     ALICE'S RESTAURANT - Arlo Guthrie
Tabbed by: Michael Kress
E-mail: micalk@sbcglobal.net

I modeled this tab after Arlo's live performance at the 2005 Farm Aid (on YouTube). This is the main 
part of it, the part most people are interested in, and I couldn't find one that matched it. I'll let
others be the judge of its accuracy, but I was very picky about about watching his performance and 
listening to the notes.

On the slide, bar your finger across the first four strings and hold it so you catch the next note on
the fourth string that comes along. The only real chord shape in here is a C, but it's very brief, 
comes and goes, so I didn't note it. Watch the Farm Aid concert for the chord shapes and changes.

The other playing tip is that the bass/rhythm line is on strings 4, 5 and 6 strings as you'd expect, 
and they are all standard quarter notes. Use these to help keep time. When I was figuring out this 
tab I worked out the bass line first, then the rest of it. Might help you to do the same to learn it.
