The Tennessee Toad

Leo Kottke

6- and 12-String Guitar

Tabbed by doctor gwaihir

Tuning low to high: AEAEAc#


The recording on the album is in an open A on a 12-string, but I usually play in open C 
[CGCGCe] on a 6-string.
If you have a 12-string you can hit notes of the same pitch but different timbre on 
different strings using the octave strings.
The first and last lines are played freely, and the rest of the tune is played with swing.
And you'll want to use a slide for most of this.

Have fun!
