Imperfect Tab (detail)
« on: July 09, 2016, 07:04:42 pm »
Decided to go full on with a transcription attempt.  It is my favorite tune on Justin's Small Town Eyes CD. 

Used the album version and Amazing SlowDowner (to pitch it up a half step to standard) as well as watching the live version (https://youtu.be/Cj5IOk4UpHo) to check and verify I was at least close.  But you are gonna have to listen to and play along with the tune.

As with all tabs from the internet, if there is something you hear differently I probably got it wrong.  Trust your ears, not mine.

Note that the tune is a LOT looser that written... I tend to write more notes on some the the 'incidental' 16th note strums I heard.

Quite often after the riffs in the verses the first chord back is kinda 'splangy', not notated.  Go take a listen. 

Lessee, in the second chorus I hear some movement in the middle of the Bm bar - sounds like a sus4 but I can't quite nail it to my satisfaction.

The 6ths riffs in the chorus are pretty quick and its a bit difficult to keep things muted, makes me suspect I might be missing something.  But if you can get it clean it sounds very close to me.

Haven't worked out the harmonic bits on guitar yet (next task), but Tourney posted a harmonica transcription here, https://justinguitarcommunity.com/index.php?topic=19720.msg138096#msg138096, I intend to try to use these to help me check my transcription but as I don't play harmonica, those numbers are a bit of a mystery to me.

Dude, well done! I'll have to revise it myself, been years since I played it but it looks pretty right!

Thanks!  The honor was mine.  Glad I didn't butcher it.
