Notes: An attempt to tab something that was 'melodic clawhammer' - almost note for note what a fiddler would play - but also includes no drop thumb at all

Notes: The first half of the tab is the straight tune, and suitable for beginners; the second is my variation on it, which is more Intermediate in difficulty. I usually tune the banjo aEADE, which makes the tune more aeolian in A, though it is actually pentatonic

Notes: Traditional Shetland fiddle tune. Sawmill tuning EDAEa. You could make out an argument for this tune being in G, D or A! Double tonic in G and A is probably the best description.

Wayfaring Stranger (I am a Poor)

Genre: Traditional  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: A  Tuning: Sawmill (gDGCD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: Really pretty much beginner standard, apart from the brush-skips and chords. Not an easy key for most folk to sing in. The last 3 and a half bars are a bridge or coda, and not part of the original tune.
