Today’s tune is
This is a bluegrass type tune in the key of D in the A part, and the key of its relative minor, Bm, in the B part. I could not find any real background as to the history of the tune. The word “Kiowa” usually refers to the Kiowa Indians, but I have no idea if the tune title has anything to do with the Kiowa Indians. Perhaps I’ll run across more information later.:) The tune is fun to play, so that’s what matters!
Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Kiowa Special -Gtr TAB
There were very, very few videos out there that feature Kiowa Special, but here is one of them by the Aaron O’Rourke Trio.
Also, on my Fiddle Tunes in PDF page, you will find a link for a practice video for Kiowa Special! Just check out the banner at the top of this page.:)
So……….your guitar is calling you – go grab it and try this tune!
