Notes: This is an attempt to play Simon&Garfunkel's old hit. I started to work on this tune in the 1970's and at last I think I have come to something that can be presented for others. This arrangement is basically for a sole banjo where I have tried to pick up a little of the rhythm and of the harmonies in the song. I added a rather simple guitar accompaniment, mostly on the bass strings to give the right rhythm. The melody notes are to a large extend played by I/M pinches, where the melody note is played on the first string (middle finger) and the index plays a supporting harmony note below the melody note.

Really nice arrangement janolov. That brings back memories for sure. Now if I could only sing like Art Garfunkel but that's not going to happen.
