Does anyone know of a tab for the banjo part in Graceland Too by Phoebe Bridgers? Thanks so much!

Do you have a preferred playing style? It sounds like it could be played finger style or clawhammer style. Here's a link that may help someone help you.

I can offer some pieces to the puzzle, but I don't have tab for the tune as a whole. The banjo is far into the background on the recording.

She sings the tune in the key of Bb. Using open-G tuning (gDGBD) capoed at the 3rd fret will match her key. I have attached a short tab for clawhammer for what I hear in the banjo introduction. The tab is in the key of G to keep things simple. Also, since I don't know your skill level, I have kept the tab pretty basic.

You can find the chords for the tune in Bb here: GRACELAND TOO CHORDS (ver 2) by Phoebe Bridgers @ Ultimate-Guitar.Com 

I have also attached a PDF with the lyrics and chords in G. To help you understand the relationship between Eb and G keys for the tune, here are the chord equivalents.
Bb = G
Eb = C
F = D or D7
Gm = Em

Let me know if you have questions.
