Download: PDF | GUITAR-PRO 5 | MIDI [Play] [Download]

Notes: A tab of David Eugene Edwards style of playing wayfaring stranger, based on a video of him playing it on youtube (link in tab). I've just made a straight-forward tab, and to make it simpler/smaller, I've just tabbed one variation of the verse, and used it throughout the song. In the video David plays it a little different each verse, as usual. I would recommend listening to his version of the song to find variations that you might want to use when playing this yourself. It might seem like a lot of stuff is going on in the tab since I've put in a few "ghost notes". This is just to hint that you don't have to play it note by note like a scholar. David plays a kind of two-finger thumb-lead, and the thumb brushes nearby strings now and again :) As usual it sounds quite rigid in guitar pro, but should come out fairly accurate on the banjo. Let me know if you like it or not, any feedback is welcome, feel free to comment!

by the way, do you know which tuning he plays on the album version? It seems to be some other tuning I can't figure out.

I'll see if I can figure it out, but I usually do best with a video and not all by ear :)
