Here are some covers/tutorials of  some Amigo the Devil tunes.  This might be a lesson on Harley Poe's The Hearse

I think it will be challenging to find banjo tabs for the folk punk genre.  You CAN find guitar tabs, but those may only give you the chords, not the melody notes. Good luck on your banjo journey.

Welcome to the Hangout.  Do you play any other instruments?

This seems like a project you're going to have to do yourself. These groups are composing very simple songs w/ easy chord progressions. It's sometimes a good learning exercise to work tabs out oneself.

Thank you, it's much appreciated! I figured It would be, but I can always reach out to the artists as well- I've already had luck with that, so for ones who are smaller/still alive it'll probably be worth a shot.

I play the drums, ukulele, and washboard! I'm also trying to learn harmonica. Then I also sometimes play other various percussive instruments for school.

That makes sense, I just figured I'd ask to see if anyone had any, lol. You're right though, it'll be a good exercise.

Forgot to add this link to a tab for "The Hearse".  I think it goes along with the video above.  

If you look at the left side of the page, click on the "Learn" tab, and enter the name of a specific tune, you may find a tab.

Also, if you click on the question mark (it looks like a magnifying glass to me), this gets you to the search function, and you can type in artists, groups, names of tunes, etc. and see previous posts.  

Already playing the uke gives you a leg up on playing the banjo.  You could do a search for "clawhammer backup" and get some ideas.  If you can do some simple backup with the chords you get from the guitar tab sites, you're on your way.
