Hi there, I've been looking all over the internet for specifically banjo tab, for Caamp - Huckleberry love?
There's the guitar tab which sounds pretty good capped on the second fret.
Looking for something similar if any folk has the time?
YouTube link below
Here is a result of a search for "Caamp". Requests for one or more of their songs comes up from time to time. Don't think Huckleberry Love is one of them though. Your best bet maybe to adapt the guitar tab(s), as you have already discovered. What's your preferred playing style?

Yes I've seen those results. I've scaled the internet heavily.
Huckleberry love has distinguished banjo parts, that's why I'm requesting a tab, as it's a bit big for me.
This song is in the key of F#, so you'd need to tune down (f#C#F#BbC#) to match the video that I used - (1) Caamp - Huckleberry Love (Official Audio) - YouTube My tab assumed open-G tuning.
I think the banjo is just playing an arpeggio for most of the backup. The short tab below is my approximation. In the 2nd line, the first note is dropped to add a little syncopation. In the bridge or chorus, the banjo goes to a C chord shape and you can strum or play an arpeggio that works for you. I did not try to work out what the banjo does up the neck during the instrumental break,
Thanks David. I appreciate it.
I'm a bit all over the lace with tunings..
You said above, tuned to open G ( normal tuning )... What did you mean by tuning down to f# ect..
Can I use a capo?
To tune down to F# from G, each string is dropped one-half step:
1st string - D => C#
2nd string - B => Bb
3rd string - G => F#
4th string - D => C#
5th string - g => f#
You do not have to retune. That's necessary only if you want to play along with the video I linked to in the above message. A capo wouldn't help since you need to tune lower, not higher.
Send me a message through the Hangout if you'd like a short MP3 of the tab.

Don't you hate it when they do that? Great job!
