    Default James Hill's Assam / Like a Bird, revisited with TAB

    I recorded this medley right after James' CD came out and also tabbed Like a Bird. Assam was too funky for me to tab. Maybe someday.

    Well, I sent the TAB to James and asked if I could share it and he said yes. I will put a post in the TABS forum but here is a video I just made to accompany it.

    I arranged it a little differently than the original so don't freak out. You can play it how you like. I am also playing in standard tuning GCEA. James recorded it and plays it a full step higher which gives it a beautiful ring. I just don't like to retune my instruments (lazy).



    And the TAB can be found here.

    very nice work! it amazes everyday how many different sounds we can get from the same instrument... even with all of jame's different styles, he has a unique sound that comes from each.
    great video, look forward to seeing more of your work!
