I think it's a great arrangement, but...

Where do I find the second fret on the fifth string? wink

Are all the 5th string notes 2 frets high, or just the open string ones?

Of course  I can figure that out myself, but for the less experienced...surprise

Can you fix it? yes

The tab attached in my post shows the 5th string as open and the song is capoed at the 2nd fret etc... I fixed the 5th string  before I posted the tab...j   p.s. Bruno, you must be using your unedited copy of the song...

The sound file in Tefview sounds correct, but no matter how I tried, the link in your first post ( as does the one in the tab archive) opens with this view crying:

Hi Bruno,
I don't know how you have your computer set up or if you have the updated version of Tefview, or Tabledit etc...You may have to talk with Matthieu about this if you can't fix it. I opened the file on several of my computers and this did not happen...Jack

"The Ballad of Jed Clampett" was the first tune I learned in my first incarnation as folk/bluegrass banjo player. I played it for 3 weeks before I could hear the melody since I was moving so slowly. Mike Lawrence of Michael Lawrence Films was the banjo player in the Stephen Foster Story in Bardstown, KY, that year (1964?). Mike very generously let me hang around him that summer. He taught me Scruggs-style banjo and Travis Picking on guitar. What a great summer? And what a lifelong gift Mike gave me.

Jack, Mike was from Indianapolis, as I recall, and played a Vega Earl Scruggs model. I was 16 or 17 and thought he was about 30. He actually was only a few years older than me. He later studied classical guitar at Peabody, I believe. I played guitar and banjo through high school and college. Even had a folk group, The Villagers, in high school. After I was married and had kids, the music slowed down. Picked it back up about 15 years ago. Your guitar tabs in the 60s and 70s were gold for me. In 1969, I was the banjo player in the Stephen Foster Story. I think I was probably there more for show than for any music, but it was a good summer experience.

Back to Mike, his company is MLFilms (Welcome! | Michael Lawrence Films (mlfilms.com) ). He has a great documentary called "Bach & Friends" with contemporary musicians, like Chris Thile, Joshua Bell, and Jake Shimabukura, playing Bach. Also a film on the Smithsonian is a treat.

Several years ago, I discovered Mike on the internet and sent him an email thanking him for helping me that summer. I am still receiving dividends from that experience. Mike's reply was, "I think I remember Bardstown." It was a long time ago. It was more important to me that I had a chance to thank than for him to reply with a "you're welcome" or anything else. (I'm also glad I have the opportunity to thank you for the tabs you shared on your web site years ago.)

Hi David,
Thanks a bunch for the info. I'm glad my guitar tabs helped you. People I really know, can always just ask me for a tab on my site...Jack   p.s. just took a peek at Mike's site--wow, some heavyweights on it--some of the best in the world...I will definitely dig into the site when I get a little time...
