Whiskey Before Breakfast

An arrangement of the American fiddle tune. This version is played in the key of C, which allows for the pleasant ringing sound of open strings. Capo the 2nd fret for the jam friendly key of D.

There are many interpretations of this song, but here is a fairly simple arrangement. Try to play out of the chord shapes as much as possible, and then it will be easier to find your own variations.
