Dry Bone Rag

That'll never happen no more

"Dry Bone Rag" is played in 4/4 time.

 I was sent this tab song by Mark Bedell. He told me he came across this a long ago.  I haven't had a chance to learn this yet. So I don't have suggestions or advice about how to play this.

It doesn't on the face of it appear to be too difficult...so I'll add some more notes when I get a chance to spend time learning this piece.
