Notes: This tab and midi file is a triple rendering of Breaking Up Christmas meant to compare and contrast "Round Peak" clawhammer banjo with other ways of playing the tune. This first rendition is melodic, almost note for note as Tommy Jarrell fiddled. The second rendition is "Round Peak" based on the banjo playing of Fred Cockerham and others. The third rendition is basic clawhammer (but not "Round Peak" and not "melodic") based on the playing of Hilarie Burhans. NOTE: the tab (pdf) comprises two pages. They should be laid side-by-side for viewing so that all the tabs line up properly. The tabs are arranged on the pages so that you can compare each measure in the three versions note-for-note.
