Banjo Hell Tune

Genre: Old Time  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: D  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by Don Borchelt, updated: 4/17/2013
Download: TABLEDIT | PDF | MIDI [Play] [Download]

Notes: This is a tune by Jim Reed, one of the BHO's most talented pickers and contributors. Banjo Hell is the name of our campsite at the Appalachian String Band Festival held every summer at Clifftop, West Virginia. I tabbed this out based upon a recorded performance from Jim's CD, Jim Reed, Family and Friends. Jim's banjo is tuned f#DGAD, a tuning that Dock Boggs used once in awhile. I have also seen Jim play this tune with the banjo tuned aDGAD. He never picks anything twice the same way.

Good tune to play around with. My gripe is that when I try to save the Tabledit file, my PC comes back and says that it cannot because it is Password Protected File. What is up with that guy. It is not my computer because I just downloaded the next song in the Newest Additions list and saved it just fine.

I just had to look Don. I just love this tune and how cool Jim picks it. The MP3 of you, Jim, and Don playing it is just Awesome. I've been trying to pick along with you guys. Thanks
