notes on this recording

This is a transcription on the version of Caravan found on their

first LP, "Walk Don't Run." It varries in many ways from the live in

Japan '65 version, namely:

#1 It has a tonality of B, the live version has a tonality of E

#2 It features slower, less agressive playing tahn Japan '65

#3 It features an intro and a clossing section that is not on Japan '65

#4 It fetures a lower octave melody section

The song arangement:

the intro guitar lines are double stops using parralell 4ths

the main theme is played twice

theme #2 is played once

then the main theme is repeated with a varriation at the end of each bar

after a four note low octave run the main theme is played an octave lower

with varriations

and finally there is an outro, which is a varraition in the intro

tab ledgend

\=slide

h=hammer on

p=pull off

b=bend 1/2 step

B=bend full step
