Présentation de l'éditeur

While best known for their guitar playing, Doc and Merle Watson also excelled as clawhammer banjo players. This ebook contains clawhammer tabs for eight classic banjo tunes based on audio and video recordings by Doc and Merle. The tabs range from easy (“Tom Dooley”, “Froggy Went A-Courtin’”, and “Shady Grove”) to intermediate (“Reuben’s Train”) to difficult (“Rambing Hobo”). Lyrics for all of the songs are included as well. There are no better models for clawhammer banjo than Doc and Merle Watson. David Brooks arranges tunes and writes tablature that is easy to understand and that helps you unlock the secrets of clawhammer banjo. Brooks has taught at Kentucky Music Week and leads old-time jams in Louisville, KY. Tunes include:

Tom Dooley
Froggy Went A-Courtin’
Darlin’ Cory
Georgie Buck
Shady Grove
The Cuckoo
Reuben’s Train
Rambling Hobo (with and without Drop Thumb)

This book is best viewed by the Kindle Fire or the Kindle app running on the iPad, Mac, or PC.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book, except for the tab of Darlin Cory 31 janvier 2014
Par Alfred W - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I think the book captures each song good enough, with correct tab for at least one solo to each tune. A few elements are missing from some of them (with Doc's styles it is always so much going on that those fine details are easy to leave out or miss).

The tabs are not easy, even if it may seem so at first look. You will need some experience on playing the clawhammer style if you are to master the arrangements.
I also recommend trying to learn his substitution for the drop-thumb, because Doc Watson uses it whenever possible. It is important if you really want to learn his style.

The 'usual drop-thumb' technique I am refering to here is:
striking one string and then follow with the thumb on either string above, except the 5th string.

He instead uses multiple ways of 'off-string pull-offs' upwards :

(Example): Strike the first string and immediately add a pull-off on one of the above strings, even if it is fretted. The old book 'Songs of Doc Watson' has short tune section on the banjo where this can be seen in the tabs, although there's no clear description there.

The difference between the drop-thumb and Doc Watson style is excellently illustrated in the tune "Ramblin' Hobo" which is given first in a regular drop-thumb arr. and then in the correct variant.

Froggie went a Courtin' (from Essential... , same as the 'Home Again!' album version) is captured great, (also one of the three banjo tunes in 'Songs of Doc Watson')

Shady Grove (finally the banjo solo in print! , and correct too, although some more ideas in it could have been added, because there's lot going on there, but still it is great).

Merle Watson's clawhammer style is represented nicely on Cuckoo Bird.

Now to the downsides: While the tab for Darlin' Cory is correct melody- and stylewise, I don't know why the author has placed it in Double-C-tuning, when Doc clearly plays in open-D (graveyard tuning f#Df#AD) on the Legacy record , which he or his brother also played on the Folkways LP 'Watson Family' (now on the Smithsonian CD).
As in 'Country Blues' he gets a modal sound through this tuning (On 'Country Blues' the banjo was tuned a half or a whole step down).
The author maybe has another recorded source for Darlin Cory I don't know of, but open-D it is for the Legacy version. It also sounds better.

Otherwise, the tab is simple enough to read, (if you don't use the iPad or likewise you can view it on your computer).
No printing available at the moment.

The only other good lesson for his style that I have found is Mike Seeger's Homespun Video ' Oldtime Banjo Styles '(rel 1994) where there is an excellent segment of Doc Watson at Merlefest 1991 teaching quite many tunes and his different styles.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Is this the best format? 7 décembre 2012

I'm sure this is good tab and all, and the price is right. But I have the font size in my Kindle bumped up considerably, and I still can't make the tab out. Wouldn't it be possible to format the tab in landscape so it could be larger and fit on the page?
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Tabs are good but difficult to practice from 22 juillet 2015

The tabs in this ebook are well written, but they are difficult to play becsuse the pages are not printable. This is not a unique problem to Kindle books, however. I'll spend more time looking for banjo tabs in PDF format or other printable formats before I buy more ebook tablature.
