Notes: Double C tuning, with a capo on the second fret, and the 5th string tuned to a (aDADE). Tune I wrote about one of my great-great-grandfathers, who was a whaler out of New Bedford and Nantucket. Give it a try, let me know what you think!

Notes: So I wrote this song while trying to learn 'drop-thumb'... It is a simple tune with 'drop-thumb' in about half of the measures. It is a good tune to learn on, in my opinion, and even if you can already drop that thumb, its a cute little tune. Try it out and tell me what you think!

If you want to hear how it sounds, check my video section. Oh yeah, enjoy! - Daniyel

Guido's Tune

Genre: Old Time  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: This tune is simple but catchy. I wrote if for my best friend, Guido (pronounced Gee-doh with a hard G). Its in open G, with a capo on the second fret (aEAC#E) and I classified it as 'intermediate' because it has a few instances of drop thumb, but its really pretty easy to play. If you make a recording, let me know! :) Daniyel

Notes: Here is a tab I worked out for this beautiful song; its prety simple, with the same 2 themes being repeated on different strings. Still, I tried to include the different themes in the tab, and labeled them. If you want to hear how it sounds, you can listen to my mp3, where I am playing with a capo on the first fret, and my 5th string tuned to g#. I hope the tab isn't confusing, but it should get you playing the song! Enjoy...

The song is in Double C tuning with a capo on the second fret, and the fifth string tuned up to 'a' - aDADE... Have fun with it, and let me know what you think! :)

Nadav and Avihu

Notes: Here is a tune I wrote, named after the Biblical Nadav and Avihu. Like their story, the tune has an eerie, haunting feeling to it. Its played out of aDADE, but it doesn't sound like it.... Please give it a try, and let me know what you think - feedback and comments are always welcome! You can hear it in my video section on my page... Enjoy!

Notes: I have been teaching myself to play banjo for several months now, and wrote this song as a present for my mother, Rebecca, for her birthday. It is a short and simple tune, not difficult to play. Please feel free to modify it, or improve upon it as you wish; I only ask that if you make any changes or modifications to the tune, that you send me a recording of it...Thanks and enjoy!

Notes: Another short tune I wrote, this one is also in Cumberland Gap tuning, a Sawmill tuning variation (gEADE). Its Sawmill with a capo on the second fret, but the fifth string stays at 'g'. There is a little bit of 'drop-thumb', but its a pretty simple little tune, sad but sweet. There is a video of me playing it if you want to hear it. Enjoy.

Notes: A simple tune I wrote, its in "Cumberland Gap" tuning, which is essentially Sawmill tuning with a capo on the second fret, and the fifth string remaining a 'g' - gEADE. It has some 'drop-thumb' but nothing too fancy. There is a video of me playing it, if you want to hear what it sounds like. Hope you like it!
