Kookie Khords...

A place to post guitar tabs separately from other discussion so it doesn’t get lost in the messages. To make it easy to search we suggest starting a new thread for each song posted and include the song name in your title. We’ll be able to make a nice archive if we keep tab here and discussion on the other forums.

Thanks BF, I just looked him up on Amazon- looks interesting and up my alley. 'Shooty-bang genre' and 'reasonable degree of literacy and credibility' certainly get the thumbs up from me.

I've been reading a Carl Hiassen novel which is entertaining (a bit Elmore Leonard)but not a patch on the John D. Macdonald Travis McGee series which it's similar to. I never realised what a phenomenon the McGee books were in their day until I did some research on the net. I love the pulps!

I might try and start a reading thread on the way off topic now....

if you use the above shape in G tuning BUT move it all by one string towards your feet, and then move it all up to the fifth fret you have the beautiful first chord in Poor Bob's "Terraplane Blues"

So it should now look like;

5th fret,1st string, 1st finger.
6th fret, 2nd string, 2nd finger.
7th fret, 3rd string, 3rd finger.
open , 5th string.
