Not sure even what key I would use. Want some tab instead?

Tab's good - but at your leisure. No rush!

The Nylguts come in two thicknesses:  Classic and Minstrel.  The Minstrel set is a little heavier and works well for the low tunings.  The classic set can actually be used on regular openback banjos up in oldtime keys/tunings.  If you have a long scale length then the classic set will help you tune higher.

Yes, I have a spare set of Minstrels, so I am changing them out today. I bet this will be great.

Hey Tim - no need for the tab. I've pretty much got all the notes worked out. Just need those jazzy chords up the neck on the last part. Thanks!

It's like moving a guitar "F" formation.....3 spots

That's got it thanks!

I would deff give this tune a go if you do get the tabs up :D

Oh cool....I'll draft it up tonight. It will work in any key then.

If you are doing the TAB would music notation be easy enough to go along with it?

If too much trouble, I can probably get it by ear.
