Notes: There are some terrific versions of John Hardy out there in different tunings. I am thinking of Eric Weissberg's version on "Folk Banjo Styles," an Elektra LP from 1961. Alan Munde also a very interesting version that Lee Marcus has provided a tablature for on BHO. My version is in good ole G tuning, the default tuning of bluegrass banjo. I have included 4 breaks. The B part on several of them is challenging and will require some work. Altogether, there is probably more variation here than I would use on stage or in a jam, and I include it just to show you the possibilities. One aspect to note is that melody notes on the high break (# 3) are played on the first string with the middle finger. This may seem counter-intuitive, but it works.
