Maybe it is just me, but I love to sit there and pick out songs I know or songs people want to play on my Canjo.  I own a couple of Canjo Song books from Gitty, and looked around online and found a few, but I thought since this is a community of players, why not start a discussion where people can post Tabs they put down on paper for others to play or learn with.  My goal is just to get a collection of tabs together and share.

With that said, Ill start, I recently just wrote down a Tab for Mary did you know, and as I do others, Ill just reply and add.

Hope others are into this!

There’s a Tab group here, you might want to put them there?  https://cigarboxnation.com/group/cbgtabs

I saw that, but those are mostly if not all 3-4 string CBG Tabs.  I was looking for tabs for a One String Canjo and couldn't find any, so I figured why not start a discussion...
