Thread Name: Banjo Tab
Subject: RE: Banjo Tab
I think the most useful thing would be a beginning banjo book that shows 2 things, a basic accompaniment for a song and then a beginners solo version that sounds good by itself without having a guitar or other instrumental support.

So far, I haven't seen any except for Pete Seeger's book which doesn't have enough songs in it.

I think Dan Levenson is about the only one who may have a beginner's orientation.

Being able to just play a simple Seeger-style song without too much activity in the three-finger or clawhammer style would be useful.

I'd write it if I had the time.

Some of the basic tunes like Skip To My Lou, Cindy, or other basic banjo tunes could be
selected.
