Just try to strum the chords, or experiment with different rolls instead of strumming.

You can find the chords here: https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/waylon_jennings/good_ol_boys_chords_72403

Yea thanks but I’m way passed that and the tab is inaccurate and most are because it’s in F and they forget to mention that it’s capoed. I know the chords and I can play something that’s pretty close but I’d like to see the exact pattern if anyone has it. For the fast roll on c, 2 quick pickup notes then a 7-10 slide on D forward roll then pull off on first string 8th fret, capoed at the 5th I know that’s how it starts

I don't hear any banjo in the song - there might not be an exact pattern of rolls (at least Waylon's original studio version), and we don't know what tab you're referring to. If you can link the recording and the tab, you will get a lot more help to your particular problem and avoid all the guesswork and inappropriate suggestions.

I am sorry if I tried to help you, but your question was not very clear.  In Sweden we have a saying like" as you ask. you get the answer". You should read this thread how to request a tab: https://www.banjohangout.org/topic/349101 

The version I listened to didn't have any banjo, so if you want a banjo tab you should at least contain a link to the version you are thinking of.

You don't mention what style you play even if you mention "fast roll", but with the information you have given it is difficult for us to know what fast rolls you are talking about.

In other words, you want someone on BHO to make you a tab based on the theme with lots of "fast rolls" in it?. There is no banjo in the theme song...

Um yes there is. You ever seen the show? It has banjo on it, the radio version does not. The banjo player was Lary mcneely. And I was just asking for some help. I don’t want anyone to “make” anything for me. If anyone has an accurate tab version of the theme from the show I’d be willing to pay for it even

Watch the intro to the show not the radio version and you’ll hear what I’m talking about Jack Baker,

Thanks Jack Baker, this thing has been bugging me for years, always wanted to play that. The end credits have another good solo. For some reason that one is in F# I’m guessing the only reason was due to time constraints at the studio. Maybe they sped it up and it made it a half step sharp or something youtu.be/78FGPVHOPYA

My fault I should’ve been more specific, I assumed that more people have seen the show dukes of hazzard. In the intro to show there is a song called just the good ol boys written and sang by Waylon Jennings featuring a bluegrass banjo played by a man named Larry Mcneely of Lafayette Indiana. It is in the key of F as soon as the chorus starts which is in C, there is a fast bluegrass roll at the 5th fret 2 pickup notes, then a 7-10 slide on the d, a forward roll and a pull off on the 8th fret 1st string. I know all this from playing it over and over and banging my head on the wall in frustration, I’m close but if anyone could help me get it exact I would be willing to pay money. Yes there is a radio version that was released shortly after the original version on the show that doesn’t have any banjo in it. Does that clear it up for you Moooo mike and dude from Sweden?

Thanks Jack, there’s a helpful idea, do you know of any and how to go about hiring one? Once I master this song which I will I’m going to make a YouTube video and free tab for whoever wants it. I’ve seen threads on here from years ago from other ppl looking for it too. I intend to solve this mystery and make it available for ppl

I've always done my own tabbing so I wouldn't know who to ask. People on BHO will certainly know....J

Yea I hear ya, most things I can pick out myself but this one is just a little too fast for my ear, I’ve recently figured out that you can adjust the playback speed on YouTube tho which has helped in a huge way but could still use some help, I can play along at 75% and it sounds close but I’m still missing just a little something. I’m not giving up til I nail it tho, I’m too close. And once I do I’m sharing so if anyone else wants to learn it they can and not have to go thro this bs. It’s happened to me several times in my life where I fall in love with a song but it’s obscure and tab doesn’t exist. With the rapid advancements in technology tho I’m sure you’ll be able to get anything you want soon

A google search seems to show that Tom Arri (banjotom2.org) once posted a version to the tab archive, but it's not there now.
You might want to contact him to see if he will let you buy a copy or perhaps he'll even make it available on his site, if he actually has it.

Thanks Jed, I’ve already tried that too. It looks like it was about ten years ago, I tried looking for him and clicking on those links but is another dead end. I’m almost there tho, I will be posting my own tab soon

jfennessy,

Well what do you know?, Tom Arri must have heard what you were looking for. I just checked his website (banjotom2.org), and he posted his version of Dukes of Hazzard! He must have heard you were looking for it, and nice (and generous) guy that he is, he made it available. You should check it out. Be sure to use .org, not .com.

Tom's site has a lot of tabs. I check the site regularly, and frequently find great tabs that interest me.

Tom, if you're watching, Thank you!!!!!
