Best tabs for banjo

Hi all.  I enjoy playing banjo. It's a great sound and lots of fun to play.  There are many websites with tabs for banjo, however most are very traditional bluegrass or fiddle tunes.  There are many country rock and folk songs that work well on banjo, but it takes a long time to trawl through hundreds of tabs to find suitable tunes.  If anyone else has done this, appreciate your input in order to create a songlist for banjo players.  Please don't exclude slower songs, some of Alison Kraus' recordings sound great on banjo at a slower pace.

Thank you smile

Re: Best tabs for banjo

Hi Henry.  It's a standard 5 string banjo.  I've had it for 10 months now, I've learnt some songs with banjo tab but I would like to be able to pick along with more contemporary music.  I'm looking for input from other banjo players, who have looked for songs that adapt well to banjo.

Re: Best tabs for banjo

Hey Newbie plucker
I have been pickin' the 5 string for about 4 years now.  Love it wondering what resources you do have available to you. I like alot of folk songs, i know they aren't traditional for the 5, but they do work well and not as much pressure to race  along!
Wishing you Happy Pickin
Tina

Re: Best tabs for banjo

Hi Tina,  Thank you for replying.   The Banjo Hangout has hundreds of tabs, many are traditional bluegrass. I like to play around with other types of music (like The Pogues).  I'm working on Dirty Old Town, it is easy to play and lots of opportunity to add some effects.  I'm really pleased that someone understands where I'm coming from with this smile

Re: Best tabs for banjo

Hi there newbie plucker, I know exactly what you mean about trying to find contemporary tabs for 5string banjo, I am over on bho too and cannot find many tabs for music that i actually know, it's frustrating.
Maybe we can start a movement?

and don't worry about the banjo jokes - you know they are just jealous of our lovely instruments really wink


Keep an open mind

I am not good in playing banjo but I think I am getting there. I go to this forum if I have inquiries about banjo playing. They have banjo music but I'm afraid they ask money for some banjo music. Here it is: http://www.bluegrassworks.com/banjo_tab … _music.php

Re: Best tabs for banjo

Hello Mr. Beamer.

I just bought another bluegrass.metal compilation on Amazon.  Here it is:

http://www.amazon.com/Bluegrass-Tribute … +bluegrass

It's pretty good, if you're a fan of Zakk Wylde and BLS.
