Wow.
-sabragirl59 | 11/27/2002
Whew, blows my mind! Great tabbing!!!
-Priebe | 12/4/2002
geeez.... this is amazing
-feramou | 2/17/2003
Yeah, great tab (with sarcasm). Way to get this tab (note for note) from the tab in
the "Essential Techniques for Mandolin" video. Putting it on the website isn't so
bad but taking credit for the tab is a pretty low thing to do. Reeeal classy.
So, everyone, don't compliment this tab. Compliment Chris Thile for writing it and
including it in his video. The claim that this is an original transcr i ption is poppycock!
-GregF | 3/13/2003
Well, Mr. jeffandjosh, I wouldn't be calling everyone who was unaware
of the circumstances concerning this tab a moron when you were one
of those oh-so-stupid people complimenting it as you and all the
other tabbers on this site can read on the comment you made above. I
am twelve years old and I know better than to do that.

-sabragirl59 | 4/13/2003
haHAhahahaahaha

thats is absolutely hilarious....all of it...
especially getting told off (quite well)
by a 12 year old... go SabraGirl : )
and yes jacking the tab credit was lame...
but thanks for sharing anyways
-Gaud | 8/30/2003
you jackasses, i seriously doubt the guy who took the time to post this tab, regardless of the source, was out for fame and glory...he was just trying to help people play a song. that's all. help people play a song.
-squadboy | 2/20/2004
haha, go Sabragirl! jeffandjosh, you're pretty damn immature to be agreeing with someone who made the mistake of calling the tabber a fraud! coz ya know, he may NOT have copied Thile's video.. There ARE people out there who can do just as good tabbing, and get EVERYTHING correct, note for note. Believe me! It may be hard, but it aint effing impossible!! I mean sh*t, I'm almost 15, and I tabbed out a Bela Fleck song! (Jeez!)
-gothrock3rbabe | 6/27/2004
is anyone able to give me some notes for this song so I can work it up on banjo? I'm looking for the basic melody, thanks for any input, peter
-pickinpete | 2/21/2005
ya i been playing mandolin for a week and i tryed this and it is HARD HARD HARD HARD
-menotyou33 | 4/25/2005
At least he tabbed it out for us
-RLFishbreath | 6/2/2005
Nice tab... i was playing completely wrong.

-Thile734 | 8/19/2005
Its not nice to eat with food in your mouth damnit!
-elliment | 12/27/2005
Little late posting, but this tab was worked on for a year before I got the video. I just had to change 3 notes and add the slides adn stuff, but 99% of it is from my ear. Sorry to burst the bubble.
-Focusdude | 7/21/2008
that's what she said
-the_gazelle1 | 8/2/2008
OK....to TAB or not to TAB.....whatever!!! LOL
Like the banjo question above, I know that mandolin is the same strings as my fiddle, but it would be FANTASTIC if someone knew the notes for the fiddle (I am working with tabs but having trouble). Well, thanks! And take care!
