The only one I have figured out so far is Wagon Wheel. Its basically just rolls on G, D, Em, C and then G, D, C. If you listen to the song you will hear the chord changes. Let me know if you get any others.

We play Wagon Wheel at our jam. If you can play G,C D and Em chords various places on the neck, you will find the melody.

Note that the chord progression is almost identical to the Beatle's Let It Be so you can do that song, too.

[G]Rock me mama like a [D]Wagon Wheel
[Em]Rock me mama any [C]way you feel
[G] Hey [D] ..Mama [C] Rock me ......

G / D / Em / C / G / D / C / / /

Let It Be goes back to the G at the end and the chorus starts on an Em
Let it [Em] Let it [D]be lit it [C] oh let it [G]be
[G]There will be an [D]answer Let it [C] be dum dum [G]dum

what roll do you use for those chords in wagon wheel?

Banjoman - Posted - 01/25/2009:  17:23:55


Picking since 1964

...Bobby Thompson? He is the future! He has this whole new style-you can hear the melody! ''Hard Hearted'' ''Dixie Hoedown!'' Oh my!---John Updike

They're great in concert. I have some chords for some of their songs. "Raise a Ruckus", is G C G D for the chorus, and G D G for the verse. It's not banjo tab, but the chords for some of their songs are at ultimate guitar.
