Loch Lomond


I am using the beginner banjo tab linked below and struggling to drop thumb where it ‘feels right’ so its not on the tab but in my head I guess. I’m using an iPhone and emailing it so the clip is short.

“O ye’ll tak’ the high road and I’ll tak the low road,
An’ I’ll be in Scotland afore ye;
But me and me true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o’ Loch Lomon’.”

Loch Lomond Tab

    I like this. I can’t wait to try it.

    what are the vertical strokes above/below some of the frets. For example, the first note.

      It’s a classic folk/roots tune and very enjoyable. I’m not really sure Andrew, sorry. When it comes to tabs I try not to get too fancy into the book learnin’. lol I was hitting the 3rd string open and I think/hope that’s what it means.

    Great job Andrew! It must be that fancy banger you got there. Sounds good to me, just smooth it out and sing along.
