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.

Blackbird (3-finger and guitar) - Paul McCartney

Posted by janolov, updated: 1/18/2012
Download: TABLEDIT | PDF

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.

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: Here is a well known pop tune from the teens by George Cohan, "Give My Regards To Broadway". I have it arranged here in the key I found in a book of piano tunes, and it is a good key for the tune. Has a whole lot of inside, square (un-syncopated) rolls. Has a single string lick, and the ending is a great Don Reno "rake" ending, used on such tunes as his (Rural Rhythm) recording of "Limehouse Blues". Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Note: in segments like Measure 14, where you see the fourth, third, second and first string played sequentially, the way to handle that is with a square roll (T-I-T-M).

Notes: This is the arrangement featured on The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie soundtrack. It can either be played in 3-finger style, or flatpicked (if you're proficient with a flat pick, that is). The tuning is Open Cm (c C G C Eb); the fifth string is tuned to a high-C note (you'll need a fifth-string capo to achieve this pitch). There are two midis provide. The first midi gives you the sound of each string in the Cm tuning. The second midi follows the tab note for note.

Notes: This is from the Muppet Show where my friend Kermit is singing the tune. Rainbow Connection is a tricky tune because it has a key change in the middle, where the orginal key is raised a halt tone. Here the tune starts in C major but in the second half there is a raise to Db major or C#major. I think the original goes in A major and raises to Bb major.

Notes: This is a clawhammer version of Beatles' Yesterday. It should be played rather fast, but softly and sweetly without drive. The arrangement contains some drop thumbs and Alternate String Pull Off, but these can be skipped if you think it too advanced.

Notes: This banjo arrangement is based on the bouzouki playing by Mikis Theodorakis' original version in the film, and is more or less a straight transcription. I have added a simple guitar accompaniment.
