Correction: p. 35

     Around January 20, 2017 I started shipping from a new printing of "Old-Time Backup Guitar: Learn From the Masters."  You can tell if you received a copy from the new batch because the list price shown next to the barcode on the back cover will be $30 rather than $24.99.

     There's a problem with the layout of the tablature for “And The Cat Came Back The Very Next Day” on p. 35 from the 1/20/17 batch of books.  Please click here to download a pdf file with a corrected version of p. 35.
