KA'ANAPALI SUNSET

Key: C  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Beginner
Posted by Draak, updated: 11/20/2013

Notes: I play this song on Ukulele. I have tabbed it to 5 string banjo in open G. Being a guitar and ukulele player, I have made it easier for us cross over players that can not make it fit into a constant banjo roll.

Notes: Here is an original tune I wrote for my middle daughter. I deliberately and systematically worked up the A part, but did not know what to do to finish off the tune. The B part came to me in a dream, believe it or not. I awakened with the melody fresh in my head, and ran to grab a banjo and play it before it faded.

Notes: I'm a beginner and two versions of this song I had weren't to my liking so I downloaded the demo to TablEdit and started working on this. It worked out so well (I think...) that I decided to get the pay copy of TableEdit, do a real nice version and post it here. It's fairly easy and straightforward except you can't really do phantom hammers in TablEdit that I know of so in the few spots where it looks like there is some drop thumb, just play them as phantom hammer-ons instead. Of course, you can probably drop thumb these parts, too, if you like.

Kentucky Borderline - Kick, First A and B parts

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: B  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  
Posted by eagleisland, updated: 1/20/2014
Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: This is a STUDY provided to assist in discussion of driving backup on the Playing Advice forum. Transcription is from a slowed version of the song from Rhonda Vincent and the Rage's "Ragin' Live" album. I believe the first 29 measures or so are a reasonably accurate reflection of what Kenny Ingram played during the kick and first verse. I am less confident in the B part (starting at measure 30); there was a lot of artifact in the original recording I was working from and while the banjo in the recording is still providing pulse it's a little hard to hear all the subtleties under the harmony vocals.

Notes: There are two midi sound files posted here: The first midi provides the sound of each string, from 5th to 1st, to help you get your banjo in an Open D tuning. The second midi follows the tab note for note. The midi is played at half speed to facilitate learning. The tab itself is a PDF file for easier access to those who might not have the TABrite program loaded on their computer.

Notes: I learned this nifty little traditional tune from my Friday night jam buddies. Thanks to Neil, Dennis, and Len. Two things I really like about the tune: First, the melody has some unexpected twists and turns that appeal to me. Second, the A part is in the key of A major, whereas the B part downshifts to A minor.
