Hi all,

not really sure to whom to adress so I do a common request.

I try to figure out the folk stuff that Arlo Guthrie plays in his song
Alices Restaurant. At least the people of 40+ should know what I'm
talking about biggrin.gif
This is over and over again the same few bars on acoustic guitar.
Can anyone help?
I found something on TAB sites but it seems to do not match exactly
(or I'm too dump to play it right) sad.gif

Any hint?

That's a cool fingerpicking song.
I never heard it before, thanks for sharing!
I checked it on Youtube and tried to transcribe it rapidly.
I's not exactly that, but think it's close enough. He does use a capo on the 2nd fret...
Play the bass with your thumb...

This is the repetitive verse part:

Here's the Guitar Pro file for that too:

Thanks a lot David for your quick help!

I'll try if I can make it work.

If you didn't know the song I suppose you don't know the movie
"alices Restaurant" either where Arlo Guthrie plays himself joining
a hippie group in the sixties. It's alot of fun biggrin.gif - don't miss it if you
have the chance to watch it.

Thanks again
Roland
David Wallimann
I'll check it out!
Thanks!

I fixed that in the previous thread. Sorry!

I listened to piece and I think David is pretty much right.
