Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/25/2011

Notes: This is a tune that I give to beginners for practice on the square (thumb in and out) roll. I learned it from Grampa Jones, but have also heard it done by Jim Kweskin. Google the words.

Notes: This is an old familiar tune by Lead Belly. I missed the C measure before the A measure and added it after. Sorry about the inconvenience.

I Walk The Line

Genre: Country  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 9/3/2012
Download: JPEG

Notes: I hope this is readable. I just wrote it out and photographed the tab on the kitchen table. The 5th string doesn't sound too good in the D section against the D chord, so I avoided it. If you want to add it, play it very softly. I'm not sure what 2 keys Johnny used, but it definitely needs a key change of some sort. The site will only allow me to put one key, but I've given you both G and D.

Little Sadie

Genre: Old Time  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: G  Tuning: Sawmill (gDGCD)  
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/25/2011
- Download from banjohangout.org

Notes: Learned from Doc Watson's guitar playing

Old Molly Hare

Genre: Old Time  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: D  Tuning: Double C (gCGCD)  
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/24/2011
- Download from banjohangout.org

Notes: This should be capo II or tuned up to aDADE in order to play with a fiddle.

Shebeg & Shemore (sp?)

Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: D  Tuning: Double C (gCGCD)  
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/24/2011
- Download from banjohangout.org

Notes: Here's an Irish tune that I discovered while messing with double C tuning. Usually played in D, so get out your capo. Sometimes attributed to O'Carolin and sometimes to P.D.

The Butcher's Row/ The Old Man & The Old Woman

Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/24/2011
- Download from banjohangout.org

Notes: Two tunes often played by Don Messer and learned from a book of his favourite fiddle tunes.

Two English Jigs

Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/24/2011
- Download from banjohangout.org

Notes: Laudenum Bunches / The Perfect Cure - Two English Jigs learned from Robin Williams' Oak publication English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh Fiddle Tunes. While these are played 3-finger style, it isn't really Scruggs-style, more melodic.

Two English Jigs - Chords

Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish  Style: Unknown/None Chosen  
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/24/2011
- Download from banjohangout.org

Notes: Laudenum Bunches / The Perfect Cure - The chords change very quickly in these jigs, so I've put them in a separate post to avoid cluttering the tab.

Weave & Way

Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/24/2011
- Download from banjohangout.org

Notes: Learned from Norman Blake's first solo album Home In Sulpher Springs. Norman and Tut Taylor play it as a guitar/Dobro duet. Norman says,"Probably an old Scotch (sic) tune." I've included a harmony line inspired by Tut Taylor's Dobro.

Weave & Way back-up

Notes: This is a sample of what I might play behind a melody instrument.

What A Friend We Have In Jesus

Genre: Old Time  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  
Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/25/2011 - 1 Member Comments
- Download from banjohangout.org

Notes: This old hymn was written by Port Hope resident Joseph Scriven. They recently refurbished the monument to him in the town park and had a Joseph Scriven Day celebration. Our jug bandwas invited to play one song, but since George Hamilton IV got dibbs on this song, we did Denomination Blues.

When You And I Were Young Maggie back-up

Posted by Jim Yates, updated: 1/23/2011

Notes: Tabbed at the request of one of my students. There are two versions here. I forget why I put the asterix in there, but it probably indicates that these two lines are almost the same thing, just found at different places on the fingerboard.
