Welcome to Gospel Tunes for Clawhammer Banjo. After many years of requests by you and the publisher, I have made this collection of Gospel favorites available to those of you who play the clawhammer banjo style. The versions of the tabs presented here are neither overly simple nor particularly complex. Anyone with basic clawhammer skills should be able to play the tab as written or get close enough so they can create a satisfying version of each tune for themselves.

Should you find you need an instructional book, please get my Clawhammer Banjo From Scratch book with companion CDs (MB20190BCD) and the corresponding DVDs which are also available from Mel Bay. You may also wish to see Jack Hatfield's Old-Time Gospel Banjo Solos (MB96755BCD) for 3 finger bluegrass / Scruggs versions of many of the tunes presented here.
