Subject: TAB: Fahey's "Joe Kirby Blues"

                           Joe Kirby Blues
                            by John Fahey


John Fahey has a genius for simple beauty and this tune, from his old
Takoma LP DAYS HAVE GONE BY, is a prime example.  This was tabbed by
Dave Cohen (user643309@aol.com) and transcribed by me.

Dave suggests these fingerings (T = thumb, I = index, M = middle,
R= ring, L = little, O = open string):

Am in Part A:         D7 in Part A:        Am in Part B
3  M                  O                    5  I
3  M                  3  I                 8  L
2  I                  5  L                 O
O                     O                    7  M
O                     5  R                 O
O                     O                    O

                    John Boston
