Mind Your Own Business Is A Great Song With Free Fingerstyle Guitar Tablature.

This free online guitar lesson has free fingerstyle guitar tablature and a guitar lesson video.

Mind Your Own Business may be some of the best advice ever offered. It's also a great song, written by Hank Williams.

This arrangement is loosely based on Taj Mahals version of the song.

Hank Williams soulful singing makes some think of him as a blues singer. And this arrangement is sort of a country blues version of Mind Your own Business.

The arrangement is in the key of G. It begins with an instrumental intro then moves to the verse. The verse uses a simple pattern for accompaniement.

The first verses lyrics are printed underneath the accompaniement. The lyrics for verses 2-5 can be found by clicking on "Score" at the top of the page. Then click on "Notes" and you'll find the rest of the lyrics.

Measures 25-36 are a solo section. Remember that the entire solo is based on CAGED chords. Understanding this makes it a lot easier to see what's going on. Look here for a refresher course.

Examples of this are the C chord found at measure 29, which uses the A form. Another example is the G chord in measure 31. It's made using the C form.

The interval of a 6th is also featured (intervals) in this arrangement.

This is a simple way to make a melody line sound "bigger" than it really is. In fact, understanding principles like the CAGED Method and Intervals will make playing fingerstyle guitar a lot easier for you.

I tend to be pretty loose with the arrangement of a song when I play it. That means that sometimes I may play the intro after the solo section. This makes for a longer solo section. Or I might play it again after the 2nd or 3rd verse.

I tend to view the verses, solo sections and intros as components that can be switched around as the spirit moves me. I think that's one of the advantages of playing solo, rather than in a band.

The tab can be found here.
