I'd love this if at all possible Joash: 
I found the guitar tabs if that helps: http://www.guitaretab.com/c/cale-j-j/2913.html

I purchased CHORDiCA yesterday and I just love it.

Thank you.

Hi Steve!

Thanks for supporting with a purchase and for loving it.   I hope I can do my best to maximise the value of the CHORDiCA with whatever I can provide here.

Here's a quick guide to setting up for the song Cajun Moon - J J Cale

Set your Key to F#

Referencing the guitar tabs, do the following conversion...

Change all Em7 to 6:6
Change all A to 2:2m
Change all B7 to 3:3m

Explaining a 'split':

whenever you see two numbers written out like x:x it means you are being told exactly what to play for both your left (bass) and your right (harmony). So for 2:2m, you will play a 2 with your left finger and a 2m with your right finger.

The next step after knowing the right numbers to hit is to know when to hit them. The rhythm style you use to 'hammer' them on the Chordica will give you the sense of different music styles. Try experimenting with tapping them together with the music as it plays and see if you can get a feel of tapping with style. 

Hope that helps!
