Happy New Year tab fans! Here's a request for Nathan Fleming's steel intro and break off Charley Crockett's song "Jamestown Ferry". It's from Charley's CD "Lil G.L.'s Honky Tonk Jubilee". I've only seen some of Charley's videos but I've read several articles about him and he seems like a pretty cool dude who has paid his dues.
As always, corrections and comments are welcome.

If you're working off the CD the intro is right at the start and the break is at 1:49
If you're using this youtube video, the intro doesn't start until 0:35 and the break is at 2:25

Hey Jeff, what are your thoughts on fingering for the right hand on the first bit in the intro? Just the walk up part. I can play it at 50-75% speed, but having trouble playing it at the actual speed. I’m thinking it can be an issue with my picking.

Hey Jamie...to each his/her own but I think for economy of motion, I would assign the thumb to string 6, index finger to string 5, and middle finger to string 3 throughout the intro. I think that makes more sense than moving your thumb back and forth from string 5 to string 6 in the first two beats of the triplets - you're going to need the full three string grip at the end of the line anyway. Just until you learn it (I'm guessing the 2nd and third beats of each triplet feel a little weird) try hitting the 5th string as well as the 6th string on the second beat of each triplet. Once you've got that steady 1-2-3 down only hit string 6 on the second beat of each triplet. It's worth a try Smile
