Hi all

I would be so grateful if anyone can help with this. I'm looking for an easy tab for You are my Sunshine in the key of C. It's very hard to find anything online, as this is a common beginner's song and all the links that come up are only for the chords, not the tab.

I have managed to find this tab in G, which is pretty much perfect in terms of difficulty level for me (although would be up for more challenging versions too!):

But I really need it to be in C and I don't know how to transpose tabs, only chords.

If you can help, please let me know.

Thanks so much!

Well, it's not quite what you need, but at least I found the melody line (and a harmony) tabbed out here in the key of C:

If you know the melody and the chords, then it isn't all that terribly difficult to figure out a way to play both at once. Give it a few tries. Hint: plant your ring finger on the bottom string, 3rd fret, to make the C chord while you play the opening notes on the middle strings. Might as well start now developing your ability to make up (or transpose) your own tab, because it's hard to find tab on the internet. As you've already discovered :)

bnolsen, as much as I admire the good doctor, I have not found any actual tablature on his site, only chords and lyrics. Am I missing something?
Thanks very much for this acmespaceship - I'm starting to see how this can come together now, still very much a beginner at incorporating fingerpicking melodies into songs but I'm learning :)
