I've always thought this cool instrumental by Tommy Emmanuel would lend itself to banjo, so this is what I came up with. Starting from scratch last Friday and over the weekend, I finally settled on this adaptation of the tune. Tommy does this tune in different keys, and it's easy to find examples of him playing this in D, Eb, E, F, and G, depending on where he puts his capo. I decided on D to grab the lowest note on the banjo. I rendered an MP3 of my tab, to full speed of ~130 bpm, about where Tommy plays it. For what it's worth, I hope someone gets something from this. Reference recording for the tab posted--view here.
