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:

Martin, a superb arrangement of an old song thats been played from every direction. This may be the best version I've heard.

Martin what a fantastic arrangement. I play the Lee Marcus/Jack Baker arrangement which took me two years to learn I was inspired by BHO Member Jay Langston who posted a recording of himself playing T Waltz on his new Huber Lancaster. I had just started learning to play the banjo when I took on the task and it was a real challenge to work out the LH fingering. This one looks just as challenging. Hopefully it wont take me as long to master it. Thanks for sharing.

Martin, Thank you so much for taking the time to make and post the video of you playing the Tennessee Waltz. And updating your tablature for the Tennessee Waltz. I'm always amazed at the way musicians will stop and take the time to be so helpful to one another. I wish yourself, your family, and your friends a Happy Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year.
