Hawaiian Paradise - Bud Tutmarc - C#minor

Tabs by David J. Stewart | April 2016

Bud Tutmarc (1924-2006) did remarkable things throughout his musical career by performing on just one tuning, the C# minor. (The tuning from treble-to-bass is: E, C#, G#, E, B, E). For the tabs below (tabbed exactly as recorded by Bud from his album, "Hawaiian Paradise"). Enjoy!

**BELOW: After picking the note on the 3rd fret, only slide up a half a fret and then back. Do it quickly. Use plenty of vibrato!

Hawaiian Paradise” | Download (I used this A7th tuning setup on my D-10 ShoBud pedal steel to record 
this song. I paid someone to make this backing track for me, which you can have and use completely free. 
It is a beautiful song to play on C6th).
