Hi folks
Here's a flatpicking arrangement that I transcribed from a cassette I recorded at a June 1994 Norman Blake guitar workshop. It's a fiddle tune called "The Constitution March." Capo at the second or third fret and play it with with a loose right hand, not too fast. This one's fairly typical of a lot of the stuff Norman plays these days - a very "tuneful" piece with a certain amount of melodic and harmonic "unexpectedness."
* * is a repeat symbol. Each | above the staff marks the passage of one (4/4) beat.
The chords -0- like in measure 17, etc., are strummed. -1- -0- -2-
