Heres my guitar interpretation of the banjo intro theme to the film Hitchhikers Guide to 
Galaxy. I always loved this tune from the original eagles version "Journey of the 
used in the radio play. Though this is based on the film version.
Its a bit clunky, but hopefully some of you will enjoy it.

Thanks. Alas I have no idea about the banjo tab. Just improv'd this straight from the theme. Theres some vids on youtube but no how-to-play guide on banjo I think.
