Fun little discussion, I like to learn by ear and by watching others, but every once in a while, we all need a bit of help from some friends to learn a hard bit in a tune or to figure out an odd tuning etc...

So, which banjoists or albums etc etc do you wish were available in tablature?

At least there's one book for the Simple Pleasures album and maybe a couple songs in BNL over the years. 

And this tab of Cherokee Shuffle from The Great Dobro Sessions CD turns out to have been the parts played by Alison Brown. The A and B parts were played as separate solos.

But, yes, I agree with you. A big book of Alison would be great. I don't even want to play all the tunes so much as mine her playing for technique, licks and ideas.

I too would love to see Alison Brown's tabs. She is awesome. And the best Grascals songs with Kristin Scott Benson's tabs.

I would buy a spring bound tab book with material from a few hangout members. Abdul AB1, Rob Bourassa, Jimi Five, Simon Slick and the elderly gentleman with his wife on the bass.
Also a non member is the banjo picker from the moron brothers, far more entertaining to me than the famous names

Molsky’s Mountain Drifter’s (all instruments);Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves side by side Tabs and standard notation for the fiddle; Molly Tuttle guitar tabs because she’s a fine guitar player, and John Herrmann because he doesn’t get enough recognition.

And Adam Hurt for the obvious reasons.

I would appreciate having tabs for Sonny Osborne's more popular tunes. The tab would include the break(s) and the rhythm.

There are a quite a few out-of-print tab books I would like to have. Ron Block's book is one.

I like to figure stuff out on my own, but I also like to have some for reference as well. I wish there were two books. The first would be a book with all the breaks from Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe. And all the breaks from New Dimensions in Banjo and Bluegrass. I would love to add these to the two books of Tab that I own and love, Earl Scruggs and the 5 String Banjo, and  The Great American  Banjo Songbook by Alan Munde et al.

This thread could be a good start on such a book, maybe a Alison or Noam tune, any suggestions?

That would actually be the most educational on how to improvise on the banjo!

The Flatt and Scruggs Bear CD set with the tab also including Earls backup.laugh(Jack Hatfield and Tom Adams have done some of it).

or I would like to see, (to change the subject slightly) those records re-engineered (it that is possible) to bring Earl's backup to the forefront more so that all of it could be heard better.

How about a book about how not to rely on tab books?

With a big photo of an ear on the front cover? surprise wink

Seriously, using tab assumes the original transcriber got it right. A lot of the time they didn't.

We do ourselves a big favour if we train and trust our ears. And the careful listening and analysis involved in making our own transcriptions pays huge dividends in terms of understanding as well as being really satisfying.
