Beginner Banjo TAB to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

My beginner to beginner-intermediate arrangement of “Over the Rainbow” is now live at sheetmusic plus for purchase.

*Please note that this arrangement is the one in the video below and not the significantly more advanced one on my youtube  This is geared for those playing only a year or more.  It’s largely a basic melody with a few flourishes here and there.  Key of C.  This arrangement was custom made for a certain skill level and as a tool to teach students their chords in the key of C.
