After this the guitar plays a steady bluegrass rythm, the banjo plays a roll.
(I ll try to TAB a suggestion for guitar when i have some time to spare)
Punctuate the guitar rythm with the licks from the intro. Listen to the recording
by Eric Weisberg (banjo) and Steve mandel (guitar) on the album named "Duelling banjos"
(also released as "New dimensions in banjo and bluegrass")on Elektra(Eks 7238 vinyl).
Dueling banjos is not the fastest tune on the album!!

On eletric i play the banjo strum something like this( pick and fingers, tele style) let 
all string ring as
long as possible (indacated with ===)

Ok, it's bollocks. The line after the chords is incomplete, so are most of the lines.To see a better version, check out moving men's version. No offense.
