BaNANA BOAT SONG (HARRY BELAFONTE)


About 

Recently tabbed out Mathilda upon request, so that was a good opportunity to bring to form  „the other song“ of Harry Belafonte.

Lots of other versions on the web, but none I found had that nice triplet irregular part. * 

 

Original Key

?

 

Tuning 

Low G

 

Tab Notes

Three parts: 

A - „Day O ….“.  In line 2, bar 2 there is a variation on the straight four bar theme. 

B - „Six foot, seven foot …“. Stays on the root chord for the first three bars. 

C - „Come, Mista Tallyman …“ The reason why it has to be Low G. 

 

 

* PS: Received a kind e-mail from Helmut Bickel from Austria.  On his YT channel, he explains how to play it - including the triplet part.

          Sorry, Helmut. Nix für ungut.
