Tablature availability

Hi, I`m new to Cigar Box Nation, and pretty new to playing bottleneck. I`m working my way through Keni Lee Burgess tuition CD`s, and whilst I know that he tries to provide the knowledge & understanding to enable me to listen to songs and "work out" how its played, I still find it tough without tablature. ......... Is there anyone out there who provides tablature to order?

There are a number of songs I want to be able to play. .... "Black Angel Blues" and "It Hurts me too"…

Should have said: The guitars I play at the moment are an old Dean accoustic tuned to D, and a Dean resonator tuned to E.
