Notes: Are You Missing Me is a fine bluegrass standard, written by Ira Louvin and associated with Jim and Jesse. I have tabbed 3 breaks. Note the long tag at the end of the first break; I think I first heard it (or something like it) played by Bobby Thompson. The final D measures at the end of the second break feature one of my original D runs, and you might find it useful. The third break includes some melodic sequences that you can plug into a variety of tunes. Note added in April 2020: I originally posted this tablature several years ago, and I have now corrected some errors and added a bass track.

Do you have a sound file or video to go along with this? Thanks for posting!

Go to my page on BHO and click on "Media." You will find an audio recording of me and my friends playing the song, with the banjo breaks overlapping to some extent with my breaks in the tablature. The recording is from 2007, and it's noteworthy that I was playing an original prewar flathead 5-string Gibson Granada, borrowed for the occasion.
