Does any have the tab for Bela Fleck's "Big Country" intro (PDF would be great)? I know he has different versions, but the one I hear most often appears in my favorite version:

Thanks fellow-pickerers!

Thanks Mike! I saw this and this is what I'm actually working from. Unfortunately, it doesn't have that cool intro Bela plays....unless I'm missing it. I've tried to recreate it....getting close....but no banana yet. Thanks for your reply, much appreciated.

Unfortunately, I think that particular intro is unique to that performance. It's a slick intro!

That it is! ;-)

I did a tab of this but didn't include the descending part at the beginning. Here is what I tabbed Big Country which comes from the video you cite and another that had parts C and D the way I wanted to play them. Here's the scale I omitted:

I think this is it! Awesome! Thank you very much. You've made my wife very happy having to listen to me mangle the beginning now for two weeks. You've saved yet another marriage. Moooooooooooo!!!
