Just a suggestion / wish... I wish that the tabs in the archive would be categorized according to difficulty as well as type of play style. I don't use the tab archive as much as I could / should just because half the time the tab is for intermediate or advance players and Scruggs style play. I know that there is a description included with the tab but it still seems a heavy slog to try to find suitable beginner's music.

Maybe no remedy and maybe too hard to implement but just my 2cents.

If you go to the Banjo Tab Library page (or on the left hand menu click on Learn and then Banjo Tab Library) you have several ways to look for a tab:

  1. Quick search. If you are looking for a specific tab, just put the title in the box on top of the page.
  2. Advanced search. Click on the black bar just below the quick search box. There you can choose genre, playing style (but two-finger is Clawhammer and Oldtime!), tuning, key and difficulty
  3. Alphabetical order. Click on the letter. Note that titles beginning with "The" can be found under T but also under another letter if the tab writer has skipped the "the" in the title. For example "The Wreck Of The Old 97" may be found under T or under W (if titled "Wreck Of The Old 97")

It seems to me that this is a solution in search of a problem. If I access a tab that is difficult to execute, I take that as a challenge that requires action: yes, not now or revisit soon.

A lot of our tabs state whether they are clawhammer, bluegrass, jazz,etc. A lot also state whether they are beginner, intermediate or advanced, whether they are pdf or some software like Tabledit. What more can we do to make it easier for you?
