Folks, Some of you may be aware that I have a playlist on my YouTube channel, “Jack’s Banjo Tunes with Linked Tabs”. I posted about that playlist a while a back, and that post is pinned to the top of this forum for easy reference (https://www.banjohangout.org/topic/385133). There are now some 122 videos in that playlist, each a performance by me, playing the 5-string banjo, with a link to corresponding tabs stored here on the BH. There is a mix of styles—mostly clawhammer and two finger--but up-picking and some three finger picking too.

I’ve now split out a couple sub-playlists--one for clawhammer and one for two-finger picking--for those of you who may be more interested in a single style of banjo picking.

Clawhammer playlist with tabs: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL00z9mDkwwfeYJvDDoiCG056FGnfrfZep

Two finger playlist with tabs: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL00z9mDkwwfdlu-FI_5y4mkq7Di2KiK4j

I’ve created all the tabs, so there may be unintentional “tabos” here and there, given that I am my own editor. So, if you use this resource and notice something off, lmk, with a message through BH or a comment on YouTube. Fixes are easy.

Also, note that the tabs are very close approximations of the performances, but they are not carbon copies in all cases. So, please approach them a guides pointing you in the right direction, rather than note-for-note transcriptions. And certainly, add your own variations and spices, as you see fit.

I truly appreciate, and am gratified by this “tunes with tabs” project. So many people have responded so positively. I fills my banjo heart to know that I am contributing to the tradition of passing on those things I’ve learned along the way, and am still learning. And more content will be coming. Social media can be used for good, and hopefully this is just one example of that. 

Keep on pickin’!

Would a website be too much to set up? A place to go directly to your offerings? As far as I know your posting will soon disappear and I won't have a way to find it? Regardless, I certainly appreciate ALL your postings so a well-meaning – Thank You! banjered

Tom, I've thought about that, and while still an option, the downside to that (other than my ineptitude with website design) is that if I disappear, then the website will also go defunct at some point.  Placing the tabs on the BH has seemed like the best choice for some level of posterity.  Curious as to why you think my postings will soon disappear--am I missing something? I am open to ideas. I've also thought about putting the tabs into a single pdf book that I would need to update periodically, and each tab would have a hyperlink to the YT video.

Thank you very much for you work. After many years of playing and learning fiddle tunes by ear, I prefer tabs for my banjo work. I find them faster and much less likely to allow me to play it the way "I hear it".

Jack, I have benefited greatly from your tabs and videos. Most days I listen to at least 2 or 3 before I start my practice. Learning your tabs has been a way to improve my 2F skills and techniques. Thanks for what you’re doing!

Ditto appreciation! Wasn't that quite a discussion a while back about FTF versus FFT? I enjoyed beyond words your 2F version of Pretty Polly. Viva BHO variety! banjered
