Notes: This is from the Muppet Show where my friend Kermit is singing the tune. Rainbow Connection is a tricky tune because it has a key change in the middle, where the orginal key is raised a halt tone. Here the tune starts in C major but in the second half there is a raise to Db major or C#major. I think the original goes in A major and raises to Bb major.

Posted by corcoran, updated: 7/27/2014
Download: TABLEDIT

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: I tabbed this MYSELF, so it might not look perfect. I spent about 2 hours trying to get the tuning and the basic chords right, then about 5-7 hours actually writing it down....then about 1-2 hours going through it over and over and over again trying to make sure that it sounds ok. The only problem of mine would be that I just could not for the life of me figure out how to make using the computer so i did it the old fashion way, everyone else's tabs look MUCH neater then mine does but i don't care, personally. I'm just glad i am able to share it with you guys. Hope it sounds okay and thanks so much to anyone using it, it honestly means so much!!! :) xx NOTE: This is based of of Taylor Swift's 'Red (Original Demo Recording)' that can be found on her RED Deluxe Edition CD. They are similar, but have some differences, mainly that this one sounds more country (in my personal opinion) Tuning Open-G, Lowered 5th string, PLAY WITH CAPO on 4 (without using a capo on the 5th string). I have found that i have to re-tune just a little when i put on the capo. When you have the capo on the tuning will be f#F#BEbF#

Notes: Yeah, another version of RHB. This is a great old fiddle tune, played at almost all jams. I have tabbed out two breaks. The first is my attempt to capture the melody in standard "Scruggs" style (i.e., North Carolina three-finger style), with a few melodic riffs thrown in. The second is a more frankly melodic break. Lots of stuff here you can use in other tunes as well.

Notes: Redwing is a nice simple tune that is common in jams. However, for some reason it was never immediately obvious to me how to find the melody of the B part of Redwing. You could say that I had trouble winging it. Anyway, eventually I sat down and worked the B part up quite deliberately. The first break is pretty straight Scruggs style, whereas the second break is more improvisational.

Notes: This is a wonderful version of Redwing as played by John Apfelthaler. Check out the videos on John's BHO home page to hear him playing it. First time around is Scruggs style, followed by melodic and up the neck arrangements. The down the neck arrangemnt is reasonably straightforward while the melodic and up the neck arrangements are reasonably challenging.

I was just discussing the tune with BHO member John Steele in the BHO Chatroom (6/15/15), and we disagreed about how Jim plays the opening measure of the B part. I went back and listened to it again, and decided John was right. So I have revised the tab accordingly.

Notes: This song has morphed into many different versions throughout the years. John McEuen first composed it in the 1960s as 'Dismal Swamp'. It later got some new life breathed into it when he rearranged it in the late-1970s and recorded it as 'White Russia' on the self-titled album 'The Dirt Band'. Later still it resurfaced once more in what we know today as 'Return to Dismal Swamp'. In my tab I've incorporated all the known versions of this song into one arrangement. It's a great banjo tune from the mind of John McEuen and it's worthy of your interest.

Notes: This is a wonderful tune by Bill Monroe. My band has been known to have fun with the title -- "Road to Columbia," "Pathway to Peru," and so on. Anyway, the banjo break combines Scruggs style with melodic sequences, which are necessary if you have any hope of capturing the melody. In addition, melodic sequences are worth playing for their own sake, and I regret that they seem to have fallen out of favor with many current banjo players. I have included two versions of the B part, a low break and a high break. I play it either way, although the version low on the neck is easier when the stage is dark (and I can't see where the positions are higher up on the neck). To accommodate the fiddle, the tune is played in A, with the banjo capoed up 2.

Notes: I wrote this tune in late 2009 and named it after one of my favorite paintings by my favorite artist, who I happen to be married to. (For a glimpse of her art, go to www.jancorcoran.com). The tune wrote itself as I fiddled -- okay, "banjoed" -- with the chord progression, and I managed to incorporate the use of Keith tuners. I hope you like it.

