Tabs & Tunings
Reviews & Setlists


Those tabs are far from being perfect as Kelly's playing can't be taught just by giving chords and tunings. my advice is to listen to his songs carefully, those transcriptions may help you too ;)
Don't forget to check out the two Homespun videotapes, they also includes tabs. Also if you want to learn the lapslide guitar, KJP teaches a beginner lesson @ www.acguitar.com.

Please send me tabs, questions & correction
