This Bob Dylan classic is a favourite of mine for warming up. It has a nice lilt to it and doesn’t require a great vocal range to sing it, when your voice isn’t necessarily ready if it hasn’t yet warmed up.
I tabbed this to the version done at Columbia Records’ 30th Anniversary Tribute to Bob Dylan, as performed by Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin-Carpenter and Rosanne Cash. You can get a 30 second sample of it here. Unfortunately, the Bob Dylan empire seemed to have exercised its rights over the wimpier by the day crumbling YouTube empire and those videos have been removed for copyright purposes. The closest performance I can find to the one I tabbed is by the Byrds in the video below. However, you’ll be able tell soon enough there are some subtle differences. Good thing I tabbed notes with my chords. Just pic out the notes and you’ll get the version I had in mind.
Man, I need to set up my recording mics soon so I can just record the tabs for users to hear rather than rely on “similar” versions!
These tabs all fit on one page to avoid the inconvenience of page turns. However, the letter size tabs (8.5″ x 11″) may be too small for your eyes. If so, you can either enlarge to tabloid size (11″ x 17″) using an automatic enlarge feature on many photocopiers, or download the tabloid sized versions for printing. The tabloid size tabs can be inserted into a typical letter sized binder on the 11″ size, and folded almost in half to fit. You just open each tab to use it.
