Jethro Tull tabs

Velvet Green guitar tab

Velvet Green - Jethro Tull 
Transcribed by John Fahey <goog64@yahoo.com> 
CAPO 1st fret - this makes it possible to play the melody in the intro and the breaks 
ACTUAL chords written NOT chord shapes! 

OK, this song has a million different instruments playing different melodies, 
so this is the bit of the melody that I like best. 
INTRO - ACTUAL fret numbers - ie '1' means open string.
