Kingfisher Tab

   
Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Artist: Bert Jansch
Track title: Kingfisher
Album: Live at the 12 Bar (and Avocet)
Tuning: EADGBE

This excellent instrumental was first recorded on "Avocet" and featured a 
beautiful violin part; I tabbed it though from the live version which is 
just guitar. The two are musically the same. It was hard to tell exactly 
what he plays in some parts as he plays somewhat vaguely;  you should get 
the general idea though. I didn't notate the string slaps he uses for 
rhythmic percussion - they should come naturally if you're familiar with the 
piece. The tab is divided into section A, which is repeated, and section B, 
which is not. There are many fingering alternatives you could use in places. 
There are a couple of natural harmonics which I've bracketed. Watch for 
the occasional bar of 6/4; the asterisks are a guide and show roughly where 
the beats lie. My advice would be to get the general idea of this tune and 
just go with the flow without attempting a carbon copy of what Bert plays! 
Hope you enjoy it :o)
