Notes: Here is a tune I have played since a child on the recorder, and now other instruments. Here it is for Irish tuned Tenor/Plectrum. The stretch for some on the plectrum may be bothersome.

Notes: Here is a steel guitar ending that Allen Shelton frequently played on banjo. It became a part of the Jim & Jesse sound and was used by their later banjo players as well. If you just remember "1-4-1-5-1," you can use this in any major key. The timing is the same as most standard endings; only the chord progression in different.

Notes: This is a right hand fingering excercise. I created this when I noticed that some passages that are index or middle finger oriented were not coming out as neat and clean as thumb-led stuff. All the possible 4-note loopable groupings are written out here. In practice, you want to be able to play these on any strings, not just 1-3.

Notes: The old fiddle tune, the 8th of January arranged for melodic style banjo. The first two breaks are exactly the same, and are in the melodic style with some slight variation on the melody. The third break presents an alternate way to play the melody, in single string style, as well as some more slight variations. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass backup track.

Notes: In addition to creating melodic style, IMHO in parallel to and independently of Carroll Best and Bobby Thompson, Bill Keith introduced to basic Scruggs style layers of elegance, complexity, and subtlety that had not been heard before he appeared on the stage. Here is one simple example that says it all, the first few measures of the first break in the song “Livin’ on the Mountain,” from Keith and Rooney’s album of the same name. Keith took one of Scruggs’s standard licks, employing a forward-backward roll with a pull-off on the third string, and threw in a subtle twist by pulling off to the fifth string and pivoting to the open third. Compare Keith’s version to Scruggs’s in the tab, and you will get my drift. When I heard this in 1963 or 1964, I realized that Bill Keith had opened new horizons on the banjo.

Notes: Here is Bill Keith's arrangement of "A Mighty Fortress" by Martin Luther. This was taken from his performance at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in 2010, which was posted to YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Af5kVilTYms He makes a comment that he "Can't play this standing up". It requires very large and/or extremely flexible hands. I can't really play it sitting down.

Notes: Alternate tab and midi available under "All God's Critters". This tab is a combination beginner and intermediate. Very important to have a drop-thumb at least at measure 7. Alternate drop-thumbs are shown, with a link to the Celtic Thunder version, which has a Scruggs style banjo back-up. Also an entertaining Youtube version available @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqm-S9J1s_k. Linked to Gospel Lover's group, although not truly Gospel, it's just inspiring. Includes lyrics. Also added to Beginner Clawhammer group.

Notes: This is number 222 in O'Neil's Music of Ireland. It's a simple 3/4 tune mostly in quarter notes. I've "banjoed" it up quite a bit - making it eighth notes everywhere. The tune doesn't sound particularly Irish to start with, but the banjo treatment here really makes it sound like something from the Old West. The process is probably a more conscious attempt to emulate something in modern times that evolved naturally historically. I've rated the difficulty here as beginner despite a small amount of drop-thumbing. I quite like this version, and I hope you do too, but now I have to decide whether this is just the starting point, and whether or not I should continue on with some fancier variations. Cheers!

Notes: This is based on the version on Linda Ronstadt's album of the same name from 2006. As noted in the tab, the banjo can capo at the 2nd fret, allowing the guitar/mandolin to play am and dm for the chords. The tab is missing one of the verses, but it can easily be found on the internet.

Notes: I found that the tab plays a bit fast for the song, and if the relative speed is set somewhere between 72% and 80%, it is much closer to how the song was originally played. Tabbed for a 5 string and a cello banjo played together.

Notes: Here's a traditional bluegrass tune with mournful, self-pitying, and nonsensical lyrics. But it is great fun to play on the banjo. My arrangement comprises four breaks, including a high break, and is full of stuff that can be used in other tunes as well.

Notes: Breaks to this old warhorse by three of the greats -- and now I know where many of my "original" ideas came from. The exact picking on Stover's break was hard to hear, but I think I came close to capturing it. The chokes up the neck on Scruggs's break should be played with vigor. It probably helps to hear the original recording, which you can find on www.sugarmegs.org. Crowe's break ends on a whimsical statement of the melody, and you can find this concert recording also on sugarmegs.

