Tuning: (EADGCE) tune the B to a C to avoid some tricky stretches and make it a 
lot easier, if you don’t want to retune then add 1 to all the B string notes. 


This song is meant to be played on a banjo but I tried my best to transcribe it for guitar. 


I tabbed it using the audio from this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfSPfdA8KoQ
So it won’t match up perfectly to the recording (some of the fills just sound too 
empty on one guitar) but it sounds pretty good.
In my opinion this is the best way to play it with just one guitar.

Main Riff:
