Okay, I've been listening to the Sam Bush version of "8 More Miles to Louisville" (in G). I've slopped a little solo together, but I've reached a stand still and would like a few more embellishments. Does anyone have it tabbed out or their own version that they can send me? Any tips would be appreciated and put to good use!

There is a version of this tune on Co-Mando by Jimmy Gaudreau under the Tabedit files. It might help you out some.

I think there is an age old saying about not trying to squeeze blood from a sausage

And there is indeed "Blood Sausage" . THough I have not tried it. One of the things about 8 More Miles is to time the pauses. Luck.. R/

Just heard it last night on a re-run of Hee-Haw and it seems so easy that trying to learn it by ear shouldn`t be very hard at all, Grand Pa Jones didn`t play any thing complicated, did he?

Sam Bush does a very particular solo in his version, and that's what I've transcribed above, not the Grandpa Jones version.

But you didn't put the changes in!

That's what that stuff in the space between your ears is for :)

You know he did Willie. That pup changes chords every beat. Sorta like Arkansas Traveler, or Black Hairy Possum (blackberry blossum).

I like 8 More Miles, just as good or better'n any of the aforementioned. If a fellar can cross-pick to sorta imitate a finger picked guitar, that might be the treatment.

One of the last decade posts mentioned the Gaudreau version. Niles' book of Gaudreau solos listed this one, including the dim lick he ends it with. Very nice, indeed.

David, if that's the Bush version, what's this (http://www.mandozine.com/music/search_results.php?searchfor=eight+more+miles&tuneselectby=C&mandolevel=&category=&songkey=&artist=&transcriber=&sortby=T&sortorder=A&submit=) version?

I can't make your version sound like the song at all. Am I missing something?

Pete the version David posted sounds pretty much like the sam bush version to my ears whereas the tabledit one is quite different imo.

its a cool song alright. :)

The version on Mandozine is by Jimmy Gaudreau from his "The Gaudreau Mandolin Album"
