Bart Veerman's Five String Banjo Tablatures

  • The tablatures on these pages are strictly for personal use

  • You may not sell, redistribute, or publish these tablatures

  • You may not post, or upload, these tablatures to other websites

Most of the tabs presented here are complete studies of the five string banjo and show both leadbreaks and complete backup arrangements for the tunes. Not only that, many of them are arranged in both the three finger and clawhammer style at various skill levels so you can learn to start applying the licks and techniques on to your own favourite music. This way you'll learn to play on your own instead of knowing only a bunch of tabs without any clues as to how you can put them to good use.

Listen to some of my tunes here:

The Tablatures

  • All tabs are in PDF format to let you produce high quality printed tabs on any computer platform
  • In the style column, 3F stands for three finger, CL for clawhammer. A special note on the clawhammer tabs: if you don't play or want to play in this style, keep in mind they are still very playable doing it the three finger way. Think of it as using just another roll in your bag of tricks

Please help

If you happen to like this page and want to tell someone about it, or put up a link to it on your own page, please use this address: instead of linking it directly to one of the pages on this website. The tinnitus portion of this site can be helpful to a lot of folks that might otherwise not find it. According to the latest statistics one out of every five people has it and unfortunately, I'm one of those one in fives - it can be a real bummer. Hopefully you don't know what tinnitus is. But if you have it, or in case you're curious, check out the non-banjo part of this page and click here .

Please consider buying something

There's tons of high quality tabs and other information here you get to download for free. It's taken me a good many many hours to write them and make them available here on this website. It would be really nice if you buy one of my CDs or one of my banjo bridges as a token of your appreciation. For the price of only one banjo lesson you'd be really helping me out to cover some of the expenses I incur to keep this website "on the air." It'll be money well spent and in the worst case, you'd end up with a pretty cool CD or one the the awesomest sounding banjo bridges you've ever treated your ears on.
