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

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: This is an attempt to play Simon&Garfunkel's old hit. I started to work on this tune in the 1970's and at last I think I have come to something that can be presented for others. This arrangement is basically for a sole banjo where I have tried to pick up a little of the rhythm and of the harmonies in the song. I added a rather simple guitar accompaniment, mostly on the bass strings to give the right rhythm. The melody notes are to a large extend played by I/M pinches, where the melody note is played on the first string (middle finger) and the index plays a supporting harmony note below the melody note.

Notes: This arrangement of the classic song by John Hartford is based on a video by Mike Iverson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OF7ZecJyvic. (Cut and paste the link into a browser.) Mike plays the song in B (capo 4), but this tab is in open G. This tab uses a lot of syncopation via m-skips (or ghost strokes followed by drop thumb). Mike is a talented and generous performer and teacher who offers lessons and workshops in Utah and online: www.banjoutah.com.

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!

Notes: I think Elvis sang it in Bflat but here I've tabbed it in C with standard open G tuning. I think a beginner can handle this. (I consider myself a beginner). I'm including 3 files: 1. A tabledit tef file (include lyrics to first verse) 2. PDF tab (includes lyrics to first verse) 3. PDF Lyrics with chords I think the melody is easy to pick out so I think you could modify this to any style of playing easily.

Notes: Pretty straightforward. The only comment I would make is that the 8th notes directly after the 8th rests should be played with the thumb (i.e. drop thumb). All the other notes follow the basic bum-ditty intuition in terms of forefinger and thumb use.

Notes: Tossed out this morning in response to a request for it. Largely melodic style Errors may and probably are included, and there may be easier ways to play it than written here. 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 a clawhammer version of the film song "Never On A Sunday" from 1960. I have tried to make clawhammer interpretations of the Bouzouki parts (intro and ending) based on the bouzouki playing but adapted to clawhammer banjo. Sometimes there is a break in the middle, and the intro or ending may be used for the break too.

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: An old standard, covered by the Country Gentlemen (Eddie Adcock) and before them, Les Paul. I tried to incorporate some of the iconic (to me) parts, whether it be Waller's chromatic guitar riff, Duffy's opening mando notes and quasi-bendy thing, Adcock's single string work, or Ben Eldridge's Scruggsy break. There is also a scalar descending thing from Bela, some of my own musings, and Les Paul's dramatic ending. Have fun with it, and make it your own!

Notes: Here's my version of the 7th inning stretch classic written in the back of the Fergus Falls, MN Hospice Volunteers bus on our way to Target Field to be recognized at the Harmon Killebrew Hospice game. In deference to the memory of Harmon's batting skills, I tried to put some swing into the tune by playing it in 4/4 rather than the usual 3/4.

Notes: A little bit of tricky right-hand fingering, but nothing to worry about. The tune is supposed to repeat into itself then start again in the key of "A" -- I've so far been unable to work out how to do that without stopping and whacking a capo on the second fret! Any imput/suggestions welcome!

Notes: This arrangement is mostly clawhammer, although the Intro and Interlude are played in a rudimentary 3F style (indicated on tab). Letters above the tablature lines indicate chords. This is set in the key of C, but played in the standard G tuning.

Notes: Great tune, with a few tricky-ish chokes and more than 3 chords! ** Additional note [Xmas 2020] ** I wrote the original tab for this in 2006 when I hadn't been playing long. It consequently had a few fingering errors, so I have just updated it, making it easier to finger, hopefully without losing any of the essence of the tune. I have made a short video of it, which you can view on this site or via YouTube here: https://youtu.be/NBCP3B_Elbw

Notes: This clawhammer tab is based on the cover of the Tom Petty song, "Wildflowers," by the Wailin' Jennys. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XhVILjWkNg )The level is beginner/intermediate. They play the tune in the key of B, using open-G tuning (gDGBD) capoed to the 4th fret. I indicate the chord shapes for G tuning. The actual chords for G, C and D7 capoed would be B, E and F#7. This tab is based on the banjo introduction and can be used to back up the vocal, though strumming chords works as well. The mid-song instrumental breaks follow a different pattern.

Notes: This is a tune I picked up within the last 20 years and came up with an ever-evolving banjo version. I never tried to emulate any particular version of this tune nor have I tried to emulate a drop-thumb approach. My brain doesn't work like that. My approach is to simply play the tune in a Scruggs-based style which works just fine. In writing this tab I realized that I rarely play the tune the same way twice and pull from a body of licks on-the-fly as I play it. So, in this tab you will see I offer several variations for the same phrases which appear throughout the tune. This is a fun tune to play and I've noticed over the years that it's becoming more commonplace, part of a growing shared repertoire at jams and get-togethers.
