Bill Frisell playing "Sitting On Top Of The World"

Bill Frisell is an amazing player of blues. One moment he has a "delta" moment, followed by a beautiful jazz, followed by a broken clock blues sound followed by real blues again; whatever that may be. After his two chorus solo intro the band takes off and it's all out country blues.

I transcribed the first chorus in tab and will put it in computer tab, as cheezy as that tab is, it's all I got =P

I just have a phone, no computer, if someone was kind enough to go to youtube
Go to Bill Frisell Sitting On Top Of The World and post it here on this thread. I won't see a computer for a while and may forget when I do.
That would really help people reading the tab.
Enjoy
