Notes: "Drunkard's Lone Child," based on the playing of Dock Boggs. This song makes use of a 3 finger up picking style. The banjo follows the vocal melody. The thumb plays notes on the 3rd, 4th, and drone strings while the index and middle fingers play the 2nd and 1st strings, respectively. My version follows Boggs' 1963 recording, where he plays the initial verse a little differently from the rest. I have offered both ways in the tablature. The tab here is a basic outline, but in actual practice many liberties may be taken and variations played. I improvise a little when I play this, and I play with timing quite a bit, as Boggs often did. The tuning is f#CGAD.
