I haven't found anything on the web worthwhile, but a good friend of mine plays alot of garcia bluegrass.

If you could be more specific on what your looking for i may be able to get him to transcribe some tunes for the benifit of the population.

I'd like to pick his brain myself.

down with picks, long live fingers.

for a lot of the songs you can find a decent version at deadstein.com, but a few of the songs are off a bit but not too bad to figure out. also www.geocities.com/darksaw has transcriptions of solos and generally accurate versions of things...