Notes: An old pop song from the 'teens, Alabama Jubilee. This is great fun to play, and an excellent tune to jam on as the chord progression lends itself well to improvisation. The two breaks presented here are the melody and a variation closely based on the melody. It has some rolls that are kinda difficult to pull off at higher speeds, mainly the "Dixie Breakdown Roll", so practice, of course, is in order. A rarely played gem; teach it to your local jam and you'll have a blast! Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Notes: This version of All My Loving by the Beatles is based on an arrangement by Tom Arri. This version is slightly different from Tom’s arrangement and it contains Harrison’s guitar solo rearranged for banjo. I thought about adding the triplet guitar rhythm to really make it sound like the Beatles, but ended up not adding it because it muddied the arrangement. If you want to hear how the triplets would have changed the arrangement, I left part of it in module 5 of the TablEdit file. Enjoy!

Notes: Here is one break to the jazz super-standard "All Of Me". The rhythm of the melody has been banjo-fied somewhat, though the chords (still open, Bluegrass chords) are authentic, including a flat-five chord. It's still more of a bluegrass take on a jazz tunes more than jazz banjo. Has some Reno in it. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Notes: All the Blue Bonnets (Are Over the Border) has history dating back to 1820. The song was a march in the Highlands Calvary and was mentioned three times in Laura Ingalls Wilder's books form the Little House on the Prairie series. In 6/8 jig time, it's feasible to use clawhammer to play, and fun, too.

Notes: I posted this example to demonstrate how to make alternate string pull off and alternate string hammer on in TablEdit which are common techniques used in clawhammer playing. In this example I am referring to the banjo rhythm as “bum-pa-di-ty” Alternate pull off (example first string) is indicated by making a fake fretted note: 1. Write 2 (fret 2) on the first string on the “bum” 2. Put a Po(pull off) on it 3. Write 0 on the first string on the “pa” 4. Put the cursor on first “fake” note (2) 5. In the dynamics bar choose ppp. Now it is shown as [2] 0 in TablEdit but when you print the tab the [2] will not be printed. And it will not be sounded on the midi file (all ppp notes are silent). Or if you make a pdf of it, the [2] will not be shown. ̯ The alternate hammer on is in the same way. Write a fake unfretted note: 1. Write 0 (fret 2) on the first string on the “bum” 2. Put a Ho (Hammer on) on it 3. Write 2 on the first string on the “pa” 4. Put the cursor on first “fake” note (0) 5. In the dynamics bar choose ppp.

Notes: I was pondering good songs to introduce my students to 3/4 timing. I asked Ira Gitlin, a fabulous teacher and wonderful contributor to the Hangout, and he suggested Amazing Grace. There weren't any tabs here that I liked very much, so I came up with this. The first time through is super simple, and has mostly melody notes with a few fills. The second time through is a little more complicated and incorporates some melodic elements. The third includes a simple vamping backup using closed chord positions.

Notes: Fairly simple version with a nice sound to it. Take note that it is 4/4 time since many versions of this song are 3/4.

Notes: This arrangement is based on the sean-nós version sung by the lovely Dolly MacMahon. It's in the key signature of G, but that's misleading because it's sometimes A Dorian (as sung here), or, on the uilleann pipes (same key signature), which sounds less like A Dorian and more like D Mixolydian.

It can also be played in 3/4 and in 6/8, as a jig, known as 'The Sheep in the Boat' (Junior Crehan). Compare this arrangement with the highly ornamented version of 'Anach Cuain' (Air/Lament), for advanced players.

