Notes: "Old 1812" is a fife tune used in the sound track of the movie "The Outlaw Josey Wales". From what I've read it's based on a Revolutionary War piece entitled "Welcome Here Again". This has been transcribed from the key of D to G to better utilize standard banjo tuning. The large Roman numerals alert the player to fretboard position while the smaller numerals directly above the tab suggest left hand fingering. Right hand fingering is suggested as "t","i","m".
