D licks in the key of G

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: Here are 5 licks that you can use for a G-D-G turnaround. The first 4 are originals of mine. The first employs a chordal approach. The second substitutes a Bb chord for the D, to provide a kind of bluesy effect that is unexpected and punchy. The third is one of my default licks, which I have used in a variety of tunes. The fourth I have also used in many tunes, including "Are You Missing Me," which you can hear on my BHO page, at http://www.banjohangout.org/myhangout/media-player/audio_player2.asp?musicid=9864&archived= I have to tell you that for years I struggled with tabbing the correct timing on this one, and the solution came to me while I was sleeping -- I kid you not. The last one is a wonderful Bill Emerson lick. It is constructed beautifully, and I feel a sense of peace and oneness with the universe when I hear it. Okay, perhaps that's overstating it somewhat. But it is a great lick, which is anchored in the repetitive use of the C note, the flatted 7th, on the second string, with the melody notes doing a lovely walk up the first string.

Notes: Melodic banjo version of a fantastic fiddle tune. Thanks must go to Mike Stangland for his great guitar tab (also included here), from which the banjo tab has been created. I have put the key as Bb (Capo III - G shapes), as it is in this key that Bryan Sutton plays it and Stuart Duncan appears to cope ok on the fiddle! I hope you enjoy it.

Notes: Dance Around Molly is a nice old fiddle tune, made known by Tommy Magness (who played with Bill Monroe and later with Roy Acuff in the 40's, and on Grand Ole Opry). This tab represents several different styles: 1) Some kind of old-time melodic three-finger playing almost all notes as the fiddle plays. There is two variants of the first part (part A): first a high version and then a lower version down the neck version. In the fiddle recording part A is the low part which start on the low notes (fourth string on the fiddle) and goes up, but to play all the notes I chose to go up one octave. In the variation I cheat away the low notes. 2) Some kind of Scruggs style. 3) Clawhammer Choose whatever style you like.

Notes: This is a mandolin tune written by Bill Napier when he was with the Stanley Brothers, who recorded it first as Daybreak in Dixie and later as Ralph's Banjo Special. To make matters even murkier, they recorded it once again as Daybreak in Dixie but with a slightly different chord progression in the A part. Whatever, it is a nice tune that works well in jams. I have tabbed it in G, but you should capo up 2 to A (because it was written on the mandolin).

Notes: So I wrote this song while trying to learn 'drop-thumb'... It is a simple tune with 'drop-thumb' in about half of the measures. It is a good tune to learn on, in my opinion, and even if you can already drop that thumb, its a cute little tune. Try it out and tell me what you think!

Notes: Here are two breaks for this popular jamming tune that I came up with several decades ago. The first (high) break provides variations on the way Earl Scruggs played it, and you can find tabs of Scruggs’s version in his book and also elsewhere in the Tab Archive. As far as I know, Alan Munde’s version included the first recorded low break to the tune, and the second break here is a low break I came up with, inspired by Munde's, that includes a bunch of tricks/licks I find myself using in a variety of different tunes.

After listening to a lot of Kenny Baker lately (October 2016), I revisited the tab and edited it a bit. It is a lovely medium-tempo tune, and my arrangement highlights the power of the pull-off on the first string out of the C position.

Notes: Here's a wicked little banjo tune from the great Alan Munde and Country Gazette. Lots of "Dillard" roll here, and everything falls nicely under the fingers until the diminished run at the end, which is fairly prickly.... This is one you should have in your arsenal - enjoy! Skip Holmes.

Notes: aEAC#E. This tune is tabbed out in the most basic open ended way I could figure. Everybody plays a little different so I just try to get the basic thing out. That doesn't mean it is easy but it doesn't mean it's hard. Tunes evolve over time. I actually had to undate one messure to how I play it today. As my old friend Bob Holt would put it "I wrote that tune...after I played it about a thousand times". Have fun with it. It is one of my favorites.

Notes: Bill Keith was scheduled to teach at the Alabama Folk School at Camp McDowell this spring, and consequently I was very excited to get to pick his brain for 4 whole days. However, he unfortunately had to decline due to a "health issue beyond his control." So, I thought I'd just learn a few of his tunes anyway. Why not start with one of the first ones that made him famous… the "Devi's Dream" and "Sailor's Hornpipe" medley from the "Livin' On The Mountain" album? This should be a note for note transcription, with the possible exception that there were a couple of spots where he may have used a "pull-off" lick getting to the A minor chord, but I couldn't really tell. I didn't include it, so the A minor bits are played around the 5th fret, instead of the first. Adjust settings so that chords are displayed as letter names only, tab is displayed at 4 bars per line, and view is scaled to 16th notes. I wish him well and hope that his health improves so that he might make it back in the future.

Notes: Ralph Stanley's "Dickson County Breakdown", a banjo breakdown that is basically a lot of common banjo licks over a simple melody, nonetheless great sounding and fun to play. Although rather close to Ralph's break, neither of the breaks are replicas of his own; they are fully my own interpretations. He doesn't do the up the neck break, but I thought it was fun so I threw it in there. Has useful, standard key of "G" introduction & ending that can fit on many songs. Includes a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Notes: On 8 December 1962 Flatt and Scruggs played their legendary concert at Carnegie Hall. It was not the first bluegrass concert at Carnegie Hall, having been preceded by Earl Taylor and the Stoney Mountain Boys, but it is certainly the most memorable. Dig a Hole in the Meadow was one of the songs the Foggies played, and it incorporates one of Earl’s most elegant breaks that nails the melody without over-reliance on formulaic rolls. Ironically, Bill Monroe recorded the song as Darling Cory just 2 days before, on 6 December 1962, with Lonnie Hoppers playing a break similar but not identical to Earl’s on banjo. Most bluegrass folk are probably familiar with the version by the Foggies, but you should definitely give a listen to Monroe’s version as well: His singing is outstanding, Kenny Baker's fiddle playing is beautiful as always, and Monroe takes a mandolin break that is positively eerie.