Notes: “And the Cat Came Back The Very Next Day”, from Doc Roberts: I have long been an admirer of Doc’s fiddling. He infuses his rich repertoire of tunes with a distinct bluesy sound characterized by powerful, yet smooth bowing and remarkably clear intonation. First, I learned to play this tune on the fiddle. Eventually I was able to eke out a fair approximation of The Cat. I would dust it off from time to time, but really did not fully commit to it, in part because I didn’t feel fully confident in my fiddling. But of course, it kept coming back, insisting that I give it the attention it deserved, so that now it lays curled up comfortably at the fire amongst the other familiar G tunes. I suppose it became jealous of my time on the banjo, so slyly crept into my clawhammer fingers, where it sits now as a banjo favorite. One of the charms of Doc’s fiddle version, is how the tune wanders in no obvious pattern (at least to me) between what I am labeling the A, B, and C parts. In order to share more easily with others, I play it as AABBCC. A brief bio of Doc Roberts compiled from the internet (Wikipedia and other sources) Dock Philipine Roberts was born in 1898 near Kirksville, Madison County, and learned to play the fiddle at an early age with some help from his older brother Liebert. Doc's and Liebert's musical mentor was the African-American fiddler Owen Walker who was born in 1857, and taught Roberts most of his tunes. After finishing his studies in Berea Roberts married in 1913. In 1925, a talent scout, Dennis Taylor, recruited Roberts along with Welby Toomey and Edgar Boaz as old time recording artists for Gennet Records In early 1927, Roberts recorded with the string band, the "Booker Family". Together with Dick Parman and Ted Chestnut, he formed the Kentucky Thorobreds. They recorded in April 1927 for Paramount. In the fall of 1927, teamed up with Asa Martin as Martin & Roberts. They made their recording debut in May 1928 for the Gennett label. Between 1927-1934, the duo performed at fiddler's conventions, in schoolhouses, on vaudeville stages, and on radio (WHAS in Louisville, Kentucky). Martin & Roberts recorded altogether more than 200 sides on 11 different labels. Later on, with the addition of Doc Roberts' son James, the Fiddlin' Doc Roberts Trio was formed. In 1928, Roberts was hired, through the agency of Bradley Kincaid, by the National Barn Dance radio show in Chicago . He was paid $50 a week. After only two weeks he quit the show and moved back to Kentucky because he was unable to sleep due to the noise of the big city. The Doc Roberts Trio lasted until 1934 when Roberts retired as a recording artist. During the next 4 decades, he continued to make personal appearances and occasional radio works. He died at the age of 81 in his hometown of Richmond. The Cat Came Back: I first heard “The Cat Came Back” as a camp song. The melody in Doc’s version, seemed completely separate from my vague memory of that song, so I didn’t give it much more thought. However, in preparation for this post, I conducted an internet search and quickly discovered 1) The first commercial recording of "The Cat Came Back" was by Fiddlin’ John Carson (OKeh 40119) in April 1924. It doesn’t sound at all like Doc’s version "And The Cat Came Back The Very Next Day", recorded on Gennett 3235 on November 13, 1925. However, the Fiddlin’ John’s version appears directly related the Harry S. Miller Song of 1893: "The Cat Came Back: A Nigger Absurdity." Ouch! The racism that runs through much of American popular culture is revealed again. I don’t like reporting this, but just thought you should know.

Notes: Québécois tune from the Olympia Quebecois session repertoire. From the repertoire of Andres Savoie. We usually start it with the B part. We shorten the B part to 8 measures by skipping the 7th measure but I included it in the tab. In the mp3 file I recorded myself over our Olympia Q session - the mp3 starts midway through the A part and skips the 7th measure of the B part. The key signature for the A part is G and the B part is D. It is usually played very fast. Here is a youtube of Andres Brunet playing it very fast on the fiddle (this video starts on the B part): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IXtOpSCcBM

Notes: Here's a bluegrassy version of this old-time tune, in standard G tuning, a fiery melodic version based loosely on fiddler Stuart Duncan's variations with the Nashville Bluegrass Band. I have tried to keep the melody flowing at all times, adding fill notes while keeping the main notes in the usual places, using slides, syncopation, pinches and pull-offs to keep it in the bluegrass camp.

Notes: I don't play banjo, but I made a solo guitar arrangement of the Bela Fleck banjo (/Jerry Douglas dobro) tune Another Morning. I had seen requests for 'Another Morning Part B' on the forums here, so I thought I'd post the TEF file. ( I'm hoping some kind and more experienced member could easily use Tabledit to cut and paste over to appropriately tuned banjo and clean up, since I'd have no idea! ) For "part B" of this tune, Bela does a variety of counter-melodies/rhythms behind the dobro, which carries the main melody +/- 'chords'. I made a solo guitar practice arrangement ~ capturing the total effect, most of the banjo, and the dobro accent/sustain where needed. I think I captured all the main melodic/rhythmic motifs Bela uses, which can be combined in endless ways over the basic chords/rhythm. I think my arrangement is essentially 'Scruggs-style' rolls, mostly w/a low-profile bassline below, and occasionally more typical 'guitar strum' chords (kind of approximating banjo/bass/'chop' trio). EDIT (8/04/2011): updated w/better approximation of dobro slide @ end of intro.

