    Default Land's End. Tim O'Brien cover with free notation

    Hey yall! This Tim O'Brien tune is one of my favorites. In the process of working on this one, I notated out the standard dots for it. On "Hard Year Blues" Tim plays the B and C parts up an octave from "Fiddler's Green". The version I'm playing uses The A and the B part from "Hard Year Blues" and the C part from "Fiddler's Green". I hope you enjoy the music and get something out of the notation.

    John's a pro. Got to pick with him a little at the Bywater before it closed. He's a fine fiddler as well.

    Great tune, well played. I enjoyed that, thanks.
    Thanks for the notation, reminds me I’ve been enjoying writing things out by hand recently.

    Here’s the TAB from thesession:

    Been playing this tune for years. I guess I always thought Tim O' wrote it. Wrong!

    But from listening to the more traditional playing of it(more like a jig?), it sounds like two completely different tunes.

    Love the 3/4 timing Tim O' gives it. It reminds me of being on the water.

    PS:Tim O'Brien can take a great melody and make it truly his own. Like using "Joy of My Life" as inspiration for "Rod McNeil".
