CBG Tabs

So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

Remember...

Tabs here is as a learning tool -- NOT for profit.

I'll also upload some blank tab sheets. Just let me know what you think and if I need to add anything.

Loan me a Dime, any one have the tabs for a Cigar Box version on how to play?

Cynthia,

I'll give you an answer, but let's also see how many other opinions you may get!

First of all, it should be "Gdg"--with a little d as well as g.

These notes are written for guitar as the G below middle C, the d immediately above middle C, and the g 3 steps above that.

However, guitar notes actually sound an octave lower than they are written, so your sounds will all be lower than they look when they're notated.

Like I said, some people may be tuning GDG in other octaves, so let's see what other replies you may get.

very dumb question: when it calls for GDg tuning, where is the big G and little g on the grand scale. How do I find it on my piano for tuning? obviously im total beginner.

Thanks Man, I remember listening to this sound on the radio many, many moons ago. I think Gene Autry sang it.
