Song: MASH (Suicide is Painless) TV Theme
Words: Mike Altman
Music: Johnny Mandel
Transcribed by: Allen Victor

My First Tab. I tried to keep the timing right.

Dougie Fresh has the tablature of the lead melody, but I like adding the
background "filler" notes, so I made this tab. His tab is included below
mine. I would suggest using my tab if you have an acoustic guitar and want
to play solo, since an acoustic is used in the TV theme, and the added
notes sound better with an acoustic.

This is how I play the MASH Theme song on my $30 K-Mart guitar. It's
great to play as a solo!

I appreciate any comments on this.

Enjoy!

The last notes in parenthesis are what I would play if I had those
frets.
