    This is another great ballad for the season.  I love to hear Red Sovine do this one.   Bringing Mary Home

    Always loved this piece.  Thank you for tabbing it and I’ll be working on it very soon.   Enjoy the way you did it too.

    All that’s showing up here under ‘tabs & notes’ is the intro…am I missing something? (Windows 7 & Firefox)

    Actually this is only the turnaround for “Bringing Mary Home,” assuming that a singer is singing the verses. I guess I need to teach the song so non-singers can play along!

    I was thinking of playing the accompaniment for the singer.  I guess you could just cord & improvise, but it would be nice to have the tune…

    That would be a good addition. I need to teach more backup!

    Thanks Nancy! If you get a chance, upload a video to YouTube then drop the link into our “Lion’s Den” forum for review. 🙂
