This tune is really hypnotic (cf "Lost Girl Clifftop 2015 2 CD Release Parties Combined & Friends" on youtube)
I tried to play by hear. Not Easy. Its clawhammer gDGBD tuning
Anyone has a tab for this version of the tune ?

Here's a live link to the video to which I think you are referring:

The text indicates this version of "Lost Girl" is based on John Morgan Salyer's playing rather than Clyde Davenport. 7 or 8 years ago, I tabbed out some of the tunes in Jeff Todd Titon's book, "Old-time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes." I tabbed all of Salyer's tunes, including this one. The tab is posted below. It is based closely on the transcription of Salyer's version by Titon. You may wish to simplify it a bit to make it more playable.

oops! My bad. I misread the text and the author who is Morgan Salyer.
Thanks ever so much for your help.
Now time to play 8-)
