I have the two tab books with Steve Martins songs. I have fallen in love with Promentory Point one of his newer songs that are not in them. Any idea where I might find tabs for it, I have looked all over. Any of his newer clawhammer songs would be great also.

I was not familiar with this tune, and I like it. I tabbed this version which is a bit more chordal than mmuussiiccaall's. I think the double-stop chord positions will be a good exercise for some of my students - though at a considerably slower tempo than what Steve Martin plays. Today I learned that this is actually Steve Martin's portion of a two-banjo duet with Tony Trischka. Martin plays a slightly different melody in the duet.

My tab is based on the original video posted in mmuussiiccaall's message. I tabbed a good bit of drop thumb. BVF's profile says he is new to the banjo. You can probably just bum-diddy away and ignore the drop thumbs.
