Fiddlers Green Banjo / Mandolin Tab
This version of the notes are in the key of G. [ Easy to follow banjo letter notes also included ] The 4 string tenor banjo / mandolin tuning is standard GDAE plus a version in the tuning of CGDA. These are my own notes and are slightly different to other sheet music for this song, that's because I first heard it from The Wolfe Tones and this is the way I heard the notes being sang. It wasn't until much later that I heard John Connoly or Barney McKenna singing it and could then tell that they were singing it a bit different than me. It was too late at that stage as the tune was embedded in me head. More banjo / mandolin tabs .
Below are the basic banjo letter notes for quick playing, they match the sheet music.
This song was written and recorded by John Conolly. I first hear it sung back in the 1970's by The Wolfe Tones. ''Banjo'' Barney McKenna from The Dubliner's was very fond of singing it but at a much slower pace than anybody else.
