Years ago when I first uploaded the tab for my original three-finger arrangement of The Lilting Banshee, Celtic banjo expert Tom Hanway asked why I didn't include picking hand fingering. My response was that I assumed players would have their own preferences. I acknowledged it would probably be instructional if I were to indicate fingering, especially where I've worked out some approaches that are non-intuitive but -- I believe -- more practical.

I finally had time to add fingering for the picking hand throughout and the fretting hand in several locations. Where I don't show fretting fingering it's usually because the section repeats a previous phrase, so the shape would be the same.

I tried to delete the old TEF, PDF and midi files, but as of this posting, the tab page shows they're still there.

I'll review my other Celtic tabs and update them with picking and fretting fingerings if I see spots where the choices might not be obvious or automatic.
