Doc Watson - Walk On Boy Live tab

Artists:Doc and Richard Watson
Album: Three Pickers (Live)

Tabbed by: Marcus Ryan Jan.2nd 2006
I'm not much into bluegrass but this one is great. Everything but the solos was taken
from a tab by Pancake (whereabouts unknown). On the live album they play with capos on
the 2nd fret, and the chords are available on the internet. There are a few other short
riffers thrown in the song, but they can be figured out if you can learn these runs.
