Guitar tab -  The Water is Wide

Some viewers and prospective purchasers are concerned over complexity of tab/notation. On request I will send out a handwritten pdf of  chord diagrams, with timing for phrasing of the words for 'The Water is Wide'. Please go to the contact page if you would like the free pdf.

feedback from tab purchasers:

"Dear Ian! Thank You for the score and tabs. Now I am able to play and sing the song with a good sounding accompaniment.  ........Friedrich from Cary USA
