LAST STEAM ENGINE TRAIN
John Fahey/Leo Kottke
Tabbed by Richard Darsie (darsie@ece.ucdavis.edu)
    (I consider this version a "workable approximation")
Standard tuning, key of E
4 beats per measure, marked by vertical bars

>>>>>>Your goal is to play this at Warp 10;<<<<<<
>>>>>>start at half-impulse if necessary.<<<<<<

Key to symbols:

  s = slide up to note
  b = bend note up a half-step
  h = hammer-on note

The Last Steam Engine Train by John Fahey
Arranged by Leo Kottke
This is from an obscure Italian guitar book.  I'm not sure which
album this was transcribed from; probably "Greenhouse".

A couple other versions have been submitted, but this one is different than
either of those; I thought there would be some interest.

Sequence: (there are variations in some of the repeats not tabbed)
