Subject: Dan McKinnon Stan Rogers Tablature

Can anyone help me with finding the Tablature - not just the basic chords - or point me in the right direction for the songs listed below as I've searched the net up and down, even talked to Dan McKinnon face to face but have been unsuccessful in tracking down the actual tablature for any of them.

I am guitar player who wants to progress from my present level which is basically playing songs with a simple ripple all the way through, ie, Bass 321; Bass 132, Bass 23243 etc I have also got comfortable with a basic Travis pick, but still, playing the same pick all the way through the song, without deviation and I want to improve on this.

So, in order to try and improve my guitar play I have been searching the net and music book stores for the TAB of songs that I like. The only trouble is that virtually the only TAB I can find are for people like Simon and Garfunkel and James Taylor which, although good, are not my cup of tea.

Does anyone out there know where I can get the Tab for any of the following songs:-

Dan McKinnon

Remember Me
Sailmaker
Many Miles To Go
Fields of Dreams & Glory
My Old Walking Shoes
The Man of Her Dreams
Lovers of our Time


Stan Rogers

Lock Keeper
Make and Break Harbour
The Last Watch

Also

Safe In The Harbour – Eric Bogle, about Stan Rogers

Gordon Bok - Boat of Silver



Any help appreciated.

There is the Stan Rogers song book but only Make and Break harbor is included of the 3 titles you mention and its not tabs , its proper notes !

But well worth possessing

Yeah, thanks, breezy, I actually exchanged E mails with Ariel Rogers asking about the song book, Fogart's Cove, and she scanned me a sample sheet, which, apart from a brief clue as to the main pick - a couple of chords worth - just has the basic chords and the musical notation as you say. Good if your a piano player or any other player, apart from a guitar player.

I just thought that there must be some Catters out there that like these guys songs, play their music and actually write the Tab down. It seems that most guitar players, including the Pro's, just don't write it down, almost make it up as they go along.

Great when you can do it, but not when your trying to improve, learn.

I almost wish I'd taken up the concertina!

Its not a case of 'making it up as u go along' its listening carefully and trying to reproduce it in whole or part , bit by bit and if you get stuck, asking around .

Sometimes we walk before we run ;-) Good luck

I just learn 'em from the recordings, by careful listening and re-listening, and working it out. I don't try to do a slavish, absolutely perfect copy of what I hear, I use the recording as a basis for my own adaptation, which takes into account my own abilities and limitations - sometimes I'm very close, other times different. I'm a believer in the adage "Go your own way".

Tablature and standard Musical Notation make no sense to me whatsoever.

Thanks for your comments and advice, breezy, Backwoodsman, I was just hoping that of all the guitar playing Catters out there, someone would have the Tab to at least one of those songs or at least where I could buy a book, but it would appear not.

I do already try and listen and pick out the guitar picks myself but I am not the most experimental of people, I'm more regimented and I find it hard going, sometimes, nae most times, impossible to pick out what I'm listening to, hence the question.

I just find it odd that there are a lot of fantastic folk songs out there, some of them folk classics and no one has bothered to write down the Tab.

Thanks anyway guys, happy playing.

Chalkie

Aren't most of Stan's songs played with two guitars, A bass and other instruments?

Do you have a 12 string? That's what he played his bits on. I think he also played in DADGAD tuning. Best bet, get the chords, make your own arrangement, taking the bits that you like best from each instrument.

Here is a video with Stan in Concert. There isn't a guitarist on earth who can play Stan's and Garnet's parts at once.

Stan did play a 12-er on some songs, others a 6-er. He used DADGAD sometimes, other times he'd use DADGBE (think 'The Jeannie C) or EADGBE (e.g. 'The Field Behind The Plow"). He wasn't tied to a particular instrument or tuning.

Stan did mostly play with the band (Garnet, Paul Mills, David Woodhead, Grit Laskin et al), but played solo gigs too - I have a private recording that was given to me of his appearance solo at The Bermuda Folk-Club, including his brilliant slap-down of some gobby heckler. Magnificent performance, and some magnificent singing back from the audience too.

For Stan's songs I try to use a similar pick to the one that sounds like the 'main' thread in the accompaniment - it's usually pretty easy to hear, not always easy to play.

Yeah. I've never seen the tab for the solo gigs. The sheet music i had as chalkie says looked like a piano arrangement.
