    I was hoping someone would know where to find a transcription of Joe Dalton's version of Panhandle rag.

    I't featured on an old VHS Instruction tape from Hot Licks: Country Jazz Guitar. Don't know if it's available on CD. I had the tape for a while and Joe's playing on this tune blew my mind. He doesn't really go thru the tune note by note, but explains alot of the chords and bends he uses. The best western swing steel guitar sound I've heard on a tele. Alot of super stretched 4 and 5 fret close-voiced 6th chords with bends using the index finger. Can't remember if it came with tab... I lost it. It's a really old tape now. He explains his equipment at the end: tele, twin reverbs, compressor, delay.
    Joe's a great player and good teacher. There's alot of more recent stuff on YouTube, but PanHandle Rag is the best IMHO.
    Swang on,

    aint it great, i didn't buy that vas tape for years, as it looked so dodgy looking at the photos, but i eventually got it cheap and couldn't believe this guys playing, outstanding stuff!! As usual, the instructional videos by less famous guys are the BEST ones.....

    The first step is finding a Bass player who can play the whole run....
    then the 2 years of daily practice of nailing the guitar parts



    easy...

    Thanks for the info. I will see if I can track down the tape. I wasn't sure if it had a transcription on it, but it sounds like it can be figured out with some work.
    Cheers

    I don't think the tef. convert

    Better off downloading the demo version of Tabedit and just use that

    I went with the demo version and was able to get what I needed. Looks like we're in business.

    Thanks 62 Jazzmaster. That looks like a cool page. Alot of good tunes and tabs there. My computer won't open those tef. files. Where are you guys finding the "demo version ot Tabedit"?:confused:

    TablEdit download page
    They want you to buy TablEdit, so the trial version is limited in what it can do.

    GretschTelecaster my user name on youtube that someone has hacked almost two years ago so unfortunately became unavailable to me ...... very difficult to play guitar in a way as Joe, especially in live situations ..... my recommendation is to buy a lap steel guitar and learn to play the Panhandle Rag because it's much easier and the band will get a slightly different sound ...... something like this ....
