Fiddle Tab Do Lord

Will Fiddle Tab Do, Lord?

Apologies for the play on words in the title. I sincerely hope that fiddle tab will do.

Here’a a good version of the song itself, featuring Johnny Cash.

 

And here are the Johnny Cash lyrics. I don’t know if they are any different from the traditional lyrics for Do Lord.

“Do Lord”

Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Way beyond the blue.I’ve got a home in glory land that out-shines the sun.
I’ve got a home in glory land that out-shines the sun.
I’ve got a home in glory land that out-shines the sun.
Way beyond the blue.Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Way beyond the blue.I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too.
I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too.
I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too.
Way beyond the blue.Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Do Lord, O, Do Lord, O do remember me,
Way beyond the blue.
On thing you notice about this fiddle tab chart, when you relate it to the recorded Johnny Cash performance, the verse and the chorus have exactly the same tune. Only rhythm is different. Same notes. That makes it an easier song than some, right there.
The rhythm is the challenge if you are not used to dotted rhythm. There are dotted quarters with eighths and dotted eighths with sixteenths. Even orchestra players get these wrong sometimes. It casn be intuitive for you if you just compare the song as it is performed and the tab as it is written.
You can simply take the bow changes as they come without undue emphasis on making a down bow on the first note of the bar. The one exception is going from the verse to the chorus, I suggest taking another down bow for the first noted. It’s easy to prepare the down bow during the one beat of rest.
