Wagon Wheel

Genre: Folk  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Beginner

Notes: I just worked up a simple CH tab.... along the lines of the way I play it. The only real embellishments I've added are where I hammer on into the melody note on the first beat of some of the measures. For note... on the first beat and third beat of each measure where I only show a single note being played, I am actually either hammering down into the whole chord or already holding the whole chord down. As to the note on the third beat of each measure you may also wish to modulate up, down, or stay on the same note as the first note of that same measure... to suit your taste and depending on whether you are leaving the anticipation of leading into the next passage, or providing closure to the passage you are in.

Notes: This is how I play the ultimate sing-along-song, Wagon Wheel. Slap that capo onto whatever key you sing this song best in and play away. Listen to OCMS recording to figure out the timing of the verses.

Notes: Another short tune I wrote, this one is also in Cumberland Gap tuning, a Sawmill tuning variation (gEADE). Its Sawmill with a capo on the second fret, but the fifth string stays at 'g'. There is a little bit of 'drop-thumb', but its a pretty simple little tune, sad but sweet. There is a video of me playing it if you want to hear it. Enjoy.

Notes: A much better version of Washington & Lee Swing than my last, which had a lot of mistakes in it. This one is a completely banjo version, with 4 breaks, the last being a slight variation on the first. It does NOT include the second part, which is a throw-over from Don Reno's recordings of the tune (my inspiration) in which the key changes to G and the fiddle does the second part. It is in the key of C, standard G tuning. Has some funky rolls that I like to throw in there just to mess up banjo players and to make listeners say "huh?". I've always felt the timing in this tune had to be especially accurate to get it to sound good, so make sure you listen to one of Don Reno's recordings of it, as well as a jazz/western swing or marching band take on it. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun

Notes: My first attempt at Grandpa Jones "Down the old Plank Road" which I play along with often. This is a beginner version which can be improvised to include a lot more strumming rather than single note as noted. Lyrics included. For the chorus I use a long 2-4 slide on the 3rd string to for the word "Won't". Grandpa played in key of A, so capo 2 to match, and play around with the strumming. Grandpa Jones version can be heard @: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi1tkL1ML4Q

Notes: A tab of David Eugene Edwards style of playing wayfaring stranger, based on a video of him playing it on youtube (link in tab). I've just made a straight-forward tab, and to make it simpler/smaller, I've just tabbed one variation of the verse, and used it throughout the song. In the video David plays it a little different each verse, as usual. I would recommend listening to his version of the song to find variations that you might want to use when playing this yourself. It might seem like a lot of stuff is going on in the tab since I've put in a few "ghost notes". This is just to hint that you don't have to play it note by note like a scholar. David plays a kind of two-finger thumb-lead, and the thumb brushes nearby strings now and again :) As usual it sounds quite rigid in guitar pro, but should come out fairly accurate on the banjo. Let me know if you like it or not, any feedback is welcome, feel free to comment!

Notes: Here is another great old country tune that works extremely well in bluegrass. The only recorded version I know of is Earl Taylor's, although there is a concert tape floating around of J. D. Crowe playing the song. It should be played at a moderate tempo, which facilitates playing the final measures in the second break, where I have indicated the right hand fingering. The blues run involves several notes played sequentially with the thumb. If you can't do this, alternate thumb and index finger. The third break is based on the aforementioned version by Crowe.

Notes: A simplified tab of "We Three Kings", a classic traditional Christmas song written in 1857 and published in 1863. A haunting melody, in standard G tuning and played in the Key of E minor. The 1st pages of this tab is a basic melody key, and the 2nd page is my clawhammer interpretation in 3/4 time. I've substitued D7 for the D chord since it is easier to transition from E minor to D7. Basically, the E minor chord is fretted at the D strings fretted at 2, and to make the B chord, just slide the E minor chord down to the 4th fret, and back again to E minor at the 2nd fret. I've provided alternate D measures, but there's little difference between the abbreviated D chord and D7 chord, and the D7 is a lot easier. Linked to Beginner Clawhammer, Clawhammer Gospel and Christmas Corner (It fits all 3). Lyrics and history links provided.

Notes: When the Springtime Comes Again is also known as Little Annie, and it is a fine tune popularized by the Carter Family. I first heard it played by Vern Williams, who knocked my socks off with his high tenor. I have tabbed two breaks. The first is the way I play it today, the second is closer to the way I played it 20 years ago in my band Cedar Creek in Victoria, B.C.

