So...are you looking for sheet music(standard notation) or banjo tablature?

I am looking for banjo tablature

I am newer to this site and not exactly sure how to navigate it

If you can play it in G, you could retune a banjo to open D and play like you would in G. That's what I do. You can do it with heavy strings on a standard banjo.

How does he tune it to open d?

There's a beginner tab in the tab archives for Away in a Manager. It's in the key of G. Would that work? Does it HAVE to be in the key of D? If so, perhaps someone could transpose it from G to D for you. Go here:

I don't find any tab for Go Tell it on the Mountain.

And, I'm moving your thread from the bluegrass forum to the tab forum where it belongs.

We have a massive list of tabs for banjo in the tab archives and all our tabs are FREE. You will, however, need the proper software to download, play and print some of the tabs. Most of the software will be aware here: , just scroll to the appropriate software and download. Most downloads are also free (at least for the demo models).

Feel free to peruse our tab archives and download/print those you need. Tab archives are located on the left hand side of the page. Under Learn click on banjo tab library and then either type in the name of the tab in the search window or search alphabetically.

Thank you! I’m learning the site!

What style of playing would you prefer? Scruggs? Clawhammer? Just chords? Specifying the style you prefer may help someone help you.

Here are the strings I used to tune down to open "D" on a standard banjo:
"John Pearse 1950D John Hartford, D-Tuning, 5-String Banjo Strings"
I know Elderly music carries them.

Tuning is :
d A D F# A
