    Question YMSB: Dancing in the Moonlight

    Has anybody worked out the tab for the Yonder Mountain String Band's cover of Dancing in the Moonlight - it just knocked me out first time I heard it and I would really like to learn how to play the mando (maybe octave mando?) part:

    I figured it out a few months back, but I never wrote it out. If nobody else chimes in, I can try to relearn it. Is there an easy tab-making website? I haven't done it in years.

    Here are chord names and voicings. The notes in between are just arpeggios. I've recorded a video at normal and slow speed, and with youtube, you can even slow it down further. Here's the intro:

    4 4 x x x 3 6



    Then the verse and chorus:

    "We get it

    (Em)
    almost every night

    (A)
    when that

    (D)
    moon gets

    (A)
    big and

    (Bm)
    bright
