I really love her version but can't find tab for it and she doesn't have it.

I have cognitive problems learning by show and tell (and ear). Anyone have the tab or something similar to hers? Thnx

Here's what I get from Hilarie's video.  She clucks on some of the brush strokes.  She's a great player and teacher!  

I learn best by ear, but tab helps me "see" what the hands are doing.  Hearing which string, which fret or whether it's open,  and right hand movements all spoken while someone is playing slows down my learning process as I mentally connect the aural explanation to the kinesthetic hands.  And looking at the neck and fingering of a player makes me feel dyslexic -- I just don't get it easily looking at it "in reverse." (Remember The Banjo Lesson painting by Mary Cassatt and how the student sits next to the teacher and not across from her?)  But the visual to the kinesthetic is more automatic for me, hence I can use tabs.  We all have our own learning modes, that's the truth.
