I don't have a tab but looking at the Steve Baughman version I can make a couple of suggestions. Morgan Megan is normally played in G as per a tab in the tab section on the site, but Baughman is playing in B.

As far as I can tell his tuning is Gb Db Gb B Db. I found I could busk the tune using this setup.

The triplets he plays are using his California roll, his own invention, which is demonstrated more clearly on another YouTube video I found. I haven't got a link but just search for Baughman California roll.

I hope this helps

Tuning is Double C but just a little lower than 440 Hz pitch .

I have started to study this version some days ago by ear. There will be work :)


I also warmly recommend his "Zen Banjo" DVD, very nice stuff to study on it !

For accuracy he's playing 30 cents below C or 20 cents above B. If you want to play along with the video tuning down makes it easier.
