Mr. Sandman

Give this a try-I found it soewhere and the begininng sounds good


This transcr i ption is based on Chet Atkins¹ arrangement as heard on: Chet 
Atkins- Guitar Legend- The RCA Years.  I have included the section in ³A²that 
he starts with and the section in ³D² that he ends with, leaving outthe ³C² 
section that he plays with piano accompaniment.   I am sure there are notes 
missing, but listen to the recording and you can fill in.  This is fun to play 
and a real crowd pleaser with the instantly recognized intro riff.  Thanks Chet.

Doesn't seem to be much like Chet plays on the TV video, although bits of it sound OK
