hi Mal

best way i've found to tab things out is to use scales then a circle of fifths.

on your 3 string work out the scale postions for the major scale, and then the minor and major pentatonic scales.

then play the scales over the you tube clip, until you find a scale that fits (all the notes, sometimes you will get some that are just a note off)

then apply the scale to the circle of fifths.  i.e. if the scale is c major, then the C chord will be the I chord G will be the IV chord etc etc

should be easy after that

 

otherwise i'll have a go after the long weekend

 

Cheers

 

Cliff

 

Hi thanks for your reply but as a 71 year beginner I'm afraidb that just looses me plus I am no musican and would really be great ful if you could do a tab for me.Mal (Hull)

Cheers mate would really apreciate it Mal

Mal,
If you are refering to "Can't be Satisfie" Not sure why you want a tab. He has an excellent instructional video. My favorite to play on a 3 stringer. Biggest challenge is the syncopated picking of the G and g strings , and the hammer-ons
