NOTES:
* = Octave Chords (12th fret = Nut).
1. Do warm-up your fingers and the strings before trying these chords, as the positions
the tempo, are very demanding.
2. My next step, ...is to get a mandolin to learn and try this tune upon. I'm sure that
will result in a different interpretation.
3. When I'm duly inspired I'll follow-up with the 'finger picking' notation.
4. As there is a dearth of information about this tune, I'd appreciate your comments and
corrections.

I've been trying this tune on a ukulele in the key of C. It works. And its not quite as complicated as a mandolin