Rocky Road to Dublin (from Wilson Douglas)

Notes: This version of Rocky Road to Dublin comes from Fiddler Wilson Douglas of Clay County West Virginia. Wilson was born in 1922 on a farm in rural Clay County in an area known as Rush Fork. Sometime in the early 1980’s, Kate Brett and I decided to visit some older players in West Virginia. We were looking for Wilson, and happened to stumble upon David Morris, who arranged a meeting. I did not know Wilson well, but he had a fierce feeling and a deep passion for old-time music that was moving and inspiring. Wilson Died at age 76 in 1999. Wilson recorded “Rocky Road to Dublin” on “The Right Hand Fork of Rush’s Creek”, Rounder Records 0047, recorded and produced by Guthrie T. Meade and Mark Wilson, 1975 , re-released on CD in 2005. Wilson plays this tune in the key of G on the recording. When I worked it out on the fiddle, it seemed to fit best with the fiddle tuned “GDgd”. The album notes say this: ‘The title has been used for at least one jig and a polka, presumably referring to the Irish city. Wilson says, “that tune was composed about Dublin, Virginia. That was the only trail at that time through Virginia and they named the town Dublin”’. Wilson’s recording actually starts on what I would call a fragment of the “B” part, and then goes to the “C” part, before going to the “A” part. (The tune ends on the “C” part). I have recorded the tune with the “A” part first, the “B” part second, and the “C” part third. The “A” and “C” parts repeat, but the “B” part is only played once. Towards the end of the recording, Wilson plays a variation on the “A” part. The first time I play through the tune, I play it straight, but the second time through, I play the “A” variation. For variety, I created some up-the-neck variations for the third time through before returning to the theme the last time around. Note that an “R” in the tab indicates a roll (Galax Lick), and “()” in the tab means the note is to be played quietly or may be skipped entirely, at the discretion of the banjoist. Allen Sisson recorded an entirely different melody titled “Rocky Road to Dublin”. Another version comes from Clyde Davenport.

Notes: Not everyone can sing Rocky Top in G, A, B flat, or B. One guy I have picked with (Vic the Butcher, who is the biggest ... but I digress) can sing it only in D. Well, it works well in D, in G tuning with the fifth string tuned up to A (slip it under the model railroad spike at the seventh fret). The only tricky bits in my arrangement are in the chorus. If you have difficulty figuring out how it should sound, give a listen to the TablEdit MIDI file.

Roll Etude

Genre: Unknown/None Chosen  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: C  Difficulty: Expert

Notes: This is an "etude" as much for me as anyone else - I'm studying "Bach language" and "banjo language," and playing around with modulation - all part of getting me where I want to go compositionally. I like it at quarter = 175, with the middle section a little slower. In any case I think a metronomic approach to this might not conform to "the composer's intent." I'll learn to play it and letcha know! :o) The chicago-capoed-at-the-fifth-fret tuning is because I originally wrote this on my ukulele. Copyright now, me.

Notes: This was copied from a pdf of a Jack Hatfield version "Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms" is an American traditional song. It seems to have developed from lyrics in the cowboy song "My Lula Gal",[1] itself a development of bawdy British and Appalachian songs generally known as "Bang Bang Rosie" or "Bang Away Lulu.

I've included the lyrics as song by Bobby Horton and a youtube link at bottom. Substitute the drop-thumb measures to add melody to the tune as you get comfortable with the song.

Ruffled Drawers (New Five Cents)

Genre: Traditional  Style: Other  Key: D  Tuning: Double C (gCGCD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by Tom Hanway, updated: 6/9/2015
Download: JPEG - Download from hangoutstorage.com

Notes: Here is a straightforward setting using Double D tuning (Double C-Capo II) for the Old Time reel that goes under interchangeable titles. The titles create confusion since there are two main branches in Old Time and further regional, local and bluegrass variants. The A Part is pretty close in most versions with one noticeable variation – either dipping down to an A-note or rising up to F# in the second and sixth measures. This variation is found in both Old Time and Bluegrass versions and a G chord is sometimes played in these spots. It’s in the B Part (fifth and sixth measures) where the melodic contour branches in one of two directions – either dipping down from the fifth (A) to the tonic (D)/D chord, or, as Paul Warren played it (New Five Cents), using a G-note double-stop with a B-note)/G chord, then up to an A-note/A chord and moving upwards happily in major second intervals. Many (but not all) Old Time versions (‘New Five Cents’, ‘Ruffled Drawers’ or ‘Buffalo Nickel’) tend to keep dipping down to the low D-note/D chord and use fewer chords than Bluegrass versions which are based on Paul Warren’s version.

Notes: Written by Doyle Lawson, recorded (more than once) by J. D. Crowe. The first break is an amalgam of the several different versions by Crowe. Although it is not note-for-note, it captures the feel of his breaks. The second break starts with a bit of a take-off on Jerry Douglas's dobro break (on the "Straight Ahead" CD), and then goes into an up-the-neck variation on the B part. The right hand in the high part is a bit tricky, involving using the middle finger on the second string in a kind of repetitive inside roll like this: 5-3-2-5-1-2-3-1
