AMAZING! Ben should do a lesson on dueling banjo’s, it would be the first guitar and banjo duet on the website and would be a lot of fun
It seems that he did a lesson some years ago, banjo & guitar but due to copyright has he has removed it. If you email him he may still have the TAB.
@jfest did you end up emailing Ben to see if he still had the tab?
Dave was brilliant and a great loss to the banjo world. Glad his music and style lives on in the many videos he recorded and put up by his family on YouTube.
Awesome clip. First time caller. Before becoming a member I used to check out a Banjo Ben You Tube lesson for duelling banjo but I think he called it lonesome banjo. It’s no longer on the website. Does anyone have a tab?
Hi Graham if you are a GoldPick Member send @BanjoBen an email and he may be able to help.
If not try this link http://www.bluegrassbanjo.org/xavier.html
You will need TefView or TablEdit to view/play this tab
Thanks Archie. Much appreciated. A fair few new tunes to get into.
Hi Graham. I should warn you, Xavier Baron’s arrangement is a tough one to get your head round if you are a beginner/ intermediate level student. I’ve managed to play it through a couple of times without a train wreck. But I have not played it in a long while and I know I would struggle to get through it. Good luck with that one.
Just had the chance to listen this one through. Is a bit of a beast but will muddle through. Some great licks to add to the repertoire. Hey Archie, being relatively new to the Gold Pick Member thing how do I email @banjoben to ask for the tab. I tried through the Help link but not sure if that’s the way to go.
Here you go Graham Ben@banjobenclark.com
I like this rendition - tying in the whole band.
Entertaining little twist on it and their show would seem to be a real hoot.
Thanks for posting @Archie.
I know we all can count on you to search what’s out there and find these gems… so thanks again!
I just can’t tire of hearing this tune…
I LOVE dueling banjos, I can play it both on the guitar and banjo, the only problem is I can’t play them both at the same time!
Like this Harrison.
Did he partition his brain to be able to do that??
