Lately I've been playing an original tune I call "Gimpy's Blues."
Decided to write out a basic TAB for each of the three main parts (below).
Here is a link to the audio.: http://www.banjohangout.org/…/media-play…/audio_player2.asp…
I hope you enjoy it!

Somebody's been working on their chord theory! Sounds awesome as usual...

John, you continue to do some innovative things with clawhammer. (It's appropriate that Mike Iverson has commented for that reason.) Very nice!

Mike - I deleted the duplicate posts. I wrote this one three or four years ago. Have taught a little - very basic - chord theory in some of my workshops at the Nashville Clawhammer camp. I decided to TAB this tune today - just in case I might want to teach it sometime. I'm fascinated with chords in clawhammer - although my knowledge is rudimentary at best. I have been lucky to spend a little time around good friends: Jim McLellan (a truly great plectrum banjo player in the style of Perry Bechtel) and Jack Pearson (world-class blues & jazz guitarist). Maybe a little bit is rubbing off on me (very little so far - I've just learned enough to know how ignorant I really am ;<)). I know you are way ahead of me in this department ...
David - Thanks. We need to get together next time I'm in Louisville
