Track title: Blackwaterside

Tuning: DADGBE (dropped D)
Capo: 5th Fret

Amazing tune but a real pain to transcribe! There are bars of 2,3,4,5 and 6; the
asterisks let you know how many beats. You will have to work closely with the record to
capture the fine nuances of the rhythm and structure. There are also slight variations
from verse to verse and in the instrumental. Some of the fingering can be changed to suit
you; most of them I arrived at for reasons of tone. I think mine is a little different to
the Stefan Grossman transcription, though I stick by it - it sounds really authentic
especially when you sing along. Good luck and have fun!
