I found the tab for "The Lucky One" posted by Freddie D. Holt in 2012, but it is in TABLEDIT format, and when I click on it, it comes up as a jumbled, unrecognizable collection of symbols. Does anyone know how I can make it appear in a readable format? Or better yet, does anyone have a PDF version? (I really don't like TABLEDIT, but if it's all I can find, I'll work with it.) Also, is there a video anywhere of someone playing this song on the banjo? Thanks for any help you can give.

Here is a PDF version. I used Tuxguitar (linux) to import the .tef file and export as PDF. I hope it posts correctly.

OldBlindGuy's looks complete and may meet your needs. You can also open TablEdit files with a free app, TefView, from the vendor. You can also play the .TEF file using the built-in Midi in TefView. Here's the PDF output from TablEdit.

Thank you very much!  I will look at both of them, and maybe combine the best of each!

I've come across one video for the song. It is a rather rough recording, and I have no idea if the arrangement is even close to the one that is tabbed out.

I hope this helps.

You need the proper software to download Tabledit to your computer. Go here and download TefView. tabledit.com/tefview/index.shtml . It's a free copy of Tabledit and will allow you to see the tabs instead of a bunch of gibberish.

I just downloaded the song and the tab came up just fine. I could listen to it and change the tempo and edit in other ways. It's not the complete software, but it'll work for looking at, printing and listening to .tef tabs.