Notes: This is my banjo solo for the song "Are You Missing Me." It's fairly straight forward, but it does occasionally depart from the typical Scruggs style licks in favor of more melodic lines. When I was making this solo, I tried to think about how I would play if I was playing it with Jim & Jesse. I have never done much with tablature, so I would love to hear what you all think.

Notes: Are You Missing Me is a fine bluegrass standard, written by Ira Louvin and associated with Jim and Jesse. I have tabbed 3 breaks. Note the long tag at the end of the first break; I think I first heard it (or something like it) played by Bobby Thompson. The final D measures at the end of the second break feature one of my original D runs, and you might find it useful. The third break includes some melodic sequences that you can plug into a variety of tunes.

Notes: I do not guarantee this is musically correct and I do not guarantee it is just how I played it in the MP3 I posted. I kept finding myself making little changes as I wrote the tab. I did two versions, one "easy", just to provide the melodies as I play them and one "better" with the left and right hand flourishes and slurs. I tend to really accentuate the down beat notes on this song just to keep the rhythm driving. After all, it's Gospel. Let it preach, I say.

Notes: A great "first tune" for the beginner, well-documented and easy to execute. Uses thumb-and-pinch, then alternating thumb (thumb in-and-out a.k.a. TITM), then mixes them up. One simple roll pattern gives three different endings! This is pretty much how I learned it (without a tab) from Jeff Kimball in 1976. [7/9/14 corrected a few small errors in TEF and PDF.]

Notes: Here's the fiddle/jam standard "Arkansas Traveller", key of D, uncapoed. There are two breaks, the first one going to the banjo and the second one a Reno-ish guitar break, part of which is taken from Jeremy Stephens guitar part on his CD, the "Scarlet Banjo". This could be either an Intermediate or an Expert tab. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track, as well as a backup banjo track over the Lead Guitar break.

Notes: I arranged a version of this in Gmaj a few years ago, but decided to have a go at arranging it in the original key of Dmaj after our fiddler fell in love with the tune and wanted us to play it ensemble. It is quite difficult to fit as the tune covers two octaves. I have tried to keep the simplicity and spirit of my original arrangement, which I feel was also in the spirit of Jay Ungar's original for fiddle.

Notes: The Time Signature is awry due to Tabwin inexperience. Should be 6/8 Time Signature. Instead, it registers as triplet sixteenths in 2/4. Added the first line of right-hand notation, the way I like to play it.

Notes: This is a transcription of the Andante movement from J.S. Bach's Sonata for solo violin No. 2 in A minor, BWV 1003. The original is in C Major, but I have transposed it to G Major. Not that everything on the banjo needs to be in G Major, of course, but this piece is especially resonant in the banjo's most idiomatic tonal area.

Notes: Just wrote this yesterday (3/11/13), will re-post when I get around to putting some fingerings in, also hoping to get an mp3 up soon. Quarter = 130 - 140 is about right and be free in the use of dynamics. Copyright, me, 2013, enjoy!

Notes: This is a tune by Jim Reed, one of the BHO's most talented pickers and contributors. Banjo Hell is the name of our campsite at the Appalachian String Band Festival held every summer at Clifftop, West Virginia. I tabbed this out based upon a recorded performance from Jim's CD, Jim Reed, Family and Friends. Jim's banjo is tuned f#DGAD, a tuning that Dock Boggs used once in awhile. I have also seen Jim play this tune with the banjo tuned aDGAD. He never picks anything twice the same way.

Notes: Doug Dillard's great instrumental. I have tabbed out the first Banjo break and first mando break back-up. From there you can move the licks around to figure out Doug's variations for the rest of the tune, everything you need is in there. They fade out for the ending...shave and a haircut is what they have done live. Here's the sound source I was using from the Backporch Bluegrass LP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJTW2ruur-I

Notes: A rather simplified version of that great Civil War tune "Battle Cry of Freedom", also known as "Rally Round the Flag Boys". It's a clawhammer version in G, but can be played solo in Bb (A#) so capo 3 from G (or tune up 3 frets). To play along with the 2nd South Carolina version Youtube link, play in G, remembering that this version is played on a Minstrel Banjo, and has a more haunting sound to it. I've linked this to the Beginner Clawhammer Group.

