Attached is the tab for Doug Smith's arrangement of "I Swear"
from his CD "Deep Heart".  Doug's tab is posted with his
permission.   No commercial relationship....I'm a *bedroom
player* who wants to share this *terrific* arrangement and
introduce Doug to those who've never heard his dynamite
playing.   Doug was featured in the May/June 96 issue of
Fingerstyle Guitar magazine.  John Schroeter...if you read this
you need to come up with a tab book/CD package of Doug's
stuff!

You may not recognize "I Swear" by the title but am willing to
bet you'll instantly recognize it when you play it.  Also...a
mpeg. file of "I Swear" and "Nights in White Satin" can be
found at Rich Martin's great homepage ( http://www.teleport.
com/~richm/dougsm.html )  Doug's stuff is available from
Acoustic Music Records 1-800--649-4745.   His "Deep Heart"
and "The Best of Doug Smith" have been at the top of my
CD stack for some time now.

Doug can be reached a DougnBarb@aol.com
