I’ve been working on taking simple tunes and “banjoizing” them. After taking a hack on this one, I took a look at how you did it.
I’m always curious as to why you mix up playing the 5th string first or the 1st string first, such as in measure 14 on the alternate beats. Is there a reason for this, like you’re maybe setting yourself for measure 15?
I’ve been working on the beginner tab for Will the Circle… and listening to your three versions of the song, and I’m wondering if I’m missing some of the tab. It doesn’t quite sound like what I’m hearing.
Also, is this same version included in your ebook?
PS – I’m also having some difficulty consistently getting a clear c chord with my middle finger. Any suggestions?
Which part doesn’t sound the same to you? Are you sure you’re listening to the same version as the tab you’re looking at since there’s multiple versions of this song?
The tab is just for the lead part for this song.
Is your nail on your middle finger long? If your nail is too long, it will make doing that C chord very difficult.
If not, it’s most likely just the angle of your hand. I’d recommend starting the C with just your first and third finger and once you get that sounding clear try adding your second finger without changing the position of your hand.
Thanks for responding so quickly. I like your suggestion for the c chord. When you say the tab is just for the lead of the song, doesn’t the lesson provide the tab for the entire song? If so, is it possible to get the tab for the whole song?
