Zak, excellent as always. I didn't actually get around to this song last week (fell in love with "Going to Alabama") but I think I'll work it out today.

Just by the way I figured out "It Won't Be Long" pretty well too, it's open A at the first fret (Bb) and the usual "Banty Rooster" slide pattern, which as I hadn't really noticed before is really a forerunner of "Rollin' and Tumblin'."

My main problem in approaching "Moon Going Down" was assuming Patton was playing both parts and trying to figure out the low and high parts as one. Thanks for all the help on figuring Charlie out.