Notes: Bay State Bounce is a wonderful melodic tune written by the great Bill Keith, who after Earl Scruggs was the major influence on my playing in the 1960s. Bill plays it in A (capo up 2). Thanks to Bill for clarifying how he plays the B part. It is a tough tune to master, but well worth the effort. You might find, for example, that some of the ideas in the B part can be incorporated into a variety of other tunes.

Notes: BSB is a brilliant original banjo tune written by Bill Keith. It has a remarkable internal logic, a flow of melody notes, which is not surprising given Bill’s penchant for mathematics. Many years ago I posted a tab of BSB, but in recently watching a youtube video of Bill playing the tune I detected some errors in my tab. So I have tried to render a tab that is closer to the way he played it. The B part is particularly difficult for the left hand. Pay attention to the section in measure 11, where the trick is to use your index finger to barre the 1st and 2nd strings at the 10th fret and then fret the 5th string at the 14th fret by s-t-r-e-c-h-i-n-g over with your ring finger. It probably would help to have fingers like bananas (which I don’t have). Capo up 2 to play in the key of A.

Notes: Here's a Texas fiddle favorite, "Beaumont Rag". I have it arranged here in my favorite key of F. Labeled "Bluegrass (Scruggs) style, but it's mostly single string and some Reno rolls. There are 2 and a half breaks, the first 2 are adaptions of standard fiddle breaks, with the outro half-break being some doodlings of my own. It might take some convincing to get your jam to do it in F instead of the more common bluegrass keys of D or C, but it's worth it. Has a Texas-ish-style Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Notes: Turlough O'Carolan's Beauty in Tears resembles the old Welsh folk song The Ash Grove. It sounds like a minuet to me and also a Christmas carol. I made a slide show video to accompany the music with background by a cello banjo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kwDz3uS64A).

Notes: The «deacon from hell» is a french-canadian tune that is very modal going back and forth between major and minor, it is also very crooked. 'Legend has it that Thomas Pomerleau, (the composer of this tune), promised a priest that he would throw his violin into the stove in order to receive absolution. He actually threw his violin into the stove and, having received his absolution, immediately withdrew it ... he had taken the precaution not to light the stove'. I played it here on a Gold Tone cello banjo. Here is link to Pascal Gemme playing it on the fiddle: http://pascalgemme.com/tradquebec/page/2/

Notes: There is a great tab of Eager and Anxious on Banjohangout already. This is the B-part, as played on the Spectrum album. It is different from the live versions and i actually prefer this version. It is slightly more difficult than the one already tabbed out but a bit more fancy too. Also included now is the intro from the Spectrum album. The files are PDF. Update 2/20/14: GP5 file included for B part incl small changes.

Notes: Belles of Blackville was the old-time Tune of the Week for 11/4/16. As played by James Bryan, Alabama fiddler, this clawhammer version is in the uncommon tuning of a Gm variant -- aDGAD, though it's also played in double C tuning. The tune was supposed to have been collected by Pennsylvanian folklorist Samuel P. Bayard in the 1930's from William Morris.

Notes: Along with Earl Scruggs and Bill Keith, Allen Shelton was one of my major influences and inspirations when I was learning to play bluegrass banjo. It was a thrill to see him with Jim and Jesse at the University of Chicago Folk Festival in 1966, where he wowed the audience (and me) with his banjo prowess. Bending the Strings is a clever original piece by Shelton, and one that involves the use of Keith/Scruggs tuners. I read somewhere that he wrote it when he was a teenager, an indication of how talented he was. I have tabbed it so you can play it without D tuners, although I have indicated above the tab the proper moves if you have tuners. The first break resembles the way Shelton played BTS, but it is not note-for-note. The second break is reminiscent of Bill Keith's version and includes some neat ideas. You can find Keith's recording of it on his 1992 CD "Beating Around the Bush," which should be in every bluegrass banjo player's collection.

Notes: This jaunty little original tune is for my fourth grandchild, wee Bern, who is named after my grandfather. It started out as a simple warmup exercise and, without my planning it, morphed into a recognizable tune. I normally play it AAB, and I have provided two versions of the B part for some variety.

