Hi guys, 
I'm new in here, i have my banjo some time, still learning. When searching YT to find some good music, I found amazing this amazing song from the title of topic. But i cannot find anywhere tabs for it, could anyone help with that? Maybe someone has them? 

Move on yt was "Jim Jones at Botany Bay - Banjo Cover" - AB junior, amazing song. Really want to play this. 
Someone can help?

What playing style are you looking for?

Fingerstyle: (482) Jim Jones at Botany Bay - Banjo Cover - YouTube

Clawhammer cover: (482) Monolith - Jim Jones At Botany Bay (Cover) - YouTube

I see now that you asked for tab in the comments to the fingerstyle version. Is that correct?

Yeah, fingerstyle seems better, and in that YT cover sounds awesome.

I tried, menaged to get couple of first rolls, but the quality of video is poor, can't catch every move, even in 25% speed

Give this a try. It may not be exact, but it should get you started.

This tab is based on a cover of the tune available on YouTube ((485) Jim Jones at Botany Bay - Banjo Cover - YouTube ). The banjo in the video is in standard G tuning tuned down to open D (dADF#A), as noted by mmuussiiccaall. This tab and MP3 are in standard G tuning for ease of learning. The song is in 6/8 time with quarter notes followed by an eighth note or a rhythm of dah-dit dah-dit. The picking style is two-finger.
