Last Friday, we turned our focus to the melodious, foot stomping number known as “Johnny Don’t Get Drunk”. Regrettably, our beloved hero ignored our advice. It seems the dulcet and driving tones from our five string only stoked his fire, prompting him to gild the lily with more than a few stolen swigs from the forbidden flask.
Temperance is not Johnny’s forte.
Alas, now we find Johnny in a pitiful state.
But the party must go on! While Johnny may be sprawled prone on the dance floor, pay him no mind. Just “Step Around Johnny”, and you won’t miss a beat.

Notes on the tab
Skip Notes: The notes denoted by an “X” are “skip” notes, meaning they’re not actually sounded by the picking finger. Instead, you continue the clawhammer motion with your picking hand, but “skip” playing the note by not striking it (this is a technique used to add space and syncopation). The fret number you see in the shaded box is the suggested note to play should you elect to strike the string.
