Tabbed for a 12 hole Key of C Solo tuned chromatic

Tab notations:

-1*_-2* = slur; slide smoothly from note to note,
as if to slur all the notes together as one.

Of Special Note: This is only for the fox’s finish &
requires a second person as The Fox is singing while
the lead person is holding a sustained note.
. = on lower register (first 4 holes on a 16 hole OR
first 4 holes on a Tenor C). Or disregard and play it
