Here's a tab for an old pop tune that's typically associated with a tenor or plectrum, but it also works well for Scruggs style on a 5-string.

Thanks Wayne. Alan Munde did this somewhere.

Yes,
A long time ago Alan arranged a great version of this fun tune. It was released sometime around 2018...

Not to take away from Wayne’s excellent work,, but Alan Munde has it in his and Beth Mead’s book “The Great American Banjo Songbook”. But he does it in drop C tuning.

Hey Chuck...
If you play the tabs backwards, the tune becomes: "I'm Overlooking A Four Loaf Cleaver." angel

Great song. I have my own version of it, both down the neck and up the neck and love to play and sing it.

Chuck,
Why are you so defensive about your post? People can comment and add to any post. BHO couldn't exist if people couldn't post about someone's tab. They comment on my tabs and post their songs all the time and it's perfectly fine...Jack

Hi Jack,, it's not the comments I get on earned about, it's the fact that I mentioned another tab (Alan Munde's) on Wayne's thread. Could be borderline no-no....

Problem is that when i tried posting separate thread about another way to play a tune people still complained that i was hijacking the original thread. I do think that this a very narrow reason to deal with. I'm now hesitant to post any other variation of a tab...A we really this restrictive now?...

Howdy,
I'm glad to see people calming down with regards to what you can post if it adds to or addresses another's tab or song in a .particular thread. BHO has always been about being respectful to other's posts. When I post a tab people always post their versions of the same tab and it doesn't bother me at all. It shouldn't, as we want to add variation to posts. This happens to me all the time in the Tab Archive and I love it as it adds to the idea of variation of music...

If a person posts an entirely different subject in someone's thread and wants to take over the thread with their new idea and totally changes the topic, then it's hijacking. So let's just keep rolling on in BHO as we always have and trust each other....adios amigos...Jack   p.s. I don't think there should be any waiting period; totally unecessary to my way of thinking...

It's clear that there is no rule against posting your own tab in response to the tab offered by the original poster, but it just doesn't feel right to me. The other day Jack posted a tab of Ralph Stanley's Hard Times, and while it was the same tune, it looked more like how Jack might play it than it did any of Ralph's versions. I thought about posting my own transcription of the version Ralph did with his brother Carter, but decided against it. It just didn't feel right to me.

Don,
That wouldn't bother me a bit. I posted my version of Hard Times based on Ralph's so feel free to chime. J

I find it interesting to see the variations on a song by different people. Sometimes you can pick up a new lick or new idea that you can then incorporate into your playing. Sometimes you find a tab that's better (or worse) than what your version is, but one can always glean something from another person's tab.

I don't tab anything I play because I never know what I'm going to play, just that it's going to incorporate the melody and then fill in as my fingers and brain decide what to do together.

Maybe I’m looking at this wrong, but I figure if someone posts their tab on another tabber’s thread, then it seems like they’re stealing the OP’s thunder and promoting their own stuff at the expense of the OP. But then I’ve been wrong before.

Yes that is possible for people who never contribute anything....but I don't want to be that suspious Chuck
