About this tab version
A complete tab in C standard tuning. It can be flat picked or finger picked or even using Maybelles own picking style. Was this info helpful? Yes No
The Carter Family  My Dixie Darling tab
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XnMaHQi6L8

The original sounds in Ab  with guitar tuned in a C tuning
I used Audacity freeware software to change the pitch to make it easier to work on 


Note the tempo only picks up at the beginning of bar 3
