The Gambler as Recorded by Kenny Rogers – 3-string Open G GDG – Tablature for Cigar Box Guitars

This is one of the best known of the classic country songs, and now you can play it on your cigar box guitar! Don Schlitz wrote this song and Kenny Rogers made it famous with his cover of it in 1978. This version of it has been arranged and tabbed by Glenn Watt. Glenn gives us two versions of the song – the basic melody line, and then the tabbed version with the chords.

You can view the printable tablature sheets by clicking on the link or images below. Glenn presents 3 versions of this song – a simple melody-only version, melody with chords, and finally just the chords with lyrics. You can also watch the video below where Glenn shows you how he plays the song on his 3-string cigar box guitar tuned to Open G “GDG”.
