Incredible String Band – October Song tab

Artist: Robin Williamson (Incredible String Band)
Album:  The Incredible String Band
Song:   October Song
tabber: felix (sirewatkins at hotm..)

I really love this hauntingly beautiful song, full of the wander-lust that 
powers much of robin's work.

My dad gave me a tattered old book of incrediable string band tab (no longer 
in print) which contained this song. In a recent move I lost the remains of
that book, so before forget it - here it is...

This is just the intro which is all I ever learned, but it makes a great
tune/improv base on its own.

You basically play clawhammer in open D tuning and play around on 
the top d string.

Try a 12th fret harmonic on the top three strings to finish. Enjoy!
