Velvet Green - Jethro Tull
Transcribed by John Fahey <goog64@yahoo.com>
CAPO 1st fret - this makes it possible to play the melody in the intro and the breaks
ACTUAL chords written NOT chord shapes!

OK, this song has a million different instruments playing different melodies,
so this is the bit of the melody that I like best.
INTRO - ACTUAL fret numbers - ie '1' means open string.
