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: I've had a go at arranging some of Bach's music on the banjo. I only have the demo version of TablEdit so I can only save 16 measures at a time, so it's not complete.

Notes: This version is edited from several different versions and combined using the simplest melodic fingering I could find. It is simple to play if you take each section and break it down to understand the pattern. Good luck and keep pickin'....peace

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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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: Big Ben is a great song that I have heard performed by Tony Trishka but could not find a tab for it. So, my teacher, Glenn Nelson and I came up with this arrangement. I hope you like it.

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.

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: Key of A................. no capo. I wanted to see how difficult it would be to play Bill Cheatham in open A--and It didn't go that bad at all ...but I made a few slight banjoistical (new word) :) changes from my original arrangement and added the backup instruments...... Hope you like it.................Lynn

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: My version of the Skillet Lickers Black-Eyed Susie. It's a work in progress, but sounds good to me, even if I'm not that proficient at it yet. Their version doesn't really follow any ABAB pattern, as such, but I do - I'm simple like that!

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: 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: 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: 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: This is a tune written by Turlough O'Carolan. Sounds nice on a banjo, but I prefer to use a Tenor guitar tuned Irish GDae. This recording is of a converted Flat top 6 string guitar to Tenor. I have 2 PDF files up: 1 in 2/4 and one I transcribed into 4/4.
Hope you enjoy

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: 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: 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: Capo 2. This is a basic Scruggs version of the frailing style heard on the 'Cherish the Ladies' CD. It is the same song sung by Andy Stewart as noted below: http://www.chivalry.com/cantaria/lyrics/broom-cowdenknowes.html Notes from Andy M. Stewart: This song is easily traceable back to the early seventeenth century where it appears in a small collection as "The Lovely Northerne Lass." Allan Ramsay also published a version in his "Tea Table Miscellany", during the 1720s. It is a moving tale of love, banishment and exile, supported by a very beautiful melody. Cowdenknowes is in Berwickshire, near to the village of Earlston, a place much associated with the 13th century poet and prophet, "Thomas The Rhymer". I got this song years ago, from my friend and neighbour, Archie Fisher. This example of "The Broom of the Cowdenknowes" is performed by Andy M. Stewart with Silly Wizard on the albums Wild and Beautiful and The Best of Silly Wizard, both available from the Chivalry Music store Please refer to Cantaria's Copyright information Copyright Information The purpose of Cantaria is to be an educational resource for aspiring bards and minstrels.

Notes: GuitarPro is squirrely about capoing the fifth. No matter what the tab says, this tune is played in standard tuning, capo 2, fifth string capoed 4. It shows the fifth string being fretted at the fourth, but it's not.

Notes: This is a Bill Monroe fiddle tune that I was inspired to play by hearing it off of the the Dreadful Snakes album Snakes Alive. The B section is a great exercise for single string playing out of that 'staircase' shape. Enjoy! Rick

Notes: Transcribed from Earl's rendition on Foggy Mountain Banjo. It's not exact, but I think it's extremely close. Includes solos and backup. I set the metronome pretty slow so I can play along. To play at Earl's speed, set the Tabledit tempo (CTRL-K or CMD-K) to 288.

Notes: According to thesession.org, this tune comes from the mid 1700s when England was actively stomping out the culture of the Scottish Highlands. Sheet music is available at http://thesession.org/tunes/ According to http://www.nigelgatherer.com/whistle/tut_8/8-4.html: "The English general Cumberland received the sobriquet 'Butcher' after the defeat of the Jacobite forces of Bonnie Prince Charlie at Culloden in 1746, such was the savagery of his reprisals and cruelty toward prisoners of the engagement. In the aftermath of the rising a series of laws were passed which aimed to suppress the Highland culture and break forever the power of the ancient clans in order to prevent any such rebellion from again happening. Thus, highland dress and the wearing of clan tartan was prohibited on pain of death, arms were banned, and, attesting to the power of traditional music to evoke emotion, pipers were outlawed. In fact, reports Williamson, the kilt continued to be prohibited until 1782, forcing the Highlanders to wear trews. Any clergyman who did not pray in church expressly for George of Hanover could be transported for life, and those who attended such services were liable to fine and imprisonment. This was in force till 1792. The Burning of the Piper's Hut probably refers to these times."

Notes: This is a nifty fiddle tune written by Tommy Jackson, the major session player on the fiddle in Nashville during the 1950s and 60s. The tune works really well on the banjo in a relatively painless melodic style. I first heard it played by Alan Munde under the title "Banjalin," on his 1977 album with Sam Bush (Together Again for the First Time). More recently I discovered an unreleased version by Bill Keith from around 1963. The first break is my own arrangement of Busy Fingers. The second break is similar to one of Alan Munde's.

Notes: Byss-Calle (his real name was Carl Bössa) lived around 1800 and he wrote several tunes for nyckelharpa (key harp or key fiddle). This is one of them - a socalled slängpolska which is a dance very popular from around 1700 - 1850. Slängpolska is in 3/4 but often built up of 1/16 notes.
