Notes: I took the Manzanita Guitar transcription that was here, added a banjo staff and basically copied everything over initially... If I lost a note due to being out of the banjo's register (C natural or an A, on the low end), I moved that note UP an octave... In the end, I found that a lot of what was being played 'in position' was just as easy, if not easier, to play in open position... In those few cases, I moved those parts to the open position, making sure simultaneously, that they 'fit in' with what preceeded and followed those sections, for smooth playing throughout... I also found that the addition of a few hammers and pull-offs (slurs) made certain passages flow better, so I added those... I could never have figured this tune out by ear alone, so Rick Diesel's copy from a guitar original helped get us on the road and on the right path... The rest fell on my 40+ years experience playing guitar, reading music, transcribing experience and finally banjo playing ability... And being very familiar with Tony's amazing musical senses and guitar playing abilities... I genuinely hope this now Tabledited piece helps the folks who seek it out... MartinLuther1960
