Long Journey Home (Two Dollar Bill)
Long Journey Home
(aka Two Dollar Bill)
Banjo Tab PDF + MP3Details: The tab contains 3 banjo breaks. The 1st Break can be used for the Kickoff to the song as the melody is clearly evident in each of the tune's 4 lines. The 2nd Break, while still strongly melody-based, features variations leading into the C chord and again on the 4th line into the D chord. The 3rd Break is yet another example of working around the melody with tasteful variations that support the main theme.
Tom demonstrates all 3 breaks on the MP3. Listen to a sample here.
Style: Scruggs-style/Tom Adams-style 3-finger banjo playing
Key of G
G Tuning, gDGBD
