Hey. I'm new here. I wanted to know if someone could help me out. I searched google and couldn't find a tab for this song ANYWHERE, however, I did find a video on youtube. I tabbed it out the best i could. This is the FIRST tab I've ever tried to do...

The problem is that it doesn't sound too much like the actual song, "gabriel and the vagabond" by Foy Vance. So, any corrections or constructive criticism you guys can offer me would be great. thanks in advance. -daleo

this is a pretty good tab. and it's the only one i could find on the internet. the only main thing i'd change is the x-5-4-0-5-5 before the first G in the verse. in the live video Foy Vance plays a Dm so it would be x-5-7-7-5-5. but thanks for posting the tab, it was of great help, and a great first tab.

you should definitely post this on the UG main tab site, rather than the forum so it's easier for others to find. and i'd also suggest adding what chords are being played, even though you're finger picking and not strumming. i just know it made it easier for me to write the chords out on my printout of this tab. if you need the names of the chords, starting with the verse they are (in order):

D, A7, D, Bm, A/C#, Dm, G, D, F#, Bm, A, G, D/F#, Em(add9), G6, A7, Bm, Bm, A, Gadd9, G, D, F#, Bm, Gadd9, A7, D

and the chords for the chorus (in order) are:

D, G, D, A7, D, D/F#, G, D, A7, D, D/F#, G, D, A7, D, D/F#, G, A7, Bm, A, G, A7 -> intro

i'm sure you can figure out the placement of those over your tabs. thanks again for the tab

I made a mistake. the Dm that comes after tha A/C# is actually a Dadd9, not a Dm.

And I went ahead and posted my own version of the tab. I gave credit to you for helping me learn it though.
