Doobie Brothers - Black Water tab

The Doobie Brothers - Black Water
(Mark Holmes)

Wow, this is a lot.  I never meant for this tab to get so huge,
but oh well.  Have fun with it.


This tab is in Double Drop-D tuning, DADGBD.

& = Rest

Play this 11 times... you'll figure it out. Play this until the chorus.

Play this three times. It's the chorus. Then play this part right here, its where he says "An' I ain't got no worries, 'cause I ain't in no hurry at all.

And now, the solo that took forever to tab. It's played on a fiddle, but this is the guitar tab. Enjoy! (Please note that Figure 1 is being played throughout the solo.)

Then both guitars play Figure 1 for the rest of the song, which isn't much. ------------------------------------------------------ Thanks! Please send any comments/suggestions to MarkA.Holmes@gmail.com www.redpandas.org www.cssresource.org -Mark Holmes
