Thanks! These are based on the sheet music. I could try writing some tabs for them if you would like? It would be a chance for me to learn how to use a tab package.

I'm fine with printed notes...but the interesting thing with tab is seeing how you fingered it, what tuning, etc. I'm guessing the sheet music was not originally for banjo...?

Ok, I'll try writing them out in the next couple of days. The sheet music was from a mix of fiddle and Northumbrian pipe tune books. They're all in standard G tuning.

Really nice. I just can't get jigs up to speed. Drop thumb does something funny for me in 3/4 or 6/8, and I can't fathom why.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Andy. I have to pause and kind of reset my brain before and after playing jigs. Its almost like switching instruments.

I am happy to proofread them for you. :)

I just posted tabs for all three of these. This is the first time I've posted any tabs here, so I'd be very happy for any feedback on how you find them, and any other info that would be useful to include. I used Musescore, as I'm on Linux. It seems like a really good package, lots of great features for writing out sheet music, but also a built-in template for 5 string banjo tab, and it outputs midi files as well (which I've included). I probably looks a little different to the Tabedit tabs.
