Sand
(in B11th tuning)

Tablature for Lap Steel Guitar by David J. Stewart

       This is the most popular Hawaiian song played in the B11th tuning. It is simple to learn and enjoyable to play. Every steel guitar player in Hawaii knows this classic song. The tabs are not exactly as what I played, but they're in the ballpark. I would never use C6th to play this song, because B11th sounds much better here.
