Per a request, I am reposting this tab of....
"Cadence and Cascade"
King Crimson, from the 1970 album In The Wake of Poseidon
Written by Robert Fripp and Peter Sinfeld (lyrics)
(NOTE: This is not from any book, magazine, whatever, so it's not a
professional transcription, per se. Still, this sounds pretty good. Please
E-Mail any comments to
(YET ANOTHER NOTE: there really is no need for a transcription key; this is a
simple accoustic song with no taps, slides, etc. Of course you may add what
you like to enhance the song).

awhile, I finally had to do it myself]
