Description:

Here's how I play Arirang. I've been looking for a tab of this song for months.
After a while I came to the realization that there isn't an online tab of this beautiful melody.
What an oversight! I decided to do a version as a payment for all the tabs I have enjoyed.
I transcribed this song by ear from a number of sources. This is a very simple version.
It isn't perfect.
I've been adding more notes/arpeggios to spice it up a bit lately.
Your encourage you to play it, fix it, alter it, transcribe it for the banjo, or preform 
it on the Grammys.
I hope you have fun with this song... that's all I care about.

I worked really hard at learning this song, so I'd genuinely appreciate your comments. Enjoy!

There's no timing w/ this tab. Just listen for the rhythm. Play it slow and w/ feeling.
