So I've been on and off trying to play this for 6 or so months, I know it's an easy C F G progression, but Ronk's fingerpicking is a monster to take on. So far I can play the C rhythm, it's just the C Shape with a simple alternating A-D-E-D (STRING, not pitch) bassline, and plucked B G B G E E (again, strings. It's all around the open C, the two Es at the end are because he pulls off from the Third fret to the Open String). But when I switch to the F I can't figure out the rhythm he plays, same with the G. And the solo just forget it, no way on God's green earth I can figure it by ear.
I play my own arrangement of this anyway (in DADFAF tuning, try it sometimes if you want a sinister sound), but I still really would like to learn how he played it

So I've been able to further work out the pattern of the verse, but still no progress on the solo (I'm referring to the solo found in this link: https://youtu.be/ktThpR_s6jI ). Since so many people viewed this I'm assuming more people want to learn the song, I'll write a tab of what I know sometime later tonight, and I hope someone will then go on to correct it or do the rest
So bear in mind not only is this my first tab but I did it on my phone notepad, so it's not the best. I used a ~ to represent the one hammer on. It's a simple alternating bass lone (I know the rhythm in my tab is a bit off)
