Bells of St Mary’s for Banjo

My latest banjo arrangement up is “Bells of St Mary’s.”  This song has always been a favorite of mine, I used to play it in contest many years ago.

This version is for those between beginner and intermediate.  If you have a basic knowledge of forward and forward-reverse banjo rolls, along with some major/minor chord shapes you won’t find it to terribly difficult.

I wrote this up from the version I heard Bing Crosby sing, I basically used all of the chords from that arrangement with just a few exceptions.  Most banjo players play this song different; I wanted to be closer to the movie version/original.

The TAB can be found on my website here, this TAB features melody notes highlighted in yellow.
