The Tee Tot Song   by Hank Williams Jr.

tabbed by Dave Hancock


We wanted it.  We were patient.  I got impatient.  I gave it a go.
I hope you all like it.  Its not perfect, but its as close as I 
could get.

Alternating bass, alternating bass, alternating bass... Ingrain it
into your brain.

Tuning : Open D - (low to high) D A D F# A D
Capo 1 : To play with the recording.  When I tabbed it my guitar was down a half step
and I said capo 2.  Thanks to Larry for pointing that out.


I chose to tune down to Open D instead of tuning up to Open E because
I like my guitar and I want to keep it.  Too much tension is bad for
a guitar, especially acoustics.

To tune to Open D, start out in standard tuning (EADGBe).  Then tune
your E (bass E) string down to match your D string.  It will sound
the same but an octave lower(?).  Then tune your e (high e) string
down to match the D string, but it will sound an octave higher.  Then
tune your B string down to match the A string, again the pitch of the
detuned string will be an octave (or 2) higher than the bass A string.
Now tune the G string down to match the 4th fret of the D string (the
original D - 3rd down from bass E).  Shown below are the steps you
take to re-tune in graphic form.  The two notes shown in each step
are the notes you are matching.  Each step shows the note the strings
are tuned at during the step.

    1     2     3      4
 E|----D|-0--D|-----D|----|
 B|----B|----A|-0---A|----|
 G|----G|----G|----F#|-0--|
 D|-0--D|-0--D|-----D|-4--|
 A|----A|----A|-0---A|----|
 D|-0--D|----D|-----D|----|


All notes are relative to the capo.

ls = long slide  p = pulloff  b = bend   h = hammer on

This one is definitely not easy to play.  I'm not up to tempo myself, so don't worry.

Dave... you definantly get a 10 for effort,
and it sounds pretty accurate as well! Great job!

Holy @$$% THANKS FOR GIVING THIS A STAB.
I thought I'd never find this tab.
Now, I gotta get my slow-poke fingers
and brain to work to learn it.
-dinosaur | 3/12/2003
What can I say? I thought I'd never find this tab. Great job man, this is a killer tab.Thanks

dude your awesome i couldnt find this
anywhere thanks

This song is played in opn E tuning without a capo. Watch Hank Jr play it on youtube. He strums the open strings repeatedly while talking to the audience and it is definitely ope E, and no capo.
-Jtbaer | 11/15/2013
jtbaer : If you read my comments above the tab, I explain that I tuned down to Open D instead of up to Open E so that there was less tension on my guitar strings. The capo was to bring it to pitch with the recording I was using (which was in Open E). Thanks, Dave.
