About this tab version
This is originally performed by big band, so this is simplified. The instrumental part is played by the brass section, and it's tough to imitate that, so feel free to diddle around and/or melt some faces. Here's a link to the original what for to get a feel for the syncopation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeLy8C-g27Y. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Let's go see my dear old mammy
