Comments:

This is Gary Lee Moore’s version of the Texas standard Hell Among the Yearlings, also known as Cattle Among the Canebreak. Unlike some of the Cattle-titled versions, Moore’s Yearlings doesn’t change keys. It starts and stays in D. The only difficulties here might be two double stops, both with an A on the third string, and with a C# and a D on the second string. The ending chord is similar, with a D on the fourth string and an F# on the third string. There is a nice variation in the B part the second time through the tune.
