Half Past Four

Genre: Old Time  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: A  Difficulty: Expert
Posted by ChuckJo, updated: 1/24/2013
Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: Here is my clawhammer interpretation of Ed Haley's Half Past Four. According to John Hartford, Ed's son Lawrence Haley said Ed wrote this tune about the passing of Sherman Luther, Ed's firstborn boy, who died in childbirth at half past four in the morning. Ed Haley (1885-1951) was a blind fiddler who who traveled widely throughout West Virginia, Ohio, eastern Kentucky and southwestern Virginia, and is known for his powerful fiddling and distinctive repertoire. The tab includes open-string pull-offs marked by bold "PO". The tuning is aEAC#E, which can be reached by tuning the strings up, or by capoing standard G tuning at the second fret.

Hamblen #12

Genre: Old Time  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: A  Tuning: Sawmill (gDGCD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by slc, updated: 3/2/2011
Download: JPEG | MIDI [Play] [Download]

Notes: This is an untitled tune on page 12 of the Hamblen Collection, a compilation of tunes from the 1800's (this is only available from the Library of Congress, in facsimile). Since the title 'Untitled Tune' is confusing, I think 'Hamblen 12' serves a decent stand-in, and anyone familiar with the Collection will understand the meaning. If you're curious about this collection, a Google search will be very fruitful! This tab is to go with a previously uploaded MP3 of me playing the tune (included here), and a MIDI file of this tab. 'Hamblen 12' has been lots of fun in a session and I'm hoping more people get to play it!

Notes: Adapted for 3-finger style banjo from a YouTube Video of Nancy & Norman Blake playing it on mandolin & guitar respectively [ https://youtu.be/_I_hmwUMHzE ] this is a three part tune in Em with a cute A to Am move in it, and a weird number of bars in the A part. Great to play, once you have the parts of the tune in your head!

Hanon Finger Exercise 01 for Banjo

Posted by davidtoc, updated: 1/9/2011
Download: TABLEDIT | PDF

Notes: I miss playing all of those wonderful exercises by C.L. Hanon for Piano. These exercises were intended to build accuracy, speed, finger strength, and endurance. Recently, I finally decided to convert one of them to tab for banjo. Play slowly, with metronome or with Tabledit until you can play them perfectly, then gradually increase speed over time. Unlike with the piano, you can move the exercise down the neck if you want to increase finger stretching.

Notes: by Ralph Stanley, as heard on the 2001 album "Man of Constant Sorrow". I couldn't find a tab or lesson that sounded close enough so here's a note by note reconstruction of the recording. Fingering might be off but I'm 99% sure of the notes. The recording is about a quarter of a tone sharp, if you're planning to play along with both you might want to pitch shift it.

Notes: When my doctor starts hinting at my having to go to the hospital I try to immerse myself in some positive uplifting activity. This past week that positive uplifting activity was an attempt at banjofying one of my favorite tunes: HaTikva ("The Hope"). Here it is. I'm not playing the banjo in the MP3 - it was generated from the MIDI file. Nothing fancy here however I'm quite fond of it. Hope you enjoy it.

Notes: Since I'm not convinced that I'm "done" with the song yet, I'm asking for input. How might someone else play it, or how might the existing structure be improved? Please let me know what you think. The song uses a "simplified" version of the original chord progression (Neil Young played Em7 chords often, whereas I have simply replaced many of them with Em chords because I couldn't figure out a way to make it sound as good on the banjo).

Notes: Here's the banjo back-up tab for an old fiddle tune, "Hell's Broke Loose In Georgia". The first time through is very easy, all played out of the drop-C tuning open C chord, and only one left hand ornament, a simple choke. All forward rolls. The second time through is more of an intermediate/advanced version using hammer-ons, pull-offs, and more difficult chokes as well as more varied rolls. This is in the style of banjo & fiddle. Has a mandolin melody track. Have fun!

Posted by KI4PRK, updated: 11/25/2009
Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: The Don Reno banjo instrumental "Hen Scratchin' Stomp". It's sort of Don's take on Katy Hill, with the second section in E instead of G. As in the 1949 Mercury recording of "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" by Flatt & Scruggs, the banjo plays in E minor while the backup band plays in E major. Creates a cool effect. This is a good start to learning Don's rolls, & to see where he differs from the Scruggs style even in its basic rolls. Not too hard, & an altogether fun piece to play. Try bringing it out at your next jam; very few people know it, but it's a simple tune & the others will pick it up quickly. I highly recommend listening to the Tennessee Cut-Ups original recording. It's full of energy, drive, & will give you a good idea of Don's timing.

