Golden Slippers Banjo TAB
This banjo tab for Golden Slippers is a good Single-string workout for beginners in the first section; the B section uses mostly common bluegrass banjo rolls. I’m a fan of mixing styles.
Golden Slippers is a common bluegrass and fiddle tune favorite you’ll hear at a lot of jams.
NOTE-Some people play this in the key of A, so you’ll want to bust out your capo and practice it in A as well.
Check out the other Fiddle Tunes I have on this site ( My other Banjo TABS ) , there are lots.
Some history behind Golden Slippers
It was written in 1879 by an African American named James A. Bland.
Unfortunately, like many tunes from this post Civil-War era, it’s popularity has a checkered past. It was performed in Minstrel shows, often by blackface performers. The tune was late made famous by the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
