    It would be nice if you could publish tabs with the audio files, especially for the melody! Even though this one is not terribly hard, it would be less frustrating if we didn’t have to listen to it a bunch to figure it out.

      Hi and thanks for writing.

      As you may or may not know, depending on how long you’ve been visiting Guitar Noise, we are in the process of negotiating for use of the copyrighted songs. This means tablature, believe it or not, even if it’s our own arrangement of any particular song. That’s the law, pure and simple, and we’re doing our best to work with both the songwriters and publishers to hopefully bring the lessons back. That’s why we can’t.

      But I should point out that you can easily purchase the sheet music for this single song, and there are, also, a lot of books out there that have it as part of a set of songs. Depending on where you live, you might even be able to get a copy at your local library. Or they might be able to get it for you.

      In the meantime, though, we’re still working on it. And as soon as we succeed you can be assured it will go right back up online. Hopefully that will be in the reasonably near future.

      Looking forward to chatting with you again.
