Are Banjo Newsletter Reprints Still Available? I'm looking for the December 1999 issue. If the full magazine is not available, are the tablatures still available? (I'm looking for "Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella.")

As a side note, I sincerely hope that BNL continues in some form. It was such a good publication and resource.

As always, thanks for your help.

When in doubt, go to the source to find out. Go the their website and ask if reprints are still available. They would know where most of us just would just have to guess.

I just went to and here's what I found about the December 1999 issue: Go here:

I did find the tab online.  I can't print it here, however, because they are selling it on their website.  If you have a subscription to BNL, you can download it from their site.

As a subscriber (I paid in June) I have access to the volumes that are on-line, and I could open the tab you asked for. So if you are a subscriber you should also be able to download the tab.

I did ask BNL, many years ago, whether it would be OK to share the tabs I'd written for them. They said it was OK. A few of them are already in the BHO tab library. Any body wishing for a list of all the tabs I wrote, can contact me directly or maybe you can probably look them up at the BNL site. I'll have to try that myself.

Just checked and some are listed under Carl Bacon rather than Carl Baron. There are only three listed at a cost of $2/each. None of my many others are listed under those two names. It may be because they switched how the tabs were written; originally between the lines and later on the lines.

Thanks to Sherry and others. I did go to the BNL website before I messaged the BHO forum. It's not clear whether BNL is "up and running" in any capacity as an "online" service. Of course, I might be missing something.

Here's what Donald Nitchie wrote last month about BNL in case you haven't read the article. Go here:

Unless they changed the arrangement(s) with the tabbers over the years, Hub told me way back when, that BNL paid the tabbers for their work to be published only ONE time in BNL and the rights to the tabs and/or articles would remain with the author. In other words, you can do with your own tabs whatever pleases you because you did not transfer ownership of your stuff.

If you'd want to do something with other people's tabs, or articles, then you'd have to come to an arrangement with the original authors of that material.
