Robert Earl Keen Jr. - Mariano


This is by no means a note-for-note transcription of the song.

What I have here is a general framework arranged for a Travis-picking acoustic guitar that is pretty
close to what is on the record. The progression is the same throughout the entire song. 

REK and Co. do a variety of little different stylistic slurs/flourishes throughout the song,
but you'll have to listen to the record if you want to figure those parts out.


Standard Tuning - Capo on 2 I believe (possibly 3), or adjust to suit your vocal range

That's basically it. There might be times where the Am (Bm technically) lick is repeated a few times in 
between verses. Listen to the record if you want to be accurate. Otherwise all the verses/lyrics follow 
this pattern.
