Tab Books! Come and Get 'em!

Over the years I've assembled a few tab books for bluegrass and old-time banjo.  I've offered them as print copies for several years, but recently I've had requests for digital downloads.  So, here's my official debut into the digital download market.

My Musical Misadventures: My first tab book from the 1990s has a bunch of melodic tabs and a few guitar, mandolin and ukulele tabs.

In the mid 1990s I bought a copy of TabRite and began converting a bunch of my hand-written tabs.  Pretty soon it turned into a book.  I made a couple dozen copies and just sold it locally.  Banjo Master Bill Keith bought the last of my stash in 1996 and I figured that was that.  Recently. though, I found a copy tucked away in a briefcase, so I've scanned it and now I'm offering it to you here. It includes the following:

Banjo Tabs

Arkansas Traveler, Banjo Signal, Beaumont Rag, Bill Cheatham, Canadian John, Cherokee Shuffle, Clinch Mountain Backstep, Dixie Hoe-Down, Farewell Blues, Fireball Mail, Good-Bye Liza Jane, Ground Speed, Londonderry Hornpipe, Old Joe Clark, Open Faced Reel, Redwing, Salt Creek, Shady Hollow Bounce, Soldier's Joy, St. Anne's Reel, Sweet Georgia Brown