Notes: Dixie Hoedown is a wonderful tune written by Jesse McReynolds. Most of us are familiar with Jim and Jesse's 1950s recording of it, with Bobby Thompson playing a semi-melodic style on banjo. The tablature is my own version of Dixie Hoedown, comprising two breaks. The B Part in the second break is a bit tricky. I was trying to find a way to play the half-step discord between the C and B notes in the B minor chord and between A# and A in the A minor chord. I could find the discordant note on the fifth string, but could not play the other notes out of the minor chord on strings 1, 2, and 3 because my left hand could not accommodate the positions. I hit upon playing from the chord position on strings 2, 3, and 4, with the discordant note on the fifth. This works well, but it requires some practice. If the text describing the B Part does not make sense to you, just use the MIDI function in TablEdit to play the tab, so that you can at least hear what it should sound like.

Notes: Here's an old tune from the late 20's (I think), "Doin' The Uptown Lowdown". I learned this from a Joe Venuti and his Blue Six recording from '34, with some help from "Joe Venuti and his Orchestra"'s recording. It's a cool number with a not too complicated chord progression that moves right along. The bridge, IMHO, is wonderful, how it hangs on that Bb7 and is just dying to resolve. A good number to jam on. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Notes: Here is a fine old fiddle tune from Texas, Done Gone, in the key of Bb. There are actually 2 different versions here, both adapted from the two versions in the "Craig Duncan Master Fiddle Solo Collection". The first version, a three part tune, is accommodating of the lower register of the banjo note-for-note in the first and second parts, although some "octave switching" is needed in the third part. The second version requires the use of the upper register of the banjo, and is much more difficult. It's not a jam standard, but a fun piece to play and should you come across a fiddler who knows either version, it's an excellent tune to play. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Notes: I transcribed this from Jim's sound file posted here. You will find that bars 13-16 are a bit different than on other passes through. I have written out bars 13-16 just as Jim played them, but you may find it easier to substitute bars 21-23, which are very similar to the intro. The tab itself cannot accurately describe Jim's exceptional nuance and dynamics... you'll have to listen very closely to duplicate which notes sing out, and which notes are tucked into the background. This afternoon I went through this tab with Jim to ensure it's accuracy. I hope you enjoy it. - John

Notes: I've had to learn fiddle tunes on banjo for my current Celtic-oriented band. When I can't find a tab in a book or online, I have to work out my own three-finger arrangements. Typically, I start at one of the ABC Notation sites to get the basic melody. This setting of Donnybrook Fair is the first one I've taken the time to enter in TablEdit. I'm uploading the same tab in PDF in case your TablEdit display and print preferences don't like my tab. (And in case you don't have the TEF player) December 9, 2017: Uploaded new TEF and PDF files reflecting the way my fingering has changed. MIDI file still plays the old way (with some slides that I no longer play)

Notes: I made this tab on a request for a clawhammer tab, but it includes three different versions. Down On The Corner is a difficult clawhammer tune because of its calypso rhythm, three-finger style works much better. To get the calypso rhythm in clawhammer you must use some drop thumbs combined with "skips" (or air brushes), and emphasize the drop thumb notes. To get the calypso rhythm in 3-finger it is just to play a forward roll (T M t I M t I M - T for emphasize melody note played by thumb and t for thumb on fifth string) The three versions I have tabbed are: 1. First the basic riffs, as played on guitar (but it is played one octave lower on guitar). It is important to get the right rhythm when playing this. Count fast 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2 and the melody notes falls on the 1s.This can be played in any style. 2. Then a clawhammer version where I have tried to get the calypso rhythm. Be sure to get the drop thumb and the skips (air brushes) right to keep the rhythm. Your hand shall be moving in a steady up and down motion as in most clawhammer tunes, but the emphasized drop thumbs and skips will get the calypso rhythm effects. 3. And finally a three-finger version based on a simple forward roll. I think this is much easier than the clawhammer version because the forward roll fits into the calypso rhythm.

Notes: This starts with one of Earl Scruggs's breaks from the 1949 recording, then proceeds to a version of one of Crowe's breaks from the Bluegrass Album Band, and finishes with a couple of my breaks. You may find it useful to compare the subtle differences between Scruggs's approach and Crowe's. It is often played in the key of B, with the capo moved up 4 frets.

Drunkard's Lone Child

Genre: Traditional  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  
Posted by munchausen, updated: 6/3/2016
Download: TABLEDIT | PDF

Notes: "Drunkard's Lone Child," based on the playing of Dock Boggs. This song makes use of a 3 finger up picking style. The banjo follows the vocal melody. The thumb plays notes on the 3rd, 4th, and drone strings while the index and middle fingers play the 2nd and 1st strings, respectively. My version follows Boggs' 1963 recording, where he plays the initial verse a little differently from the rest. I have offered both ways in the tablature. The tab here is a basic outline, but in actual practice many liberties may be taken and variations played. I improvise a little when I play this, and I play with timing quite a bit, as Boggs often did. The tuning is f#CGAD.

Notes: DM is a wonderful old fiddle tune that arises in many jams. My arrangement is based in part on Butch Robins's recording and in part on an obscure tape of Bill Keith playing it in a jam at Roland White's house in 1968. I have to warn you that it might be Vic Jordan playing banjo on the White tape, because he recorded a similar arrangement on his solo album a few years later. However, to me it sounds like Keith's playing and Keith's banjo. In any case, I tabbed it out in G, but to accommodate the fiddle and mandolin you would normally capo up 2 and play it in the key of A.
