Living In The Country
---------------------

Music By Pete Seeger
Arrangement by Leo Kottke
From live Kottke recording on both Capital "Best Of" releases

Tabbed by Rich Kucera and his trusty 1/2 speed Marantz

Thanks to fellow net.guitarist Andy Alexis for vital clues
There's also Pete Seeger's version printed in Mar94 Acoustic Guitar

Dropped-D Tuning

I find a 3-finger style(thumb "p", index "i", and middle "m")
to be more effective than using 4 fingers(not to mention 5).  
It makes the velocity and attack easier to achieve.  I also
recommend this approach for Busted Bicycle.  If nothing else
it takes me out of my four finger rut.  I would suggest you
also try fingerpicks.  I'll make right hand fingering indications 
that I think keep a regular momentum going(which includes picking
out a note here and there on the first and second strings with
the thumb). 

"X" == mute the note e.g. ---X7---
"h" == hammer
"p" == pull off to that note
"\b" or "/b" == bend down or up to note
"\" or "/" == slide down or up