Notes: Here is a contest fiddle favorite, "Herman's Rag", arranged for 5-string banjo. This is a rather difficult piece, and is transcribed almost note for note from the music for fiddle from "The Craig Duncan Master Fiddle Solo collection", from Mel Bay. The banjo melody is an octave down from the fiddle, and I've changed the melody where it would go too low for the banjo. I've left the contest variations in, so it makes quite an interesting banjo piece. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Notes: This is one of Doug Dillards Slower tunes at 170 BPM. Have a fire extinguisher nearby if you can play it that fast. I tabbed out all of the banjo parts, three breaks, and backup to the mando breaks. I included the chords for your guitar buddy and all of the lyrics, even the nasty ones. It is the version from the Backyard Bluegrass LP and here is a sound file to help you learn the tune (I suggest playing it at half speed to learn it): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KV_AF07YMk Have fun.

Posted by KI4PRK, updated: 9/8/2009 - 3 Member Comments
Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: Highlands Hornpipe is a two-part Canadian fiddle tune in Bb & F major. I think there may be a third part or bridge in G minor floating around out there, but I'm not sure. The form is AABB, ending with the first part (AA). E.G., you're at a jam, the fiddle plays AABB, the mandolin plays AABB, the banjo plays AABB, and the fiddle plays AABBAA, end of tune. This is a nice smooth piece, and fortunately it's not too hard to get the real smoothness. There is some "cross-picking" (crossing one right-hand finger over another), and some dropping the middle finger inside. The A section is in Bb & the B section is in F. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Make liberal use of on-the-beat slides on some of the melody notes, as if playing this on a fretless banjo. I learned the tune from an Art Rosenbaum recording, where he plays it in clawhammer style.

Notes: Great jazz tune, here using voice-leading, with harmony notes underneath and melody on top. It's a straight version of the "head." I also have an intermediate version with easier chords, and another version uses chord arpeggios, rolling through the chords, but not concerned with stating the melody, just playing around it for fun. Enjoy!

Notes: Great jazz tune, here using chord arpeggios, rolling through the chords, but not concerned with stating the melody, just playing around it for fun. I have two others (intermediate and advanced) using voice-leading, with harmony notes underneath and melody on top. Both are very straight versions of the "head." Enjoy!

Notes: Great jazz tune, here using voice-leading, with harmony notes underneath and melody on top. It's a very straight version of the "head." I also have an advanced version of this using fuller chords. Another version uses chord arpeggios, rolling through the chords, but not concerned with stating the melody, just playing around it for fun! Enjoy!

Notes: Byron Berline wrote this delightful tune and first recorded it on one of the early albums by Country Gazette. In addition to a guitar break by Clarence White, the recording featured a stellar melodic banjo break by Alan Munde, which I have tried to capture here. The break is difficult and tricky, but mastering it is sure worth the effort.

Notes: Hey kids, ever want to impress your chums down at the malt shop by playing two tunes at once? Well, here's your chance! I first heard Bill Keith play something close to this back in the 1960s and much later heard Bobby Thompson play a version on the famous front-porch tape that Steve Arkin and Keith made of Thompson in 1964 or so. There are no standard 3-finger rolls in this piece, and undoubtedly there are different (and probably better) ways of playing the same notes. But this is what I came up with, and it seems to work, although it is tough to play.

Notes: I found this odd little tune - sometimes called Cuffe Street or Old Cuffe Street - in 1000 Fiddle Tunes, The Fiddler's Bible, several years ago. At the time I couldn't find a recording of it so I put chords to it that I thought worked and we'd play it at jams. Since then I've found a couple of versions of it and, not surprisingly, mine sounds much too American. Oh well, I like it.

Notes: This is a jolly catchy jig i composed with an A and B part plus a Minor modulation to keep up the interest. The tab goes along to the first part of the video - then the rest of the video has vamping and up the neck parts which aren't included in the tab.
