    Default Sleepwalk

    Not sure who the original composer is (Richie Valenz?), but does anyone have the tabs as well as chord progression for the song "sleepwalk"?

    It was originally recorded by Johnny & Santo and I know it was also covered by Larry Carlton and Joe Satriani. No Uke tabs, but guitar tabs are available. Maybe someone can transpose?

    I've been meaning to ask for tabs for this but never got around to it. I can't do anything with the guitar tabs, so I'll wait and see what else gets posted.

    Yeah - I've been meaning to ask for this tab as well. Just never got around to it seein' how I've been busy with so many other songs that I haven't gotten down yet.

    Liz Safley Brinker did a beautiful version and it's clear where her fingers are going in this video.

    She plays it in F - nice voicings.
    Here's a basic chord chart in C:

    The magic of this song is the long slides. You can use regular finger slides, but this is a clever way to it. The original recording of this song used an Hawaiian slide steel guitar.
