Epistle to Derroll, by Donovan

from carlg@pinc.com (Carl Gigun)
------------------

I found this album, RFor Little OnesS, in a box of old
forgotten records my parents bought before I was born.
This is my MomUs favourite song from the album, but the
whole thing is full of songs for single acoustic guitar
and voice. (a few have parts for friends with flutes
or harmonicas too.) All the songs are pretty easy to
play and are in the same Rpoetic hippieS style as this one.
This is the only one IUve tabbed, but if anyone asks
IUll gladly tab the rest.


Musically, this song is pretty simple. ItUs in E major,
4/4 timing, and uses only three chords. (E,A,C# minor)
The same bass strum/alternating thumb pattern is used
throughout. Count it as 1 2 3&4&. The only change in the
pattern comes in measures 2 and 3 of part 2. In measure two
the second thumb strike is a hammer-on, so youUll have to
count it as 1 2 3&&4&, and measure three has no eighth
notes at all.
Enough of me rambling hereUs the two main parts:


PART 1

  ^ ` ^ ` ^ ` ^ `  ^ ` ^ ` ^ ` ^ `



Donovan plays part 1 without the A chord, just four
measures of E, as an intro and then in between every verse.
Each verse is four lines long, using part 1 for the first
three lines and part 2 for the last one.

ThatUs it. Enjoy!
