You are my Sunshine BEGINNER

You are my Sunshine banjo TAB

This Banjo TAB for “You are my sunshine” is in the key of G. It’s easy enough for the beginner banjo student.  The TAB uses only a few basic banjo rolls, your forward roll and alternating thumb roll.  As a prerequisite, the major ornamentation you need to know is a pull-off. I wrote this arrangement so that any listener would here the melody clearly.

Here is a video of the version you are getting:

Some history about You are my Sunshine:

You are my Sunshine was copy written by Jimmy Davis & Charles Mitchell in 1939.  Many people don’t know this, but the song wasn’t written by Jimmy Davis, he simply purchased the rights to it.  Legend has it a man from Lagrange, GA named Oliver Hood wrote the tune at an earlier point in time.  Gene Autry sang this classic song in his movie Back in the Saddle again.

Jimmy Davis of course later went on to become governor of Louisiana.  When I was younger, I remember seeing him at bluegrass festivals in GA a time or two.