Notes: On 14 February 1962, the Osborne Brothers recorded Big Ben (with drums!), an instrumental written by their guitar player, Benny Birchfield. Sonny Osborne and Birchfield played twin banjos on the opening and closing breaks, and each took a solo break as well, of course interspersed with mandolin breaks by Bobby Osborne -- but I can report that there were no drum breaks. My arrangement captures the feel of the original recording, without attempting to be note-for-note, and without the mandolin breaks.

I included chords for your guitar buddy, now you need to find someone to bow the bass fiddle or play along with the album.

Notes: Here is my version of a classic tune by Bill Monroe and Kenny Baker, normally played in the key of A (capoed up two). The breaks involve a judicious mixture of Scruggs and melodic playing. Pay particular attention to the third break, in which I attempt to capture the feel of Kenny Baker's approach to the tune on the fiddle. Ah, Kenny Baker.

Notes: Tabbed out the intro the way Noam plays it. I've included the right hand fingerwork on important passages, which makes it playable. Not for the fainthearted. Lots of index-finger-above-the-thumb picking. NOTE: I can't get a 5th string capo in GP6, so add 2 frets on the 5th string in the tab. Update 7/13/14: Small update.

Notes: My take on Pikelny's first break on Big Sandy River -- you know, the easy one -- from "Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe." I emphasize that there are multiple ways to play the same notes, especially on the up-the-neck parts, and I may not have captured the exact way he plays it. This is an exceptionally difficult piece played at a blistering tempo. So buckle up your seat belts. As for his other breaks to BSR: Well, you're on your own. Good luck

Notes: My version is not exactly entirely faithful to the melody. Its saving grace is that it employs a number of my standard licks and hence is, for me at least, relatively easy to play.

Notes: My arrangement of this popular fiddle tune. Influenced by several sources. I don't include fingering because in most case it's obvious and I assume anyone who plays melodics has their preferred ways of getting at the basic formations that come up in this arrangement. I will note that there's some use of middle finger on 2nd string, usually at the top end of a forward roll. In measure 19, for the 3-note backward roll starting on 2nd string I actually use my index finger for both 2nd and 3rd strings. It's non-conventional, but it works for me, especially at the moderate tempo of this tune. You're free to use middle on 2nd for a true 3-finger backward roll, as Tony Trischka and Bela Fleck would. Thank you to Hangout member Sam Parks for letting me use the guitar, mandolin and bass tracks from his TablEdit file. Saved me a lot of time.

Notes: Does the world really need yet another recipe for boiled cabbage? Probably not, but this one offers two versions. The first has a tiny hint of "old time" to it; the second is entirely rolls and, if nothing else, is good for practice. Or you can mix and match them, a bar or two here and there, and see what you come up with. Makes a good "second tune", after "Arkansas Traveler".

Notes: Another version of Bill Cheatham inflicted on the tab archive? Oh, the humanity! Well, this is the way I play it, and perhaps its saving grace is found in the second break, which includes some interesting melodic sequences I heard on a concert tape (recorded at the Birchmere, to be precise) of Bela Fleck when he was with Spectrum. It is tabbed in G, but you probably should capo up 2 to play it in the key of A.

Notes: Tuning gEADE I have made a minor change in the way I play the tune, since my 1978 tab was published. I now play the first two notes as a drop thumb, index on open 1st string, to thumb while fingering the 4th fret on the 2nd string. This change is also at the end of the 4th measure where the phrase repeats. I hope you all will not have trouble with the old Banjo Newsletter tab form in which the numbers appear in the spaces. In my tab, I've corrected the incorrect tuning, in that it was printed backwards in the Banjo Newsletter in 6/78.

Notes: This tune was written by the great Don Stover. I always wanted to play it and then one day I was fooling around and it started to come to me. When I listen to Don's recording on "Things In Life" he plays at lighting speed. It's in G tuning but in the key of c (use C shapes).

Notes: The classic show-piece for fiddle, "Black Mountain Blues/Rag" arranged here for Scruggs/Reno style banjo (capo 2). This piece is difficult at a medium tempo, let alone the burning fast velocity it sounds best (in my opinion) at. The 2nd chorus is an example of Don Reno's continuous roll pattern, which is a forward roll with no breaks until the end of the chorus. Thus it sounds almost too syncopated, and the timing is down with a lot of pull-offs & hammer-ons. I have experimented with a triple pull-off á la Don's "Green Mountain Hop", (which is this same piece albeit in the key of D), to imitate the "crazy" fiddle part (you have to hear the tune to know what I'm talking about). Needless to say it's quite difficult at any tempo! There are a few small single string parts in the first two A sections, which are kinda difficult to pull off cleanly. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track, as well as a guitar kick-off. Have fun!

