Pachelbel Canyon

Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: C  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by heronhawk, updated: 4/16/2017
Download: PDF | MP3: [Play] [Download]

Notes: I wrote this melody for our contra dance band. It is based on the chord backup for a Scottish tune called 'Kohler's Hornpipe', which sounds a little like Pachelbel's Canon. Kohler's Hornpipe is sometimes called 'Pachelbel's Frolics'. The recording here is Greg Pelletier (banjo) and Jesse Partridge (guitar)

Notes: This is Ben Eldridge's banjo intro to "Pan American" from the Seldom Scene album "Old Train". A good friend of mine asked me to write this out for him, so I figured I'd just post it here. This is the first half - the last half is the same. I have tabbed this out in G in open G tuning. On the album it is in the key of B, which means you will have to capo up to the fourth fret to play this intro in the same key as the Scene. -John

Notes: Not a particularly interesting polka, but one that can be enthusiastically played by beginner and seasoned veteran alike, and usually quite appreciated by the audience. Banjo difficulty is somewhere between beginner and intermediate, but there are a few moderately difficult moves like the m-arpeggio and leading with a thumb in clawhammer style. This together with Britches Full Of Stitches, and Newmarket Polka, is an entire 3-song set of polkas with for the 5-string banjo in standard tuning - (capoed up two frets to match the fiddles.) Have fun wit' it b'ys!

Notes: π (sometimes written pi) is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of any Euclidean circle's circumference to its diameter. π is approximately equal to 3.14. π is an irrational number its decimal representation never ends and never repeats. I took the 204 first decimals and made music of. 1 became a G, 2 an A and som on so 8 became a high g (fifth string), 9 a high A and 0 a high B.

Notes: This tablature strays a bit from the traditional single string notation, because it follows the record recorded by Sonny Osborne at the age of 14 when he was a bluegrass boy. You may interchange the long notes for the more difficult single string notes if you wish. The tablature is not exactly as in the mp3, it is a bit simpler on page 2. Taught to me by Alan O'Bryant at Midwest Banjo Camp in 2011.

Notes: Here is Bill Monroe's classic instrumental. The first break approximates Earl Scruggs's version. The second break is an up-the-neck version (heresy! Earl did not play a high break), and the third break includes some melodic stuff that lets you keep the drive going while improvising a bit. Note that I am using Flatt and Scruggs's chord progression, where the 1 chord (G) and then the 5 chord (D) are played in measures 7 and 8, respectively. Monroe's original version held the 1 chord (G) in both measures 7 and 8, although he later played it with a 7 chord (F) and then 5 chord (D) in measures 7 and 8, respectively. I prefer Flatt and Scruggs's version, which is mid-way in complexity between Monroe's original stripped-down version and his later one. Although I have tabbed it out in the key of G, you would normally capo up 2 to play it in A.

Pretty Little Cat

Genre: Old Time  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: A  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by ChuckJo, updated: 4/14/2014
Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: Tuning: aEAC#E. This version of Pretty Little Cat comes from West Virginia fiddler Wilson Douglas. Named for president Woodrow Wilson, Douglas was born in 1922 on a farm in rural Clay County in an area known as Rush Fork. I did not know Wilson well, but did get to encounter him a few times. He had a fierce feeling and passion for old-time music that was moving and inspiring. Wilson Died at age 76 in 1999. Wilson recorded "Pretty Little Cat" on "Fiddle Tunes from Central West Virginia", with fine accompaniment of Kim Johnson on banjo and Mark Payne on guitar. Wilson's version has only one A and one B part. Lee Triplett, an older Clay County fiddler played a different melody that he called Pretty Little Cat.

Notes: Dock Boggs' "Pretty Polly", from his original 1927 recording. Literal tuning is eCFGC, which is D-modal (f#DGAD) down a whole-step. Rather close to his version of "Danville Girl". This is a pretty easy tune, with simple three-finger rolls, typical of Dock's unique 3-finger style.

Notes: This tab has errors in it that I am not able to correct as a beginner (I'm learning TablEdit). If I move the cursor to the second string and press 0, then move to the right and press 2, then move to the first string and press 0, it shows up as 7-5-7 on the tab vice 0-2-0. The notes on the staff above are correct, and when played it sounds correct. Does anybody know what the problem is with the numbers shown on the strings? I'm sure it must be a mistake I made with some finger fumble on the keyboard, etc. See my post at: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/289870/#3655135
