Tabs for The song from The Bridge over the River Kwai would be cool as well Smiley

I saw that someone performed Nights in White Satin with a Mountain Ocarina in G but can't find the tabs for it. Anyone have them? The flute solo @ 2:21 is really what i'm looking for.

I don't do tabs but I will try to teach you how to fish.
Note this site only has older tunes which are not copy write on it.

go to http://abcnotation.com/  and enter the name of the song you are looking for in the search engine.  If it finds any matches it will look something like this:

Quote
X:1
T:Speed the Plough
M:4/4
C:Trad.
K:G
|:GABc dedB|dedB dedB|c2ec B2dB|c2A2 A2BA|
  GABc dedB|dedB dedB|c2ec B2dB|A2F2 G4:|
|:g2gf gdBd|g2f2 e2d2|c2ec B2dB|c2A2 A2df|
  g2gf g2Bd|g2f2 e2d2|c2ec B2dB|A2F2 G4:|

Next go to http://www.mandolintab.net/abcconverter.php and paste the song into window.
Next select Mountain Ocarina  C   Or  Mountain Ocarina G and click submit. Note: for the above song you need the G MO to play it because  it is out of range for the C
The program will then give you the output of the song.  You can then click on PDF to get a pdf file you can print .  You can also get a midi file to listen to as well.

Their are other threads on the forums that gives more details about ABC notation so I suggest you do a search on the forums to find out more about ABC notation.   I don't know much about it because I have several books full of songs I like to play.

I hope that this thumbnail introduction was of some help to you in getting started.

If the video of Nights in White Satin was this one, that was me. I don't do tabs, and don't have any sheet music for it.

It's a simple tune, though. Why don't you try to learn it by playing along with the video, and get some ear training in the process? It starts on A.
