Notes: The tablature reflects my current take on this lovely traditional tune, which shifts between the keys of A major and A minor -- shades of Bill Monroe.

Tombigbee Waltz (2F)

Genre: Old Time  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: G  Tuning: Drop C (gCGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by jack_beuthin, updated: 5/10/2022
Download: PDF

Notes: I play this in G using the Drop C tuning so that the low C on the 4th string resonates when I brush on the C chord. Both index- and thumb-lead are utilized throughout the tune. A video demo of my rendition is on YouTube: https://youtu.be/v-W8b5eIgJ0

Undone in Sorrow (easier version) - 2F

Notes: This is a somewhat simplified version of how Ola Belle Reed played it. I've tried to retain some of the essence of her approach while eliminating some of the more challenging maneuvers. I have also posted a tab that is a more literal capture of how OBR played this song.

Notes: Here is my take on a jaunty little tune that Bill Monroe recorded late in his career. After fooling around with it on the mandolin, I have rejigged my banjo tablature, to bring it closer to Monroe's version. The structure of the tune is AAB.

John Henry in G / Earl Scruggs

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by corcoran, updated: 4/9/2022
Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: Most of us are probably familiar with Scruggs's lovely version of John Henry in D tuning, on the "Foggy Mountain Banjo" album. But he also was known to play JH in G tuning. Here is my interpretation of his straightforward elegant break in G from the Flatt and Scruggs tv show on WSM, with vocal by Hylo Brown. You can find Scruggs's version in Vol. 1 of the DVDs, and also on youtube.com.
