I  was wary of posting this as I know most members are fluent sight readers and I have no desire to seem thick in any way, but I was hoping that someone might be able to help me out.

I know that the score for 'Niggertown' is in the library, but I read extremely slowly to say the least,and that coupled with an eye condition makes it difficult for me to follow. I am having a problem figuring out the short,simple chord sequence played as introduction by Ollie Oakley in his version, I am almost, but not quite there Is there a tab for this at all??

If you have the dots for the version you like (I don't have Oakley's version), I will be happy to convert it to Tab for you. Great music with an unfortunate title!

Thank you Trapdoor,but I only have the version from the site library, I was hoping that that, coupled with the two juke box versions also here, would be sufficient for me to work out the inversions played as they sound very similar on both recordings. (I did have a terrific recording by Ray Andrews, but I have misplaced it,and can't recall if he played the introduction)....

Hi man, I was just checking this tune a few minutes ago and listened to Olly Oakley version...!

Maybe that Okley played fast the 2 first chords, but maybe : G,G7(on F),A7(on E), Cm(on Eb), G (on D). Keep on the lecture of Morley score (or other), time is really efficient and make you understand better and faster each time you focus on score, even it can be apparently slow.

By the way I was going to post a new topic about : how is it possible to not find any consistent informations about the great Olly Oakley on the internet ? I think that he doesn't even have a wikipedia page. This banjo player was awesome and recorded a lot of stuff, I don't understand this.

Ok. Here's a very quick tab for the introduction. This is from the Turner's Banjo Budget No. 853. I can't make out anything from the Oakley recording, just too distorted for me.

Thank you Trapdoor2,between your tab and Remi's comment, I will sort it out I'm sure, I think the difficulty I had was more the right hand pattern, Thank you guys, I'll close the post now.
