Title:  The Riverboat
Artist: Dave Goodman
Album:  Rocks, Skies & Waters
Author: _arokh_

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 1st fret


This is a beautiful fingerstyle song by the Canadian Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Dave 
(now living in Bremen, Germany). The song is build up of 4 parts.

It starts with Part A (repeat several times).
Then Part B leads into the verse.
During the verse he plays part C (repeat).
In between verses he plays again part A (repeat) and then B to lead into the next verse.
In the solo he plays part D.

It's a good idea to practice the parts individually and then stitch them together.
Then just listen to the song and you'll easily get the hang of it.

To get the essence of the song, you could play AABCCDA.

I hope you like the tab and have fun playing it.
