I would like to have the tab for the song "Walk Out Backwards" by Bill Anderson. I'm best playing & singing in key of A, D on mandolin. I do have TablEdit, but I don't use it much, so never get good at putting in a full tab. I use it mostly to transpose or isolate sections.
I've always had such great help from members when I put in a request for tab. I've tried to attached the file. But it is from my I-Tunes library & I believe it is an .m4a format. No it won't - sorry! I don't know if I can convert to MP3 or not.

Judy instead of a tab here is the structure of the melody. The song is recorded in the key of E which must have been best for Bill's vocal. Start by playing 12345678 on the fingerboard chart which should sound like do re mi etc. then start a line at a time trying to make the numbers sound like the song. This method is how people write songs whether they know it by theory or just by ear.
