Subject: TAB: 'Delia' by Martin Simpson


I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. It took me a lot of close
listening at 1/2-speed to catch exactly what Simpson was doing
on this one, and I ran through a couple of pretty exotic tunings
(well, he is very fond of 'em) before deciding it was, after all,
in standard... and then I asked Simpson himself after a gig, only
to be told it was in dropped D. (All of which only concerns 3 notes
in measure 10 in any case.)

Please feel free to mail me and say hello - all comments, corrections,
and general feedback very welcome.

Barry

As arranged and played by Martin Simpson on 'Smoke and Mirrors'.

I haven't included the vocal part here - in any case, I strongly
recommend that you hear the album to get a proper idea of the overall
feel of the piece.
