Does anyone know where I can download a tab of the single string picking part of Big Sandy river? Bluegrass version. Thanks

Here's one that might work, but you have to have Guitar Pro to open it: banjohangout.org/tab/browse.as...l&v=20607 .
Here's another one: banjohangout.org/tab/browse.as...&v=19563.

And another (this one's a PDF) banjohangout.org/tab/browse.as...l&v=23725


And there are about half a dozen or more in the tab archive.

Hope one of these (or the half dozen others) will be what you're looking for.

If you slow down a recording of the arrangement you like, with Audacity, for example, you can find the individual notes. It can be tedious, but when I do that (for clawhammer), I find I learn a lot.

Unfortunately the version i'm looking at doesn't seem to be found anywhere. I think I have the notes correct. Its the single string break. I wanted to check via a tab that I was picking the strings correctly in one place. I.e that I'm using the correct thumb finger on a particular string. A tab would show this. However I can't find the version I've learnt on a tab anywhere. There does seem to be a few different versions of this tune. winkquote:

Correctly is whatever works for you *smiles*. I make up fingerings all the time, then refine them to get them to flow easier for my fingers. I started out using complicated fingerings to just get the melody out, and to give me practice doing different stuff (hammer ons, multiple hammers, multiple pulloffs, etc)....then as I revisit a song, I usually discover something that works better/smoother/ etc. Moving up neck from 1st position fingerings sometimes makes things flow more smoothly.

I imagine everyone does something like this, but it's your banjo and you can play it, and research it, however you want. Please post your results when you wish, I'd like to hear your bluegrass, even though I claw.
