You might want to ‘edit’ the ABC’s to remove that redundancy before it gets cast in concrete.

Interesting use of non-key (passing tone) chords (Fmaj and Emaj). Makes for a nice lazy-day kind of tune.


I noticed that too late and to make things even worse: the last note in bar 7 of the a-part should be a "D" not an "E".
In case you do’t know already: Frank plays this one in standard tuning and does not use open strings.