Notes: By Joe Mullins with Longview. This break shows many of the finer details of Scruggs licks that are sometimes simplified, e.g. the muting of the last note in bar 5 and the hammer on in bar 7, and also using the open B string in bars 7 and 8. Backup for the whole song has been tabbed, but with some minor spots I couldn't figure out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob3V7P6SRtA Same chords as "The Old Home Town".

Notes: Whistling Girl by Woven Hand (David Eugene Edwards) Based on the live performances found on youtube, and so differs a bit from the original album track. The song is originally played with a pick (on the 5string "wooden banjo thing" David uses) but it is no problem picking it with two finger style in the pattern t,t,i,t,t,i,t,i each bar. Happy Picking! :D

Notes: Thanks to Larry Campbell (OT fiddle) and Joel Hooks (classic banjo) for this hybrid arrangement (AABBACCDD). Here are all the parts, though it's still possible to play the tune like an Irish polka (AABB), or using different combinations of the original four piano parts as composed by Kerry Mills (1899). Some tunes stand the test of time.

Notes: Notice all the syncopation in this old cakewalk. I tabbed this for bluegrass banjo players who are looking for new and interesting tunes. Actually, this one dates from 1899. It's Scruggsy but also combines melodic and single-string playing. I will soon tab another version with the C-Part (rare).

Notes: Here is Crowe's take on the Flatt and Scruggs chestnut, recorded in 1975 for Rounder 0044 "J. D. Crowe and the New South" but not released until Cracker Barrell's re-release in 2002. The first (low) break is one of the greatest IMHO, in which Crowe "plays the words." The second (high) break is more improvisational. Both are full of goodies.

Notes: Here is Earl Scruggs' solo for "Why Don't You Tell Me So?", from Flatt & Scruggs' Mercury sessions. It is note for note, unless I made a mistake ;) The walking bass line is actually taken from the vocal break, not the banjo break, but I like the sound. The guitar part is not taken from Lester in any way; that's the way I play in an E position (capoed up 1) on the guitar with a thumb and finger. One of the classic banjo solos of all time, in my opinion. Have fun!

Notes: My version of WF is a bit different from some other nice ones on BHO (e.g., Jack Baker’s and Martin Blake’s) in that, as I was tabbing it out, I realized that I had been influenced by Eric Weissberg’s version on the Elektra LP “Folk Banjo Styles” (1961). Weissberg is the first 3-finger player I heard in the early 1960s, and I tried to figure out how he was playing those amazing things – all a prelude to my hearing and learning from Earl Scruggs and Bill Keith. So, although it is by no means a note-for-note interpretation of his version, consider this tab a tip of the hat to Eric Weissberg, particularly the second version of the B part.

Notes: A bluegrass classic, written by Lester Flatt and first recorded by him with Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys (including, of course, Earl Scruggs). I pulled the first break off a radio recording of Flatt and Scruggs from 1957. The beginning is a bit uncertain, because the announcer speaks over the banjo intro, but I think I got it. The second break is more improvisational, including a Keith-ish melodic sequence, and the third break is a variation on the Scruggs approach and sticks to the melody. This was perhaps the first tune I worked out on my own, in the early 1960s, back before there were personal computers, HD tv, or Lindsay Lohan.

I uploaded a video to the Hangout and got a request for a tab. This is pretty much how I play the tune.

Notes: written by Scott Vestal, tabbed by Doug Knecht This to me is a really groovin' tune, but it is difficult for me too. I haven't captured half the nuances that Scott puts in his recording on the LiveWire CD. This is just the first solo as I can play it, and not the 2nd or 3rd solo because I think Scott would have to tab those out. Good luck on a really cool tune!

Notes: This is an original song that I wrote for my 3rd instrumental album. This song is a simple melody that can help you work on brush-skips in the style of clawhammer. The mp3 of this can be heard in my profile page.

Notes: This is my tab for John Hartford's magical song With A Vamp In The Middle. I think it is important to stress that this is one of those tunes where the banjo interacts heavily with the other instruments. Played on it's own as a solo it sounds strange, but in combination with guitar, fiddle and dobro it springs to life.

Notes: Tabbed at the request of one of my students. There are two versions here. I forget why I put the asterix in there, but it probably indicates that these two lines are almost the same thing, just found at different places on the fingerboard.

Notes: In memory of Earl Scruggs, here is one of my favorites of Scruggs's breaks. If you pay attention to the nuances of the right hand patterns, you will see that Scruggs did not approach picking patterns in a formulaic way. He played the melody notes and found rhythm notes to flesh out the melody, without being strictly tied to the rolls that so many of us learned from his recordings.
