Nine Pound Hammer

Banjo Tab PDF + MP3

Style: Scruggs-style/Tom Adams-style 3-finger banjo playing
Key of G
G Tuning, gDGBD
51 measures

Details: Tab contains 3 banjo breaks, based on the melody as it is traditionally sung. The first break follows the melody throughout while the 2nd break substitutes Scruggs licks on the second and fourth lines. The third break takes your playing outside of the melody with a tasteful variation in phrasing and a bluesy second half played in the Tom Adams style.

Tom demonstrates all 3 breaks on the MP3.
