House Of Tom Bombadil

	  		Transcribed by [email protected] 
 
 
I'm a guitar player, so here's the main melody of this song transcribed for  
guitar. This isn't the complete song, but it's a good start. I'm working on finishing it... 
 
I've never played a mandolin, but it sounds like it's an octave higher than the  
guitar. If that's the case, and if you tune  
 
it the same as a guitar, here's how the song could be played: 
 
e---------------------------------------------------------------- 
b-----------------------------------------------3^5-----3-------- 
g--0-0-0----0-----0-2-4^0---5^0---2---0^2---0-2-----2-----2---0-- 
d---------4---2-4---------0-----0---------4-----------4-----4---- 
 
Or you could put a capo on the 12th fret of a guitar and play it that way, it's  
up to you. 
 
If some mandolin/guitar player out there would like to translate this guitar tab 
into mandolin, please feel free. 
 
I'm pretty confident the notes are accurate, but you might to want to change  
the fingerings in order to play it faster. I've given you a few different ways  
to play the theme in here, pick which ever you find easiest. This one sure goes  
by in a hurry. Sounds pretty good on my telecaster though... 
 
Good Luck!
