    Hi...
    I just wonder if anyone out there has the tabs for Black Betty with Ram Jam? If you do, please let me know, 'cause I'm having some trouble finding out the way of playing the fast part in the song...

    Ram Jam consisted of two guitarists and a drummer. NO BASSIST. Therefore no bass line to Black Betty. Sorry.

    There certainly is a bass line and a pretty damn good one. It's been a while, but I'll see if I still have the recording of it and maybe I can give some help.

    sorry, you are right. I don't know where I got that from (I think it was my guitarist when I said we should play it)

    Yeah it's tough to get the fingering right. When the tempo changes, I play an open D on the D string, and pull off from the B to open A on the A string. Hope that helps.
