Hi Folks,

I've been building up a playlist on YouTube of videos of me playing tunes on the banjo with each video having a link to a corresponding tab that I've placed here on the BHO. I'm up to 50 videos now, with more coming. The repertoire is eclectic, but mostly falls in the old time/traditional realm, and the styles include clawhammer, 2F, and old timey 3F.

The playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL00z9mDkwwfefdIPHvcnca7dehR_oXhRn

Anyway, I hope this provides some value to folks playing traditional banjo.

I can't 100% guarantee that my tabs are free of occasional goofs or omissions, and they aren't always exact transcriptions of my playing, but I've checked them for errors as best I can, and they follow my playing in the videos close enough to put you in the right direction. If you use this resource, and notice something off in a tab, please let me know--it's easy enough to correct the error.

Thanks, and have fun!

Jack

Thanks Jack, I really enjoy your skillful playing and look forward to when I can actually not make a mess of some of your tabs!

Thanks very much. This is really good of you. Already picked out Blackest Crow and also will have a go at your 2f boll weevil blues. I already play a version Based on Josh Turknetts claw hammer, but will be fun to try a proper 2f version.

John, It appears that a moderator made this a sticky topic in the forum it was posted in.  It will reside at the top of the forum topic list along with any other sticky topics.  Thanks so much, and it's good to know that folks find this useful.  More tunes with tabs are coming.

I always enjoy hearing how folks approach tunes.  That's why I can enjoy hearing the old standards over and over.

Jack; I really like what you do with the tunes.  Great playing- you have great taste.

Thanks so much R. D.!  And I hope people take my renditons as "suggestions" which they can adapt to their tastes.  Pretty much all my stuff is borrowed from someone else, either directly or indirectly.

Work, yes some, but way more joy in doing this. It's great to have the means and the tools to put stuff out there.

God Bless You Jack. Your generosity helps many aspiring players as well as many of us longtimers as well.

I personally think that's a point which cannot be emphasised enough.

Jack, thank you. No doubt I will spend many hours watching your videos as I attempt to learn old time banjo.
