I couldn't find a tab for Chet's version of Tenderly, but I found a couple of videos you might be able to glean an arrangement from. The first one is dead on and excellent. The second one is a good one, but short, and the third one is not Chet's version, but I enjoyed it when I watched it.

All good,,,and each can play it better than I can but I thought that Spemcer Barnes absolutely 'knocked it out of the ballpark" didn't he? Boy, he blew me away! That guy can sure play well,,,,boy, he was on the money for Chet's arrangement, smooth as silk.

I don't think I've ever heard a better "note-for-note" version of Chet's arrangement...than Spencer's! Beautiful!

Just remember the Chet Atkins rule....

Be respectful of the songwriter and play true to his writing the first time through and then for the rest of the song....make it yours! Worked great for Chester B.....

Brian, some times when you get stuck working out a song, you can play a song in the Windows Media Player and and use the playing speed feature to slow it down enough to help you figure out a passage. It doesn't change the pitch, just the speed. My ears don't pick up things like they used to and slowing it down helps me come as close as I ever would have to working out a song. Give it a try...I'll bet you can get those chords. Good luck with it.
