Dr. Banjo Tab Archive

Here in one place are all banjo solos recorded by Pete Wernick, from 1971 to the present.
We invite you to browse the entire archive and select those tabs of interest for quick and easy download.

“This unique archive is largely thanks to the dedicated and generous work of Brian Ford of Duluth, MN. Brian's years of diligent effort now allows others to explore my life's work as a banjo player. I sincerely hope you'll enjoy learning to play these solos with the blending of melody and meaningful ornamentation I've tried to create.”

To browse the Archive:
Tabs are grouped by album. Select an album to see its titles. Check each item you wish to purchase.

Tabs are marked either $1 or $0.75 per title (includes all solos for that title) -- according to whether they're double-checked for accuracy. The $1 tabs are “as accurate as possible” -- checked carefully by Pete and Brian. The $0.75 tabs are generally 90-100% exactly as played, though not yet double-checked by Pete.

“I have followed Pete Wernick since his days in Country Cooking. He is a premier artistic stylist. He rejects the mundane, shapes the new, and provides pathways for the rest of us. His taste and melodic integrity rank him as one of the country's artistic treasures. His inventive concept, dynamics, and brilliant, attractive inventions make him the love of people who have never before heard the art of banjo as well as delighting seasoned professionals.”
-- Pat Cloud
