Beginner Banjo Songbook ~ Three Finger Style

Beginner Banjo song TABS

The Beginner Banjo Songbook includes the following songs:

Man of Constant Sorrow

Cripple Creek

Old Joe Clark

Bill Cheatum (Three finger style)

Cumberland Gap

Lonesome Road Blues

Angeline The Baker


Nine Pound Hammer

Oh! Susanna

Soldier’s Joy

Salty Dog Blues

Oh My Darlin Clementine

Salt Creek

Little Maggie

These are bluegrass jam session favorites.  My goal was to fill the void the pure beginner has when stepping up another level.  These aren’t pure beginner arrangements, but what I would consider a next step after you know your basic rolls, slides, and so forth.   Most of these tunes are in standard tuning, except Angeline The Baker, Soldier’s Joy.