Notes: Black Soul Choir by 16 Horsepower. It's based on the live performances found on youtube by David Eugene Edwards, thus altered a bit from the original album track in the chorus section. David plays a two fingered "thumb lead" style, with index finger on the bright D string and thumb for the rest. I really don't know the name for this:/ I haven't copyrighted it in any way, feel free to distribute it, be nice and put in a nice word for me if you do;)

Notes: A backup that works nicely for Blackberry Blossom--has a descending bassline with pinches. If you like it you may like my banjo blog at www.banjohomeplace.blogspot.com

Notes: I thought it would be fun to come up with a jiggy 6/8 arrangement for Blackberry Blossom, the well-known fiddle tune. This has some interesting ornamentation in the B part, as well. Enjoy!

Notes: This is an arrangement of the tune that I've conjured up myself, designed to be more of an exercise than anything, but nevertheless, fun to play and enjoyable to listen to. It begins in G just like normal, but then changes keys to Eb for a verse, then to Bb for a verse, and then back to G. All in open tuning. Enjoy!

Notes: I've put in some fretting-hand fingerings, which I don't normally do. This one is tricky. It's not Old Time, and it's not exactly Bluegrass. But it is a melody, the way I hear and feel it, as a waltz and as a slow air (with rubato). I have added optional fermatas, but these only come into play when one is slowing it way down (not as the country waltz).

Notes: The first elegant melodic break to BB I heard was by Bill Keith on the Zap Records LP “Dobro and Fiddle,” by Kenny Haddock and Billy Baker (one of Monroe’s former fiddlers), released in 1967. He subsequently recorded it with the supergroup Muleskinner, in 1973. Bill’s breaks were delightful and stayed close to the melody, unlike the excursions into banjo noise practised by many of his successors, and they were played at breakneck knuckle-busting speed. For an example of the cleverness of his break, note how he used ascending scales in the first run-through of the A part and then descending scales in the second run-through. Brilliant. Catch the video of Muleskinner on youtube.com, to see a young and bearded Bill Keith playing some outstanding banjo on BB and a bunch of other tunes. The tab I have posted here is pretty close to the way I hear Bill playing it, and I give you two of his endings, the first from the Billy Baker recording and the second from Muleskinner. Note that the backup chord structure can be complex as in the tab and Muleskinner recording, or simple as in the Billy Baker recording. Either way it’s a great tune.

Notes: This version of Garfield's Blackberry Blossom is unique, though is supposedly related to West Virginia/Kentucky fiddler Ed Haley's recorded version. The source recording by Dick Burnett is in the Milliner-Koken American Fiddle Tunes Book, therefore is also in the Slippery Hill website.

Notes: Blackberry Blossom rearranged to the 6/8 jig rhythm. Bare bones version, strictly following the original melody - usually one of four notes is omitted (I hope I've made the right choices). Just look at the sheet music. The selection of the last D note (low or high) depends on whether you are returning to the same section or continuing to the next one.

Notes: Someone wanted a clawhammer version of this song so I made this arrangement which stays pretty true to the version the Beatles play but in C instead of G (easier to play faithfully on the banjo). It's a banjo version of the guitar part, no melody and since it is a duet with guitar and voice, I didn't indicate the chords. I based it on the original recording from the "white album" which is really titled The Beatles, can't find it on the internet...buy the album, you won't be sorry.

Notes: This is banjo - guitar duet of Paul McCartney's Blackbird. The guitar is from Paul's playing. The interesting is that he uses only 2-finger chords, fretting mostly the second and the fifth string, and uses the open third string as a kind drone. The banjo is a relatively simple 3-finger with mixed forward and backward rolls to match the rhythm of the guitar.

Notes: Scruggs's break to BRCH is one of his classics. In its deceptive simplicity and elegance it ranks up there with his break to "No Mother or Dad," in my opinion -- it is a break in which he really plays the words. The first break by Scruggs is my attempt to capture his recorded version with Lester Flatt, and the second break is an amalgam of variations I have heard on various radio and concert recordings by Flatt and Scruggs. The next 2 breaks are my own, with some elements based on Bill Keith's playing. Flatt and Scruggs recorded BRCH in B flat; so capo up 3 if you want to play along with the recording.

