Jansch Bert – Twa Corbies tab

Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Artist: Bert Jansch
Track title: Twa Corbies
Album: Moonshine
Tuning: EADGBE

A really powerful tune when sung, this one. It's pretty straightforward and in 4/4 but
watch out for the occasional bar of 2/4. The asterisks are a guide. As usual work with
the recording to capture some of Berts fine nuances and variations (although there are
not many on this tune)

Rhythm: 4/4 with occasional 2/4
