This vintage song was 1st put out by The Louvin Brothers in 1958, written by Hazel Houser. There are some good mandolin parts in the song & it keeps playing in my head as a "duet", using twin mandolin or double stops. I am such an amateur player, but I can just hear the harmony in this song "in my head".
The version I currently have is by Rodney Crowell & Emmylou Harris. I do have TablEdit, but haven't used it very much but can certainly print it or edit it some.
I would love to have the tab for this song along with the harmony part for it. I need to work on double stop harmony so that would be excellent.
I could then print the 2 parts to have it for another player. I have 2 mandolins with the hopes to someday run across someone who wants to learn mando or jam with me on such things.
I live in a tiny town of 800 people in Indiana, have not yet found anyone who plays music to jam with.
Have you had any luck finding/developing the tab?
Also, what key were you thinking? Looks like the original was in C.
@TSSN - No luck so far. G or A would be good. Easier in A since fiddle is easiest for me in A & same as my mandolin. However, I sing a lot of songs (only to myself LOL) in G using guitar. I can transpose it no matter what key you put it in with TablEdit. Since it seems to be in C on the original, it would probably be easiest (per entry by ear) to enter.
I would try it, but I'm not really good with TablEdit as yet.
Thank you for your response...really appreciated.
I put it in the tab library, changed key from E to A to get it to lay out better on the mando.

Looks like mmuussiiccaall fixed you up! Faster and better than I would have accomplished. Tab looks good too.
Thank you so much! It looks great! I am trying to get a print up of it, but when I do it is 2 pages of real tiny format.....working on all those issues in TablEdit. I will get that part figured out.
Here's the melody
Why is it when I pull this up in the tab library, then request a TablEdit version it shows like this in print preview & in the actual printing?
If I request a PDF version, it shows correctly & prints correctly. However, I can't get the other instruments to show up except in TablEdit on screen, but the tiny print version when trying to print the different instruments screens in print preview.
Thank you, I know I have a lot to learn about TablEdit. But if I could speak to someone one on one, it would help me with a lot of issues with these problems.
I went to the TablEdit website, signed into Groups, but can't as yet find any help with this. I have previously downloaded tab from Mando Hangout, Banjo Hangout and Flatpickers Hangout. I don't recall ever having this problem before. The only way it prints 1 page is if I do a PDF download instead of Tef. I feel it is a setting or maybe I have a different version than the one it was input with in TablEdit. I would like to be able to print each separate instrument on one page each. With the Tef format I can edit, just the printing is a problem. THE TAB ITSELF IS WONDERFUL & SOUNDS PERFECT.
So thanks for your suggestion...I did look at that, but can't figure out yet what the problem is.
Here's my Tabledit preference panes that control printing, hope this helps you.
