Notes: Two of my favorite banjo pickers recorded Jamboree, Doug Dillard on “The Banjo Album” (1970) and Butch Robins on “Grounded-Centered-Focused” (1995). Both credit the tune to Andrew Welling, who is the composer of the music for many movies. Doug’s version is a bit frantic and repetitive, whereas Butch’s is more coherent, approachable, and interesting IMHO. You could say it is more grounded, centered, and focused. My tab is not intended to be a note-for-note transcription of Butch’s recording, but I did try to capture a bit of the spirit of his version. The trickiest bit is the right-hand fingering in the passing chords in the B part, and I have tabbed out the fingering I use to pick the strings in that section. If you find a way to play the section that is easier for you, however, go for it. Butch recorded it in the key of Bb, but I have posted it in the key of G.
