ells of Rhymney by the B
        B        
yrds This is how I play the song.  A

fter listening to it since 1965, it was a revelation to me (once I started to try to pick it up) how much the dropped-D
        D        
 tuning adds to the B
        B        
yrds arrangement. Having the bass tuned down to D
        D        
too really puts a floor under the song! The tab, of course, is not perfect.  C

orrections, additions, etc. always sought and welcome. Peace. Rick rsambuaol.com __________________________________________ THE

Meanwhile, what I do is improvise a bit around this. Most of it is strummed~~~~~~~~. I think Pete Seeger would approve of (any) liberties I've taken; I hope Roger McGuinn would, too.  D
