Artists:Doc and Richard Watson
Album: Three Pickers (Live)

Tabbed by: Marcus Ryan Jan.2nd 2006
I'm not much into bluegrass but this one is great. Everything but the solos was taken
from a tab by Pancake (whereabouts unknown). On the live album they play with capos on
the 2nd fret, and the chords are available on the internet. There are a few other short
riffers thrown in the song, but they can be figured out if you can learn these runs.

Key of Bmin

This is when the first solo comes in. It is used again later in the song when Doc
plays along at a lower position on the neck. Using the same formations this can
easily be figured out.

you made a bunch of mistakes and instead of slideing to the 12 fret the song is alot easier to play if you slide to the 7th on the 1st string
