    Anybody have the tab for this one?



    there are some bends I cant pick up specifically....such as :45 mark..

    Is that just a E string B string bend at the 5th...or is there a third string involved??

    I believe he is working on the third and first strings there. He uses that formation several times. Fantastic playing. If that is the only part of his version of that song that is giving you problems, I congratulate you. I will have to take exception to his calling that a Ray Charles song. It was written by Don Gibson.
    Listening to the song, I can see my dear mother hanging clothes on the line on a summer day singing that song as well as anyone I have ever heard sing it.

    No, there are plenty of bends....that need some collaboration ...
    But I think I've got it up to that point...
    Later on, when he does some free whellin', I will have to do some on my own..
    But the bones of the tune are well done....
    Wouldnt mind a progressive discection on this thread...

    Wow, that's incredible. So, so pretty. I've watched some of his instructional videos and enjoyed those as well. He's a tremendous player .

    ok...how about the three bends at :46 47 48 second mark?
    first one is 10 fret B and 9 fret G bent up half...
    then I'm not sure....

    ------10-----------9-------------8--------
    -------------------------------------------
    ---9(11)------10(11)--pb(10)r(9)------
    -------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------

    I'm not sure how to tab this but on the third string I hear a whole step bend (9 to 11) followed by a half step bend (10 to 11) followed by a half step pre-bend (10) released back (to the 9)... against the descending line on the E string.

    ---------------------------10(11)-10----------9---------

    -------------------------------------------

    that is a split bend, then release ....third bend 3rd string down 4th string bent up

    From looking at the video, Arlen is doing more fingering than your tab suggest....here is my guess..

    I hear three notes at the start of that lick :

    ------10--------------------------------
    ------10--------------------------------
    ---9(11)--------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------------

    I don't have it all worked out yet, but I can hear a D descending chromatically down to B on the first string (10th fret down to 7th fret).

    This is probably my favorite tune of his, although I think he plays a few too many notes at times.
