Old Spinning Wheel Banjo TAB
Banjo TAB of “The Old Spinning Wheel” FIRST break only. This is by far the most popular TAB on my site. I believe it was the first song I ever uploaded to YouTube and it remains one of my favorite songs to play
This version is in the key of C and in parts I try to imitate a “spinning” effect. It only uses three banjo chords; C, F, and G.
The recording is located here:
This combines some single-string licks along with some ideas I got from Allen Shelton.
Sorry, I don’t have a TAB for the higher/up the neck part.
