Tune your 1 string anyway you want.
Mine is tuned to a G note when open.
This tab will work for the basics on ANY
open tuning including 2,3, 4, 5 and 6 strings.

0 is open. The numbers correspond to the fret
or where the fret would be. My diddley 'frets'
are marked at 3, 5, 7 and 12.


My girl, my girl,
7 0 0 7

Don't lie to me.
7 5 0 3


Tell me where
3 3 7

Did you sleep last night.
0 0 3 2 0

that is the basics. The song continues
much the same, but with an extra note
added where there are extra syllables.

In the pines in the pines.
7 7 0 0 0 7

Where the sun don't shine.
7 0 5 0 3

I shi-ver the whole night long.
3 7 7 0 3 2 0

Clarky, thanks.   Steve, thanks and a laugh.   I might try a couple more diddley tabs.  If they get in the right hands, they can help some folks get started.
