I don't know if you all have noticed but recently Jack Baker has been releasing tons of great tabs and tabledit songs on the hangout. He has been releasing much stuff by Scruggs and also Reno and Crowe! Jack announced a bit ago that he would be doing this as he is cutting back on his teaching and he wanted his work left in a place where it can be used. This is a kind kind gesture and will benefit many of us. So keep an eye out for what he is putting out there and the community should give him a good round of applause and thanks.

Thank you Jack!

Ken

btw, Matt helped me get my tabledit updated and all is loud and clear now.

Yeah, Thanks Folks.
With this crisis on our hands, I'm pretty much forced into early retirement as no one in their right mind would go out too much. I retired from NYU a year ago and hoped to go on for another few years privately but that has pretty much ended. I'm teaching a few of my students in NYC via Zoom or Skype but that's about it. I'm now only at my home in NJ. 
I don't want all of my tabs to end up on an inactive website so I'll try to post them here as much as time permits.
A lot of my tabs are re-dos from Hans Holzherr who is a great tabber from abroad.  Mick G is a fantastic tabber in the Scruggs or any other style too. There are other new contributors now entering BHO and that's so great...
Eli Gilbert's videos are tremendous and he's posting a lot of really good beginning to advanced tabs. I love watching and learning from them...
So be careful and stay safe and try to stay away from people who are careless in this really dangerous time....See ya later folks...Jack

Yep,I never use them for learning a song,but like to noodle thru just to see how it was done. A tab of an actual performance is the only one proven to be'' possible''. Earl once said a backward roll was difficult. A computerized tab player does not know that so it can sound better than possible.Jack put forth proven tabs.

Just a thought jack. Get them published in book form and sell? The laborer is worth his wages.

Too many of the Pros now advertising and posting on here to do that. Be a waste of time and money. Thanks Gary

Hi Gary,
Thanks for the kind post. It is wonderful that people like Eli, Bill Evans etc.are giving to freely to BHO. I really don't think publishing a book would do me any good at all. They are already out there by the best in the world. 
What I am getting is more and more People who want Zoom lessons and that is all I want any more because I am working on other Guitar projects because  I believe that banjo is well covered now and doesn't need yet another book...Thanks for caring Gary...Jack

Kudos for your generosity, Jack!
I've always admired your transcriptions; they're some of the best ever, I think.

It's guys like you who are keeping the banjo alive and thriving.

Who among us doesn't play for the love of the banjo foremost? The 5-string banjo is a confoundingly difficult instrument to learn and to play well.

Beginners seldom know that when they decide to learn how to play the 5-string, they'll have to learn where to find the music for it, who to listen to, and all the other things no one ever tells them about.
It's a separate musical universe all its own. Without a willing guide, lots of beginners never get anywhere. Thanks for being such a good guide.
regards,
stanger
