(This is a complete corrective patch to previous Dean's post).

Well, hi everybody.
I'm 30 years old and live in south France (Toulouse).
I'm not a music student.I've started the piano at 8 and folk guitar for 7 years
ago.
I've bought one day John Renbourn's "The hermit"'s vinyl album and decided to
search for
"the hermit" tab. Unfortunatly,I've found just one, created by Dean Gaudet in
1995 at OLGA
(thanks Dean for your work).I know the tab is on the "Stephan Grossman's
British Finger picking
guitar" book.I tried to buy it but the deal could not be done.If someone got it
the tab is welcomed.
So, I took a sheet and a pen and began to transcribe the song enterly
(previously recorded on CD for the sound) and -don't laught- it took me 3 weeks
and 2 months to play it 'correctly' I think. I know there are mistakes and
little minor missing.
And the tempo here is completly subjective.I really tried to get the good
similar 'sound' and after
the good finger positions for an easy playing).(John played it on a Guild- me
on a Martin).

John Renbourn is essentially a miniaturist.
Wether he takes his inspiration from the Delta Blues or from th Fitzwilliam
Virginal Book,
everything is crystallized into a microcosm as charming as a snowstorm in a
paperweight.
Renbourn is a model of equanimity who looks like to avoid manifesting any kind
of emotion.
His cultural involvement is just one reason for thinking that he might have
lived
in the 16th century.Instead is use of volume and is guitar work provided an
etymological meaning
to the term "folk-blues" in the mid-sixties, and gave some purpose to the young
folk club
guitarists whose tender roots had not penetrated down as far as Broonzy, Blind
Boy Fuller
or Blind Lemon Jefferson.

"The Hermit" is the song type that most of the guitarists would want to play
one day.
It is an extremely challenging peace (for beginers) with the added benefit that
it is a beautiful piece of music. It's not just flashy style for the sake of
flash.
And it is why i've spent so much time to transcribe it.
You must listen to the song before trying to play it, because it is a sort
of 'versatile playing'.

MAIL ME if you want to download the mp3 file, or if you have a patch to add to
my tab,
or anything else to say.
