Hi folks

Here's a flatpicking arrangement that I transcribed from a cassette I
recorded at a June 1994 Norman Blake guitar workshop. It's a fiddle tune
called "The Constitution March." Capo at the second or third fret and play
it with with a loose right hand, not too fast. This one's fairly typical of
a lot of the stuff Norman plays these days - a very "tuneful" piece with a
certain amount of melodic and harmonic "unexpectedness."

*
* is a repeat symbol. Each | above the staff marks the passage of one (4/4)
beat.

The chords -0- like in measure 17, etc., are strummed.
