Notes: This is my interpretation of Clarence White's crosspicked version of "Bury Me Beneath The Willow". This is an exact transcription of the first iteration of the tune from my YouTube video which can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQQ55wffHAY The song is played out of the C shape and I like the way it sounds on my instrument capoed at the 3rd fret, hence the key being Eb. Of course, you can capo it anywhere you like (or not at all). I included the pickstrokes above the tab; Although Clarence was fond of the DDU style of crosspicking, I prefer the straight, alternate picking approach. One of the nice things about this arrangement is it sounds quite good whether you play it at a slow or fast tempo. Enjoy!
