Song: This Old Guitar
Artist: John Denver
Tabbed by: Max Schmitz
Date: 1-30-04
Email: tgopack4@juno.com

Here's the updated version (I noticed some errors already). This is a great song!
There aren't any tabs yet, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Here's how I hear it.
Use a capo on the 2nd fret. Don't be too picky on hitting the right strings, it
will sound good anyway. Be expressive on the bass notes.  Email me if you notice
any errors.  Thanks and enjoy! Please RATE this tab.
