Sister Madly
(N. Finn)


NOTES:

-- to play this the way it was originally played, all chords on the
verses are bar chords:  Em on the 7th fret, A on the 5th fret, and
C on the 8th fret.

-- in the tab of the Richard Thompson solo, the notation "11^" means to
play the 11th fret but bend the note up (not necessarily all the way up
to the tone of the 12th fret--just a quick, ornamental bend.  you know,
Thompson is famous for this kind of thing.)


INTRO:  Em  A  Em  C
