    Default Redbird River - how to play

    I'm new to the mandolin, and I'm trying to figure out how to play Redbird River by Dale Ann Bradley, but I can't find any TAB, just chords. The song is way too fast for me to try to pick it up by ear. Is there some place on the web that has TAB for intros and solos, and not just chords?

    The first run up is basically an A minor arpeggio (low to high) - A - C - E - A - C - E - G - A.

    I think the bluesy lick right before she sings is: A string (Eb - E - C) - (D string) G - Eb - E - G - (G string) C

    Try playing it on youtube at 50% speed using the setting tab.
