Clinch Mountain Backstep

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Unknown/None Chosen  Key: G  Tuning: Sawmill (gDGCD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: A little deviation from the norm. Raising the 2nd to C facilitates the lower register licks, and the droning C makes a nice ambient effect.

Notes: This is a tab of Walt Koken's Banjonique from 1994. It is a fascinating tune - in a way it is a simple and uncomplicated tune, and yet it is very difficult to play. Go here to watch Walt Koken play: https://youtu.be/4I8fpSoff-I

The Rainbow Connection

Genre: Popular  Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time  Key: C  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: This arrangement is mostly clawhammer, although the Intro and Interlude are played in a rudimentary 3F style (indicated on tab). Letters above the tablature lines indicate chords. This is set in the key of C, but played in the standard G tuning. A video of me playing something close to this arrangement is posted on my YouTube channel (Jack Beuthin): https://youtu.be/SDy69TvzHKM https://youtu.be/SDy69TvzHKM

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: My arrangement of this popular instrumental piece, pretty much as I played in this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKdxRa705o8&t=9s Because I didn't play exactly as I had intended, this tab was my attempt to transcribe my own playing and figure out what I actually did. The differences between what I intended to play, what I did play, and what I've tabbed are only a few notes at best. And now, five years later, I don't remember where they are. The ascending run in the second half of the "A" part in the third time through was my mis-constructing from memory an Alan Munde lick that you can find online. I like my way, so I've never swiched to Alan's even after learning it.

Notes: This tune was inspired by my joy in observing the formation of hoarfrost, an icy crystalline coating, on the trees and bushes – the flora – in my neck of the woods. It gradually emerged as I noodled around while contemplating the beauty of hoarfrost, along with life, the Universe, and everything.

Notes: This tune was Tune of the Week in the Clawhammer forum on 1/6/2023 (https://www.banjohangout.org/topic/387943). Check out the link for more information about the tune, including a link to Earl Phelps' original recording. I found the notation on Jim's Roots & Blues website helpful also (https://jimsrootsandblues.com/skunk-in-the-collard-patch/).

Winslow - Terry Baucom

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: A  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: The kickoff to Terry Baucom's great tune Winslow from the album 4th and Goal. Couldn't find it so I had to do it myself. Not going to say it's 100% note-for-note, but it's good enough to get started. I'm not terribly great with TEF, so there might be a few notation mistakes. A huge thanks to everyone on Banjo Hangout that's made my first year playing banjo pretty damn successful.

Beaumont Rag -- Key of C

Notes: I had recently worked this tune up and tabbed it out in the Key of D and uploaded that to the BHO archive ... then on New Year's Eve at a picking party, a fine guitar picker pulled this tune out, but in the Key of C. So I worked this up in C, be sure to check out the version in D as well. This is a fun tune to play in any key.
