Fisher's Hornpipe Beginner Tab: This Tab is based on a break by Famous Flatpicker Doc Watson. Doc is a fabulous guitar player and his guitar breaks are clean, basic and fast! He was one of my favorite guitar players when I was first playing the guitar and sticking with his flatpicking style will give you a great sound as well.
Fisher's Hornpipe Advanced Tab - The Third Break: This break differs significantly from the beginner version and the intermediate version offered here. This one is played in the key of G major without the use of a capo. You will note that the other versions are played in the key of C with a capo on the 2nd fret, placing the break in the more traditional key of D major.
Even though this Tab is relatively easy to play, at least the Part A portion anyway, you will find that the Part B will present some challenges for your left hand fingering. Just form the chords and hold your fingers firmly in place and smoothly transition between chords in the higher positions and you will find it easy to learn. Playing it up to speed will be another matter though.

Memorize Your Ultimate Guitar Tab:
Make sure to memorize your songs. What is the easiest way to do this? Unless you have perfect pitch, you will have to learn one section or measure at a time. Once you can play flawlessly move on to the next measure and add it to what you have memorized. Continue this and make sure you can play the first half of the song, including the second ending.
Once you have the first half memorized, move on to the second half, doing the same thing with the second half of the song.
