Subject: TAB: 'Go Down Moses' by Martin Simpson


An old American gospel tune from 'A Closer Walk With Thee', where Simpson
segues into this from 'O Jerusalem' (which I have also transcribed -
should be available at OLGA, otherwise feel free to mail me and I'll let
you have a copy). They do make a nice pairing.

It's a fairly straightforward piece, but take care not to let any open
strings other than the Ds ring during the slides in measures 5, 9 and 17.
