It wasn't so hard and fun to play.
Since tab form can't express time interval, I hope you will figure
that out by feeling.  Once you get used to the progression, you can
also enjoy improvising your own style too.
