5-String Banjo Selections
in TablEdit

    Welcome to our TablEdit Banjo page. Looking for a special song title? Do a quick song search by holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard together with the "F" key, then type in a word or two of the song title in the box that appears, and press ENTER.

Meanwhile, please read through the following info about our listings...

Purchasing TablEdit Tabs...

        When you purchase tabs in TablEdit format via PayPal, they are emailed to you as attachments the same day your order is received and confirmed by PayPal. Because TablEdit tabs are emailed, there are no shipping charges. To open TablEdit attachments, it's necessary to download TablEdit's free tab viewer (called "TEFview") to your computer, if you haven't already done so. For download info, just click here.

        If you're not familiar with how TablEdit works, it is a software program and learning tool that enables you to see tabs on your computer screen and print them out, using a variety of fonts and type faces. You can also hear them played back in MIDI format at any tempo you wish, just by pressing the space bar on your keyboard.

Free MIDI Tab Samples...

        To hear a MIDI sample of any selection in the following listings, click on the order number shown at the left of the selection. Most of the samples include guitar and bass accompaniment so that you may hear the arrangements in their usual context. The samples usually consist of the first 8 to 20 measures, depending on tab length, but are occasionally taken from other sections of the tabs that are more representative of song identity.

Song Descriptions and Histories...

        If you've visited us before, you may have noticed that most of the listings now include additional info in the song descriptions. The reason for its inclusion is that I believe on some level, knowing as much as possible about a song's origin and history in terms of when it was written and/or recorded, and by whom, helps us perform it better. Of course, maybe it's just a story I tell myself, and in reality it doesn't help much at all...



BASIC LEVEL
For players with 6 to 18 months experience - great for jam sessions.
