BANISH MISFORTUNE (Richard Thompson, Strict Tempo 1982)
transcribed by Elaine Jennings

I've divided this up into sections to make it a little easier to follow. This is the
tune, but Thompson doesn't stick rigidly to it, so feel free to mess around and elaborate
it. The bars in the first section are a bit messy, but they stick reasonably well to the 
in the song.

Any mistakes/suggestions etc, email black_jack_davy@hotmail.com

After this it's just variations on these themes. Just one other little bit that I felt 
noteworthy:
