Good day fellow banjoists!

I'm looking for a tab or Pancho and Lefty for clawhammer. I appreciate any leads you may have.

Thanks!

Adam, do you have a preferred tuning or key? Lots of guitar versions are in D, for example. Your profile doesn't indicate whether you may be a beginner or intermediate. Open-G tuning or double-C tuning are both good candidates for this song, but your voice level or banjo experience may make one version better for you than the other.

I recently worked P&L out in CH. There are lots of versions, slightly different melody, timing, words. I liked Emmy Lou Harris' version as a jumping point. I don't know how to tab or even post an audio or video but it lays out pretty well in standard G tuning and following somewhat the guitar chords. On the high parts I bar the fifth fret for the high notes. I actually play it in D tuning dADF#A which is G tuning lowered down to D, using Aquila Minstrel Nylguts. Kind of fun to work out your own version which is a good skill to develop since most songs don't have CH tabs, especially the songs YOU'd like to play. banjered

Hi David, thanks for responding.  I should perhaps update my profile.

I would consider myself an intermediate player.  I'm capable of doing "rolls", double thumbing and lots of little fill ins.

Right now, I found my range in double C tuning, singing in D (i.e. capo II), which best suits my voice.

Michael J. Miles has an arrangement of "Pancho and Lefty" (Double-C) in his fine collection "Country Classics for Banjo" (Hal Leonard). There's no one better to learn from.
