Deep River Blues – Banjo TAB

Deep River Blues Banjo TAB

I’ve been meaning to write up an arrangement of Deep River Blues for awhile.  This 5-string banjo arrangement is done in the key of D with the 5th string tuned up to A.  Many guitar versions are done in the key of E.  In order to play along, just capo on the 2nd fret and play this version here.

Prerequisites- You’ll need to know your basic D, G, and A closed form shapes as well as a few basic rolls (Forward).  There are some INSIDE ROLLS and hammer-ons.

At the same time, I don’t believe this TAB is too difficult.  Well within grasp for the beginner-intermediate to intermediate student.
