Well, funny that you asked!! At the Fingerstyle Guitar Resource Center (FGRC) at www.olms-music.com there are three of Earl's guitar solos that I transcribed in a program called TablEdit. This program is also available for download on this site.
On that site, go to Contributors and look for Michael Joyce.
The three tunes are:
The Cannonball Blues from the Vanderbilt album,
Georgia Buck from the Versatile Sound album,
Little Rosewood Casket (recorded as "Reunion") on the Bonny and Clyde album.
These are note for note transcriptions and not arrangements per se. Later in the year I intend to make a medley of Earl's solos of gospel tunes, like God Loves His Children, So Happy I'll Be, You Can Feel It in Your Soul, Let the Church Roll On, etc. and post it. I have a number of transcriptions there of Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Charlie Byrd, and others, but the three that I did of Earl's got more response than any of the others.
I've also thought of doing a medley of Earl's guitar solos of the Carter Family tunes, like Jimmy Brown, and You are my Flower, to name two.
This is all a labor of love. I've listened, loved, and learned so much from Earl's music.