Notes: This Tune also known as "Spanish Eyes" or "Moon over Naples". Uploaded for the Mariachi Thread started on May 5, (Cinco Di Mayo). Please advise if you see any errors as I only had a chord chart and my ears to go by. The timing may be a little strange in order to keep the Mariachi feel. Thank You Mirek for assisting with this.

Notes: This unusual version of "Bonaparte's Retreat" comes from Melvin Wine. Unlike other versions, it is in 6/8 time as a jig. Also has an unusual variant of G tuning (gBGBD) capoed at 2nd fret for the key of A (aC#AC#E). Melvin's father wouldn't let him touch his fiddle, but Melvin would play it while his father was away from the house. This is the first tune Melvin played for his father and that convinced him to let young Melvin continue to play his fiddle. Thanks to Carl Baron for clearing up many things about this arrangement. You can Melvin play this tune at Slippery Hill or Bearea archives.

Notes: The trad oldtime version of Bonaparte's Retreat with tabs and recordings for two octaves. The low A part uses a lot of left hand ornamentation, so some may find the high A part easier. For the B part the roles reverse. The high B part requires playing and staying up around the 10th fret compared to the low B part which never leaves first position. For this reason the easiest way to start with the tune is probably mixing the octaves. I’ve included a tab with this mixed configuration along with the tabs that stick to their octaves. No matter what octaves you choose, I recommend trying to stick pretty firmly to a bum-dit-ty pattern with a brush in the “dit.” This tune traditionally used a lot of drones and keeping the patter will help give that impression despite the short sustain of the banjo.

Notes: Here's a tab for William H. Stepp's 1937 version of Bonaparte's Retreat. It's rather different from the older version, being much faster and having an altered melodic structure, but the link is evident with some study and playing it sure is fun. To play the Stepp version on banjo one must use almost exclusively hammer-ons and pull-offs as the tune is a barrage of eighth notes alternating up and down the scale. With some practice it is doable, but it may take a while to get it up to speed. The A part is always the same, sans ornamentation, but there are two versions of the B part. The melodies are the same they are in different octaves (both in first position though). The traditional way of playing it is to play the low B on the first and the high B on the second. Repeat this cycle to the end of the tune.

Notes: Bound for Jasper emerged on a recent long drive home from Canada’s magnificent West Coast, with an overnight stop in Jasper National Park, Alberta. The B Part employs what I have called the “staircase” roll, learned from the playing of Don Stover. As you will see, the structure of the tune is AAB. I dedicate BfJ to the memory of my dear friend Dr. Neil Cowie – anesthesiologist, storyteller, banjo player – who died on 18 June 2016. Goodbye, Old Pal.

Notes: Great tune by Tom Adams. It's hard for me because of the single string work, but well worth the effort.

Notes: This was composed by Adrian Leroy, whose years were 1520 - 1598. The tuning, gDGBE capoed at the 5th fret, gives you the same tuning as the Renaissance guitar, the instrument it was written for. Of course we have the added advantage of the fifth string, which I used a lot here (see bars 10, 12, and 27). Enjoy!

Notes: Dock Boggs' "Bright Sunny South" from his Folkways recordings. Very easy to play for any old time banjo pickers, with "two fingers & a thumb" (as Dock said). I have the tab in f#–C#–F#–B–C# tuning, which is the actual tuning Dock used, just G-modal down a half step

Notes: "Bright Sunny South," based on the version by Dock Boggs, but presented here in thumb lead 2 finger picking style. I included the right hand fingering for the first part of the tune. Basically, the index finger plays the 1st string, and the thumb plays all others. My version of this tune is constantly changing. I use variations of this style through different verses, sometimes even including thumb/index pinched notes rather than rolls. The tuning is gDGCD.

Notes: Brimstone Rock by 16 Horsepower. Tab consists of bits and pieces of the song. As they differ a lot throughout the song I thought it better to tab out the different pieces separately. Make your own variations and mix it up a bit :) Its a great song, especially the intro part, Have fun with it!

Notes: This is open G capoed at the 2nd fret to give you aEAC#E. The tune is a polka and is very commonly played at Irish sessions and is a pretty easy one for beginners. You do have to be able to do drop thumbing.
