Just a shot in the dark here, but does anybody have the banjo tablature for Egyptian Princess and Zarana?  I had poor timing and ordered and paid for the tablature from Clifford Essex but it was unfortunately JUST at the time they shut down.  I corresponded with a person at the website about this and she explained the unfortunate situation there, so I am aware of that.  I just thought I would ask here if anybody has it on this site and would upload it since I can not purchase it.

I realize the sheet music is available on this site too, but sadly I still can not read notation.  (I know, I know.... I will learn but I am at this point unable to devote the time to that.  I WILL get to it but not right now.)

Thank you.

Sorry to be "that guy" but you will spend a lot of time painstakingly learning those two pieces, tab number by tab number.  In the end you will only know how to play those two pieces.

On the other hand, if you were to take a course of study like the Bradbury Method, along with some good easy supplements, at the end of the same amount of time you will be able to play ANYTHING at your current level from the music.

Also, those advanced pieces will be a lot easier to learn when you get to that level.

Bud, I have sent you a friend request, we can discuss offline. I won't publish any tab I create which might be in conflict with CE (even though they are inactive at the moment). I have my own tab for "Egyptian Princess" and probably can be talked into completing "Zarana" (which I started many years ago). These follow the fingerings originally published, except where I felt the need to alter it for my own fingers.

Not getting into the old Tab vs Notation thing. I like tab.

Thank you Joel.  I am very near retirement and it is my plan to tackle learning to read notation as soon as I do that.
